In the U.S., CURO is proud to be the largest sponsor of Frontline Foods. In addition to supporting the city chapters with the greatest need, CURO launched the Frontline Foods Wichita chapter that has delivered more than 10,000 meals to local healthcare workers and first responders.
In Canada, volunteers from Cash Money established their own Meals 2 Frontline program to deliver meals to healthcare workers across the greater Toronto area. To date, CURO has provided over 22,000 meals to workers in more than 70 different healthcare facilities in Ontario.
As part of the Meals 2 Frontline initiative, Cash Money covers the costs of all donated meals and coordinates deliveries each week between nine local restaurant partners and the healthcare facilities. Participating healthcare facilities now include rehabilitation centers, long term care facilities, and first responders, among others. Meals are always fully cooked and chilled so that recipients can enjoy whenever and however they like.
“I am proud of our team members who work this program week in and week out with a sense of purpose and pride,” said Bill Baker, President and Chief Operating Officer. “And thank you to all of our frontline workers for the heroics you show each and every day.”
CURO’s efforts to feed frontline workers will continue throughout 2021. To learn more about the Meals 2 Frontline initiative, visit their dedicated Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/meals2frontline.
