How to Send Food to Chicago-area Hospital Workers
From pie to ramen to arepas, there are plenty of local options to send to those on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak.
While many of us hunker down at home and live off what we’ve got in the pantry, Chicago-area hospital workers continue to do the essential work of treating patients with COVID-19. And while cheering for doctors and nurses from our balconies is a heartwarming gesture, many Chicagoans have gone so far as setting up meal trains for local hospital staff.
Here’s how to send some food to hospital workers in the Chicago area — while supporting hard-hit local restaurants at the same time.
Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge
L. WOODS TAP & PINE LODGE: The kind of place that considers a barbecue brisket burger to be a “light dinner” is exactly the kind of place that will hit the protein sweet spot after a long day’s work. They also offer a variety of chopped salads and sides to round out a meal of barbecue ribs or chicken. Delivery via DoorDash, pick-up by calling 847-677-3350
Northwestern Medical Center
BEATRIX: For crispy kale salads, mushroom and quinoa burgers, and other healthyish items, Beatrix has you covered (but yes, you can still add on those amazing chocolate chip cookies). Delivery and carry out available via Caviar, Grubhub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash.
