If you ordered takeout or delivery from The Bellevue Collection’s 17 participating restaurants from March 20 to May 5, they donated two meals to Bellevue LifeSpring.
That added up to 56,650 meals to help families in need due to COVID-19.
“As the COVID-19 crisis hit the Bellevue area in March and schools closed, we had to quickly respond to the emergency situation, but our resources to provide food were nearly exhausted,” said Executive Director of Bellevue LifeSpring, Jennifer Fischer. “The support of community partners like The Bellevue Collection is critical in ensuring children in our community don’t go hungry during such a difficult time.”
The donation from The Bellevue Collection helped provide grocery store food vouchers for more than 2,800 children during school closures.
“At the start of the pandemic, we knew we needed to do our part as a community leader and wanted to not only support our restaurants that couldn’t offer in-restaurant dining due to government mandates but also give back to our neighbors,” said VP of Marketing for The Bellevue Collection, Jennifer Leavitt. “That’s when we created the ‘Do Good with Delivery’ program, and after an overwhelming response, we are so proud that we could make such a difference.”
