The restaurants Fork and ALAVITA have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House and Meals to Unite to feed parents with a child in the NICU or pediatric unit. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are no longer using volunteers and need assistance.
The joint effort between the restaurants and Meals to Unite, organized by Lauren and Nick Flores, helps to provide roughly 50 meals per day. “We feel grateful to our friends Lauren & Nick for including us in their ‘initiative for good’ by helping those most in need in our community. The Ronald McDonald House does such important work. Due to the current climate, they’re unable to have volunteers and are especially in need of assistance. It is vital we all work together to keep that going,” Cameron and Amanda Lumsden, owners of Fork and ALAVITA, said in a press release.
To donate, visit the Meals to Unite page at gofundme.com. For every meal that is delivered, Fork and ALAVITA will donate 10 percent of proceeds to a nonprofit organization tailored to benefit community members in need.
