Colorado is finally getting  a breath of fresh air after some restrictions are being lifted, but the restaurant industry is still being hit hard and are to remain closed, only allowing delivery and takeout. Despite 75% of restaurant employees being laid off in Colorado, many restaurants are continuing to stay open to provide meals for those on the frontline.

Nonprofit groups are coming together to try to provide for both communities: restaurants and healthcare workers. For example. Feed the Frontlines Boulder pays restaurants to provide meals to healthcare workers, a win win for restaurants that are struggling and for healthcare workers that are working overtime.

Since the launch of Feed the Frontlines a little under a month ago, nine local restaurants have joined, and the foundation has raised over $500,000 to continue feeding first responders and support local restaurants.
