We’ll now be bringing the meals on Tuesday, the 8th of March instead. Between difficulties getting in supplies, like the cryovac bags we deliver the meals in, and staffing the restaurant, as well as raising enough donations to cover 80% of the cost of the meals, we’ll need an extra week to accomplish this. We’re looking forward to helping our healthcare friends on Tuesday, March 8.
It seems like everywhere I turn, someone is talking or writing about FOMO- Fear of Missing Out. Last week, though, when the denizens of Hill Farm Neighborhood graciously put together a donation run in hopes of supporting beleaguered health care workers one more time, we fed a bunch of them, fifty at Banner’s South Campus Emergency Department and fifty at the neighboring Crisis Response Center. As it turns out, however, there are 125 people working in the ED, and 200 working at the Crisis Response Center. That’s left me with a severe case of FOLO- Fear of Leaving Out- and we intend to rectify it with another donation run. If we can get the donations together- 180 meals, and we’ll donate the remaining 45 meals- we’ll take meals out to these hard-working people on Friday, February 25th.
If you’re interested in donating a meal or two, and helping us keep our doors open by feeding stressed-out health care professionals through Feast, we’d be grateful, as would they. You can call in a donation at 326-9363, or drop by or mail a check, made out to Feast with “Meal Donations” written in the memo line. Our address is 3719 E. Speedway, Tucson, AZ 85716.
You likely know what an Emergency Department is all about, and have undoubtedly been grateful for one at some point in your life, and the Crisis Response Center deals with patients experiencing acute mental illness, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you want to show them some love, and show us some love at the same time, we’d all appreciate it greatly.
