Brisbane’s hurting restaurants have banded together to feed our frontline health workers. The essential services of health care are being manned by many around the clock to keep people safe amid the extraordinary changes sweeping the territories and states nation.
At the same time, the Brisbane restaurant industry is on its knees, but here’s how everyday people can help both!
Feed the Frontline is a win-win idea that sees some of Brisbane’s best restaurants deliver meals to nurses, doctors and medical professionals working around the clock to combat COVID-19.
An adaptation of a Los Angeles initiative, the idea has already raised close to $20,000 in a few days and is being championed by Brisbane cooking class instructor Fleur Sharpe of Cook Live Love, who is also now out of work like so many in the hospitality industry.
“With a donation you can send a meal to a frontline worker and keep a restaurant open. Meal vouchers will be distributed in consultation with Brisbane’s most affected hospitals to those who need them most,” Ms Sharpe said.
Renowned restaurants such as E’cco Bistro (Philip Johnson), The Wolfe (Josh Lopez), Moda (Javier Codina), Spaghetti House Trattoria (Claire Parviz), 85 Miskin (Brent Farrell) and Proof BBQ & Booze (Ryan Lane), Burger PL8 in Jindalee and OMG Decadent Donuts are just some of the names involved.
“The service will see doctors, nurses and other health professionals provided with a delicious meal in these difficult times so that when they finish a very long shift they don’t then need to shop and cook,” she said.
“Many of Brisbane’s restaurants have closed permanently due to the virus, while others are offering takeaway to try to stay afloat – and keep at least some staff employed and suppliers (including farmers) paid. Feed the Frontline helps our hospitality industry AND our frontline healthcare workers.”
