Our mission is simple: Support our local healthcare and hospital heroes who are working in wartime-like conditions and support our local restaurants who are really hurting during this period!
We started this campaign to rally around the tireless ICU and Emergency front line workers who put themselves at risk daily during this Covid-19 Crisis. In speaking with people in the medical world they are working around the clock fighting for the lives of the ones we love. We want to give back to them with daily meals that are both nutrient-rich but also delicious from our favourite local restaurants that are struggling to keep their own business running during this unprecedented time in history.
Now more than ever before, it is crucial we all come together as a community to get through this difficult period. By supporting us you are purchasing meals for the frontline workers and also giving a chance to businesses ensuring they will be able to stay open, so when we do get through this together so we can all enjoy the places we love again.
Our goal is to feed 200+ meals daily to heathcare workers across Metro Vancouver. Here are a list of hospitals and facilities we are currently delivering to:
Vancouver General Hospital
St. Pauls Hospital
Lynn Valley Care Centre
George Pearson Centre
Richmond General Hospital
Lions Gate Hospital
Royal Columbian Hospital
Mount Saint Joseph Hospital
B.C. Women’s Hospital
B.C. Children’s Hospital
REACH Community Health Centre
Blusson Spinal Cord Centre
Burnaby Covid Testing Site (Boundary & 46th)
Chartwell Carlton Care Center
Honoria Covid Testing Site (W.33rd Parking Lot)
Surrey Memorial Hospital
Due to the growing list of facilities and hospitals we are reaching we have decided to increase our fundraising goal. Thank you so much for the continued support! The funds donated will be withdrew into or personal account of Christoph Barrow and used to cover the cost for each vendor.
How It Works
- 100% of the funds will be used to purchase meals from local participating businesses at a discounted rate
- For every $50 donated we will be able to produce 10 meals under our Feed the Frontline Program

In case you wanted to know more about the team behind this it was started by Christoph Barrow and Michael Tran who run Pacific Poke and supported by our friend Andrea Ng at Glo Media.
We want to give a HUGE thank you to all of our front-line clinicians and responders working to keep us all healthy and safe. And to our friends in the restaurant industry, this is an unprecedented and brutal time for them.
Let's come together to support the heroes on the frontline and our local businesses as well. Fell free to reach out to us anytime at [email redacted].
Lastly, we encouraged all donors, clinicians and restaurants to use the hashtag #FTFLCanada and #FeedTheFrontlineCanada to track and promote the program.
