MONTREAL — The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation has teamed up with Uber Eats to feed hospital staff.
Through the partnership, Uber Eats will provide $75,000 worth of meals, allowing all employees at the Children’s Hospital to order a meal at the end of a long workday from one of the many participating restaurants.
“We salute the resilience of the medical personnel who get up every morning to care for those who are sick. We want to thank them and simplify their lives by giving them a break from cooking,” says Jonathan Hamel, manager of Public Affairs for Quebec at Uber.
“It’s so comforting, especially at this time, to see the support that the population is extending towards our young patients and our dedicated staff who are battling relentlessly against this illness,” says Renée Vézina, president of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. “The economic situation is exceptional, but together we will rise above this crisis.”
This initiative is also intended to benefit restaurants, not only feeding healthcare workers, but providing a financial boost to the local economy.
