The Detroit Free Press and the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers have raised nearly $100,000 to feed 5,000 Healthcare Heroes over the next four weeks. They are providing nutritious, locally sourced meals for healthcare workers, while helping to sustain beloved metro Detroit restaurants that are struggling through this shutdown.  These efforts will provide 1,250 meals to Ascension Providence Hospitals for the week of April 27th.

Dr. Justin Thomas (a neurosurgery resident in his training at Ascension Providence, part of the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine) and his father, Jon, are looking to assist this amazing effort! They are looking to raise another $50,000 to provide an additional 2,500 signature entrée meals for the Healthcare Heroes at Ascension St. John in Detroit along with Ascension Macomb and Ascension Oakland Hospitals during the week of May 11th. The community wants to show our appreciation to as many healthcare workers as possible.

Meals will be provided by chefs from the 10 previous winners of the Detroit Free Press/Metro Chevy Dealers Top 10 Best New Restaurants: Folk, Grey Ghost, Ima, Leila, Marrow, Mink, Pernoi, Saffron De Twah, SheWolf and Yum Village.  Donations will cover food costs, restaurant labor, individual containers and delivery.

Funds raised beyond our goal will be used to provide additional meals to our Healthcare Heroes.

We want to thank the Detroit Free Press, the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers and several local distributors who are also donating food and containers to help this incredible cause: Motor City Seafood, Quality Meats & Culinary Specialties, Guernsey Farms Dairy, Carmela Foods Inc., Highland Supply, Cannelle by Matt Knio and Green Safe Products. 

Donations will be collected until April 30th. Join us in thanking our Healthcare Heroes on the front line and supporting local Detroit restaurants who are working to keep their doors open.
