Ivy Box monthly subscribers came through for the staff of Harlem Hospital. With proceeds from Ivy Box sales, Ivy Storehouse coordinated the delivery of delicious nourishment for the brave men and women working to save lives in the midst of this devastating pandemic.
A member of NYC Health + Hospitals, Harlem Hospital is an institution with a rich history within its community. Founded in 1887, the hospital has established itself as a leading educator of Black health professionals. Since then, its medical faculty and residency training programs have consistently included minority physicians dedicated to treating medically underserved populations.
In these trying times, the provision of meals has become extremely important for the support of frontline professionals. Hospital staff is overwhelmed, with little time for their own needs. With these meals, they can worry about one less thing while feeling supported and appreciated by the community.
In addition, the lack of personal protection equipment means that these brave caregivers are forced to spend hours in protective gear without eating. When they finally get a chance to remove their equipment, these meals provide them with much-needed nourishment.
Ivy Storehouse thanks Fieldtrip NYC for preparing and delivering the meals to Harlem Hospital. Founded in 2019 by Chef JJ Johnson, this minority-owned dining experience offers cuisine influenced by global flavors. After initially expecting to close their doors in the midst of COVID-19, Fieldtrip found a way to service the community. Using sustainable products, the restaurant creates rice bowls paired with ethically sourced vegetables and proteins to provide frontline workers with uniquely flavorful and nutritious meals.
Ivy Storehouse sincerely thanks the Ivy Box community for helping to make a difference in the lives of deserving healthcare professionals.
