04/13/20 Boise restaurants, Ronal McDonald House raise money to feed families

By Jacob Scholl,

Fork and Alavita, two downtown Boise restaurants with the same owners, announced they are partnering with the Idaho Ronald McDonald House to feed families with a child in neonatal intensive care or pediatric units at hospitals.

Because of the possibility of spreading the coronavirus, the Ronald McDonald House is no longer using volunteers, but the need to feed families still remains.

Fork and Alavita have stepped in to prepare and deliver meals, and for each meal they deliver they will donate 10% of the proceeds to benefit those in need, according to a GoFundMe page managed by Cameron and Amanda Lumsden, owners of the restaurants.

Donations made to the page will go into the same fund of proceeds from the restaurants.

You can also help the Ronald McDonald House by donating to its fundraiser to provide groceries, cleaning supplies and meals to families in need.
