Ludlow Street Italian Restaurant ‘Feeds the Frontline’ COVID-19 Workers with Daily Meals

Posted on: April 10th, 2020 at 5:15 am by

Ludlow Street Italian restaurant, Taverna di Bacco, recently announced the ambitious “Feed the Frontline” project. The program aims to serve daily meals to those folks fighting in the trenches against the novel coronavirus.

More from their website:

Our goal is to feed as many nurses, doctors, firemen, policemen, and paramedics as we can. They are working day in and day out to keep our city, friends, and family safe. The least we can do is provide them a delicious meal that will nourish their body as well as their soul. We plan to do this daily until the pandemic is over, but we need your help.

To that end, Chef Maurizio Crescenzo reportedly feeds more than one hundred mouths per day. An admirable feat for a restaurant itself affected by the COVID-19 shutdown.

In order to continue the selfless work, Crescenzo set up a crowdfunding page online. The campaign has a goal of $50,000 and is nearly half met.
