UPDATE* The Hero Meals program has ended. Thank you to everyone who donated to feed our front lines heroes and support our downtown restaurants.
Hero Meals was created to feed our local front line heroes through donated meals purchased from participating Downtown Tacoma restaurants by our local community.
Who are front line heroes? They are our medical workers, first responders, law enforcement, grocery store clerks, delivery drivers, bus drivers, and others.
To start, our goal is to deliver 100 meals 3 days a week to our front line heroes serving our community during this difficult time. Deliveries will be made Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We will work with local organizations to ensure meals are spread throughout the community.
You can help, click the donate button below to make a donation to our Hero Meal fund. All proceeds will be used to purchase 3 meals for $25 from the participating restaurants below. We will work to make sure that your donations are spread equally among all the participating restaurants.
You can also donate meals by placing an order with the participating restaurants directly though their contact information below. Please make sure you call during business hours. You can also order from the restaurant of your choice by clicking the donate button below their listing and noting their name.
All meals will be collected and delivered by the Downtown Tacoma Partnership to front line heroes across the city as a thank you from the community.
Looking to place a large order of $500 or more? Want to add your restaurant to the list? Please contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
