A Table for Our Own
This idea, initiated by Ilze Neimane-Nešpora, began during the Covid-19 crisis when she encouraged her friends to bring lunches to medical staff.
The project quickly grew into an active social movement where more than 116 500 warm meals were delivered to medical professionals.
We are truly happy about this achievement!
Project’s goal – to support hard-working medical workers during the Covid-19 crisis by delivering warm meals to them every day.
When the pandemic began (from the 18th of March until the 9th of June 2020) this project was active for 84 days during which 63 290 meals were provided, and 207 750 Eur in donations were received. At the first stage of this project, 36 Latvian catering companies who were on mandatory downtime participated, while several Latvian food producers and distributors donated groceries that were used for preparing meals. Our volunteers took an active part in delivering warm meals to doctors and other medical professionals – paramedics, emergency medical teams and medical staff in mobile tents. In total, we received support and donations from around 5000 private individuals and 200 companies, while 23 companies donated their products/groceries.
When the second wave of Covid-19 reached us, we continued our project.
From November 2nd, 2020 until May 30th, 2021 We received 186 239 Eur from our contributors and delivered 53 211 meals to medical workers.
