A group of Boulder community members on Monday donated $200,000 to help keep a handful of restaurants running while making meals for medical workers. The organizers of Feed the Frontlines Boulder hope to double their initial investment, raising $400,000 in order to provide two months of meals for healthcare providers. They also have created a template for others to follow their lead in cities across Colorado. In Denver, the restaurant group behind Tap & Burger, Señor Bear, Mister Oso, Bar Dough, Morin and Ash’Kara launched the Nancy Fund to help feed more than 300 members of their staff daily and continue providing many of them with healthcare throughout the shutdown. Named after a customer who donated the first $14,000, the Nancy Fund has now raised more than $55,000. At a downtown Denver sandwich and wine shop, Leven Deli, customers who order carryout from a walkup window can also choose to donate meals to first responders.
