Feed Our Hospitals: How a non-profit created in the early days of COVID-19 is impacting our New York City hospital workers and the restaurant industry

By Teresa Bruno

I sat down with Jessica Vernon, Lauren Smith and Kelsey Orem of Feed Our Hospitals to discuss their mission and the impact that they have made so far. 

Take a moment to put yourself in the shoes of a physician, a nurse or a respiratory therapist working on the front lines of COVID-19.
