CLEVELAND — An organization in Cleveland is working to feed those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic while supporting local businesses also being impacted by the virus.

Fund to Feed Our First Responders was started by The Amanda Pohlman Team-Keller Williams Greater Cleveland Southwest and kicked off last week.

The goal of the organization is to provide free meals from local restaurants that are still offering carryout orders and delivering those meals to individuals who have been nominated as heroes.

Doctors, nurses, firefighters EMTs, paramedics, National Guard members, police officers and other “Hometown Heroes” working to keep the city safe and healthy can be nominated for a free thank-you meal by clicking here.

This week’s meals included either a large pizza or a spaghetti dinner from local Italian restaurant Marotta's in Cleveland Heights.

Fund to Feed Our First Responders said it plans to deliver the free meals three times a week for the foreseeable future.
