We're bringing the Durango community together to help support both front-line health workers and local independent restaurants. We are implementing a program created by one of the country's foremost chefs and restaurateurs that lets the community donate meals from local restaurants to healthcare workers on the front-lines and others in need. Healthcare workers get a nourishing meal, and local restaurants get badly needed business to keep running and keep staff employed.
We need your help to support healthcare heroes and our local independent restaurants!
DONATE TODAY! https://foundation.local-first.org/feed-frontlines/
