Let's keep the Twin City restaurants busy

and our healthcare

workers well fed.

The coronavirus has made life difficult for all of us in the Twin Cities and beyond. Without question, people in the restaurant and healthcare industries are some of the most affected. We created this site to help both. By enabling participating hospitals to post daily shifts open to meal donations and local restaurants providing take-out meals, we hope to simultaneously generate needed business for restaurants and feed our brave healthcare workers.

How it works.

STEP 1: Click on the hospital you would like to donate meals to.

STEP 2: Follow the instructions on the specific hospital page.

STEP 3: Pick a restaurant from the provided list, call and order the meals.

A note to the Twin Cities Restaurants:

The Twin Cities page went live on 4/8. We are seeking approval for any and all interested restaurants. We've discovered that each participating hospital has an approval process for food delivery. If you have a restaurant that would like to participate in The Meal Bridge, please send your contact information to the email below and we will add you to the approval list. There are no favorites here. We want to help as many people as possible, but this is a grassroots effort, and like everyone else during this trying time, we're doing our best.


Restaurants, please click here
for important meal prep information.

A note to theTwin Cities Hospitals:

If your staff would like to receive donated restaurant meals from big-hearted Twin Cities citizens, please send the contact information for your Administrator and we will start the process. Once your Hospital gives approval, we will identify participating restaurants in your area and include them in the Meal Bridge program.


A bit about The Meal Bridge

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, The Meal Bridge was started

by an Atlanta family to help people working in the restaurant and healthcare fields. Fortunately, the idea has been well received beyond Atlanta.
We are happy to welcome the Twin Cities as the next cities to join the effort.
