WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?
Your donation goes directly to the staff of the restaurant that is cooking, preparing, and delivering the meal.
IS MY DONATION TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
Food For Heroes is a registered nonprofit corporation in the state of Texas. We are a tax-exempt, registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization incorporated in the state of Texas. All donations made in connection with this project are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our EIN number is 85-0726806.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Make a tax-deductible donation on our GoFundMe Page.
100% of the donation will go to a local restaurant to pay for both the meal and delivery service.
We coordinate the meal delivery between the restaurant and the hospital. The individual meals go directly to our frontline workers!
HOW MUCH SHOULD I DONATE?
No amount is too little or too big. For context, we're aiming for one healthy meal to cost around $10; 30 meals would cost around $300. Our goal is to feed as many healthcare workers as possible.
WHICH HOSPITALS ARE YOU WORKING WITH?
Houston Methodist Sugarland
Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center
Memorial Hermann Southwest
Memorial Hermann Sugarland
Memorial Hermann Greater Heights

We will continue to expand the number of hospitals we work with as we grow.
