The Atlanta Hawks through the Hawks Foundation and State Farm are providing support and resources to deliver meals for the frontline workers treating COVID-19 patients at Emory Healthcare through an innovative multi-week meal program. Miller Union and Forza Storico will be providing a combined 4,000 meals weekly over the next four weeks, allowing the restaurants to re-employ workers who were recently laid off or furloughed due to the financial effects of the COVID-19 situation.
Emory Healthcare, the most comprehensive health system in Georgia, employs over 1,000 frontline workers rising to the occasion in caring for COVID-19 patients while improving lives and providing hope for the Atlanta community. Through this program, the restaurants have been able to support their staff and farmers, while providing a healthy, delicious meal to those serving our community. The innovative multi-week meal program is expected to be expanded in the near future, potentially providing a significant boost to the Atlanta restaurant economy while continuing to serve the healthcare community throughout greater Atlanta.
