Charlotte woman supplies meals to workers on front lines of COVID-19 crisis

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For weeks, Channel 9 has been reporting on the efforts to get personal protective equipment and other supplies to doctors and nurses on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak.

One local woman, however, is making sure they have the food they need to get them through the grueling 12-hour days.

“Because when you’re busy in the hospital like that, you don’t have time to think about food,” organizer Carolina Elliott said. “So many of them go their entire shift and have a bag of chips so to have it there has just been incredible.”

They set up a GoFundMe to try and raise $30,000 with the goal to raise enough to serve up 100 meals a day for the next 30 days.
