A campaign to feed front-line health care workers caring for COVID-19 patients is once again in action at UAB. It is a partnership between UAB Advancement and the UAB Department of Food and Nutrition Services, with donations from the community.
The campaign’s first phase, which launched April 1, 2020, raised more than $76,000 and served more than 16,000 meals purchased from those donations in just over four weeks; following the campaign pause, the remaining $21,000 gift balance was used to serve nearly 4,000 additional meals in the following months. Since April, Meals for Heroes has served more than 22,000 meals.
“The first iteration of Meals for Heroes last year showed us just how supportive our community can be of our health care workers,” said Charlotte Beeker, associate vice president for Food, Nutrition and Guest Services at UAB Medicine. “We’re excited to welcome that support again.”
