There’s a new fund in Central New York that lets you support both local hospital workers on the frontline, and restaurants that are struggling.
It’s called “An Unexpected Voyage – Covid-19 – Syracuse, NY” and was created by In My Father’s Kitchen founder John Tumino and online platform company, DIEMlife. It lets the public make donations that will pay for quality meals for local hospital workers made by local restaurants that are struggling and in need of support.
All four Syracuse hospitals are involved, and nine restaurants are participating:
- Apizza Regionale
- Dinosaur B-B-Que
- Glazed and Confused
- Kitty Hoynes
- Limp Lizard BBQ
- Original Grain
- Original Italian Pizza (SU Campus)
- XO Taco
“What ends up happening is the hospitals will order from one of those nine participating restaurants” says Tumino. “The restaurants will fulfill that order, and deliver that order to the hospital. Once your order is received by the hospital they’ll confirm that they got it and then we execute a transaction from our account at DIEMlife directly to the restaurants account so they’ll get paid right once the delivery happens.”
“It’s a win-win-win all the way around” adds Tumino.
