Kindness Bandits Outreach and Lasagna Love partnered last week to feed over 100 healthcare workers at Northside Hospital Cherokee in Canton and Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta.
The Canton-based Kindness Bandits and the national lasagna nonprofit fed 50 emergency room staff at Northside Cherokee Emergency room on last Tuesday and 75 emergency room staff members at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital Wednesday, a Lasagna Love representative said.
“Missy from the Kindness Bandits Outreach messaged me (on Facebook) and said, ‘Hey, I have an idea for you guys. We’re providing lunch for emergency department workers at a couple local hospitals, would you guys be interested in partnering up?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.,’” Nicole Wiersma, a Georgia Lasagna Love chef, said in a statement. “Who is more on the forefront of everything than the doctors and the nurses and just all the hospital staff who have been out there working tirelessly for the 18 months to take care of us? This is just the perfect opportunity to just show some appreciation, just a little tiny bit of how grateful we are for everything that they do for us day in and day out.”
Lasagna Love started in April 2020 in San Diego, and now has volunteers in all 50 states.
