The Washington State China Relations Fund (WSCRF), the charitable arm of the Washington State China Relations Council (WSCRC), has joined forces with the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Washington State (CCCWA) to provide meals to frontline workers fighting Covid-19 while simultaneously supporting local restaurants.
CCCWA and partnering organizations and restaurants initiated their “Food with Love” Program on March 30, 2020 (https://foodwithlovecovid19.com). The program recruited 15 local restaurants to prepare meals to be delivered to frontline healthcare workers and first responders at over 20 hospitals, police stations and mobile testing sites. To date over 11,000 meals have been delivered. The meals delivered to date have been financed by donations from the restaurants themselves, an in-kind contribution from Chowbus, a food delivery system, and by cash donations. To meet the initial target of raising $400,000 to providing 17,500 meals by June 30, 2020, the program needs to raise an additional $58,000 to complete its objective.
The WSCRC and WSCRF, recognizing the great efforts by the Chinese Community in Washington State to pitch in to defeat the virus, encourage its members and partners to support this effort. The WSCRF is able to receive donations and issue a tax-deductible receipt. We appreciate your support.
