Created as an emergency response to the healthcare and economic crisis of COVID-19, Delivering with Dignity has delivered more than 212,000 individual meals directly to the doorsteps of the valley’s most vulnerable individuals and families while also keeping dozens of restaurant staff employed since launching in March. As the pandemic continues to surge, the demand for Delivering with Dignity continues to grow and the need for community support increases.
The heart and soul of Delivering with Dignity can be found in its Food Heroes, who now deliver an average of 6,500 meals per week while abiding by strict health and social distancing guidelines. Each delivery can feed recipients for three days.
With more than a hundred Food Hero volunteers currently, the program is asking members of the community looking to help to volunteer to be a Food Hero, especially during the upcoming holiday season. To sign up for a Food Hero shift visit: https://volunteer.uwsn.org/need/detail/?need_id=531830.
People can also support the program with financial donations. Just $6 can make a difference by covering the cost of one high-quality nutritious meal made by the professional culinary teams of Delivering with Dignity restaurant partners, including Honey Salt, Graffiti Bao, Valencian Gold, and The Jolt Coffee Co. Monetary donations can be made online at https://www.deliveringwithdignitylv.org/donate.
