Meals for AP5: COVID19 Patient Unit

Chicago, IL

Story

The Swedish Hospital staff are working tirelessly to keep us all safe while we are staying home to keep them safe. Let's give back and help fuel them with meals at this critical time. This is also a chance to support our local restaurants and delivery drivers. STAY HOME AND HEALTHY, thus no home cooked meals please. The Northshore Team sent us this message: "NorthShore University Health System is thankful for your food donation to the hospital. There has been a wonderful outpouring of support for the hospital staff and it does not go unnoticed. NorthShore feels truly fortunate to have such a caring community. Please know that the food donation must comply with appropriate guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety. - Food must come from restaurants only and must be individually wrapped and sealed—no large tin family-style pans. Pizza is the ONLY exception - Food must not contain nuts or nut products. - For precautionary measures and for the safety and protection of our entire staff the hospital is unable to accept homemade foods. For more questions about food donations please email Jennifer at JTscherney@schosp.org STEPS 1. Select date and time slot of your choice by clicking "claim" to donate a breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee/snack. 2. Quantity will vary and will be given for each time slot. (we realize some are large groups, anything helps, doesn't need to account for all) 3. Pick any local restaurant of your choice to place your order and utilize either their delivery service or Grub Hub/Uber Eats/Door Dash. NO PERSONAL DELIVERIES. NO GIFT CARDS. 4. In your claimed spot please specify the donor’s name, the name of the restaurant the delivery is coming from and a brief description of what is ordered - this is very helpful for the hospital so they know what to expect. 5. Work with the restaurant and delivery person to provide them with specific instructions on where to deliver. 6. Please note when calling to place your order please mention that you are donating your meal as we have found many restaurants are providing some type of discount for your good deed! We understand that during this uncertain time this is a substantial financial ask so we hope that people create small groups to help spread the cost. Also, please keep your receipts and check with your accountants/tax preparers to find out if you can utilize this as a tax deductible donation. We are doing our part by staying home, but this is one small thing we can do as a community to mobilize behind those that must go to work to help our communities!
