In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, The Making A Difference Foundation (MADF) announces the Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank in Tacoma is now offering home delivery food services to essential healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of the crisis in Pierce County.
The MADF wants to help those who are working to help us all. Healthcare workers who sign up for home delivery through The MADF website will be added to routes to receive weekly delivery of fresh groceries to their homes from Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank for the duration of this crisis. The sign-up form can be accessed at themadf.org/healthcare-provider-home-delivery/.
The MADF and its President and Founder, Ahndrea Blue, continue to focus on the mission to make a difference in the lives of others, one person at a time, by helping them acquire the most basic human needs: food, housing, encouragement, and opportunity. As stated by Ms. Blue, “There are few people who are placing personal risk aside and doing more to protect us than healthcare workers at the forefront during this time. The MADF believes we should all do more to help these workers during this trying situation. They are working long hours in stressful conditions and we want to make it as safe and easy for these workers to access the food they and their families need. We, as a community, are in this together and it is important to support and care for one another.”
