FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

How much should I give?

Anything you can donate will be a huge help! A typical meal costs about $10 per person so a donation of $100 will feed around 10 people.


What if I want to make a large donation to you or sponsor an entire day or hospital myself?

Please reach out to us via email for large donations or sponsorships. We'd love to work with you and are more than happy to find a solution that works best.


Is my donation tax deductable?

Probably not. We needed to respond quickly during this outbreak and official nonprofit paperwork takes time and resources.

Are you a lawyer and want to help? Get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you!


Who is co-ordinating the deliveries?

We handle all of the logistics and Ultra Motorcars handles the deliveries. All you have to do is call the restaurant and donate to feed your local healthcare workers. We take care of the rest.


Why am I calling a resturant instead of just sending you money?

We are trying to be as transparent to the process as possible, particularly given other demands on our time. Managing and distributing so many small donations is a large undertaking and restaurants already have the capability of handling orders over the phone.


Okay. Can I just send you money anyway?

We strongly prefer that you call today's restaurant as the money will be given directly to that restaurant. If you miss today's cut off time and still want to donate now we've provided a Paypal link in the header. Restaurant donations via Paypal will be distributed to ensure meal delivery on days where phone donations are lower.

Please note: Paypal donations may be delayed. If you wish to donate for a particular hospital or restaurant please call that restaurant on the day listed.


Where does my money go?

100% of your donated funds called into the restaurant go towards the restaurant delivering the next day's meals.

We may allocate a small portion of online donations just to cover operating costs and keep the gears turning on this thing.

We are absolutely not using donations to pay for parties or salaries.


Are you hiring?

Right now we're all volunteers only. But if you have some skills or experience that you think would be helpful and you want to get involved, please send us an email!


If you are a restaurant owner and interested in participating please reach out to us and we will get you into the rotation. Hospitals being served include St. Vincent’s Downtown and East, UAB Medical West, UAB Main, Grandview, Brookwood, and Princeton. If you are a hospital interested in being included please reach out and we will work on the logistics of getting you included as well.
