As health workers are battling to keep Arizonans safe from COVID-19, restaurants are suffering from the devastating economic impact of the virus.
As members of the community, the Arizona Interscholastic Association and its partners are collecting donations to support both frontline health workers and restaurants, according to a release.
Feed the Frontline AZ is designed so the community can donate meals from Arizona restaurants to health workers on the frontlines. Health workers receive a meal while they are caring for Arizonans, and local restaurants receive much-needed business to stay open.
The program will continue into May and coincide with the annual AIA Champions Gala, which honors exceptional high school seniors and school administrators.
“Each May, we honor champions throughout the state. This year, it is appropriate to also support the champions that are caring for our community,” AIA Executive Director David Hines stated in the release. “This is a way for our sponsors, students, schools and communities to come together. We are thankful for all of those who are taking care of us and for our partners and sponsors for making this possible.”
The Champions Gala and #FeedTheFrontlineAZ meal drive are supported by the Arizona Cardinals, Albertsons Safeway, Banner Health, Subway, Raising Cane’s and Taco Bell. The results of this effort will be highlighted during the Champions Gala virtual event to be broadcast live at AZPreps365.com at a date in May to be determined.
