If you work at a hospital or are on the front lines and would like to receive a donation from Sofia please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Sofia NOLA , we aim to provide customers with an authentic, quality Italian cuisine in a family style setting. Since the initial onset of COVID19, we've provided hundreds of takeout meals to restaurant industry workers and our community. Now, we're on to something even bigger:
Sofia Serves is an initiative from Sofia NOLA to help support Doctors, Nurses, and frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19. Our goal is to provide meals free of charge for those medical professionals serving the New Orleans Community.
It’s in our DNA as New Orleanians to be together, that is why this current crisis has hit us especially hard since ‘doing our part’ means staying home. However, there are essential workers on the front lines fighting this pandemic relentlessly, and need our help.
With the hospitality and tourism industries completely shut down, small business owners are all looking for ways to stay creative and generate new business, all while keeping people employed. Sofia NOLA is looking at this as an opportunity to both serve those in need as well as provide jobs for our employees.
Our aim is to provide meals to as many hospital workers in the NOLA area as possible. We're providing small donations to individual departments at hospitals, but with your support it will allow us to ramp our efforts.
We understand that times are tight right now and are asking for any type of donation - big or small to help support our mission. 100% of the funds we raise will go towards meal supplies and ingredients, prep (including personnel time), and delivery to frontline workers. The more money we raise, the more meals we can provide for these heroes.
We cannot begin to thank you for your donation and appreciate your support.
Let's serve those that are healing us!
