Last week we told you about Feed The Frontline, an initiative from A Moveable Feast Catering which is a newly launched, not-for-profit part business aimed at feeding our healthcare workers. Since then though, we’ve come across a bunch of others doing similar things.
Here’s how you can feed the frontline.
A Moveable Feast Catering
These guys are dropping meals to the teams at St John of God Midland and Royal Perth Hospital (with talk of expanding to more hospitals soon) so the crew their can think more about keeping our community safe and less about what they’re going to eat. You can help by jumping online and donating a meal for $10. At last count, they’ve had 2,200 meals donated, but let’s try and get that number up to 10,000.
Launched by the WA Mobile Food Vendors Association, Buy-A-Meal is helping small businesses and healthcare workers all at once. You can head over to their website and donate anything from a coffee or sweet treat to a hearty meal to keep our doctors and nurses going through these tough times.
The Little Banksia
The Little Banksia in Kensington has already raised over $1000 through their pay-it-forward and buy a coffee project. When you go in to get your morning brew, you can simply pay for one extra coffee and that will be donated to a health care worker or a teacher.
Cambridge Corner Store, La Petite Floreat, Amore And More
A bunch of businesses in Floreat organised a donation for the frontline staff at Fiona Stanley Hospital and ever since the community has started backing them with more and more donations so they can keep doing it. Next time you need a coffee or a takeaway meal, pop a few dollars in the tip jar and these guys—Cambridge Corner Store, La Petite Floreat and Amore—will pay it forward to hospital workers, ambulance drivers and other deserving members of the community.
Kirkwood Deli in Swanbourne isn’t even asking for donations, they’re just giving coffees away to any hospital workers, provided they have an ID card. But, we’d be willing to bet they wouldn’t mind if you donated a few bucks to cover the cost of those coffees. You know what to do.
