ASSET is highlighting the good work of businesses across the Lone Star State that are stepping up to serve their communities and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic as part of our #TXBusinessCares series. Thanks to Kerbey Lane Café for sharing its story.
Like other restaurants, Kerbey Lane Café has faced challenges during this crisis, but we wanted to find a way to give back to the community in Central Texas. We partnered with ATX Hospital Meals to provide food to healthcare workers on the frontlines of the pandemic.
As a community, we are only as strong as the caring doctors, nurses and others who put their own lives on the line to care for patients who have been infected by COVID-19. With everything they must balance during the day—from patient care to their own wellbeing—the last thing these men and women should be worried about is where they’re going to grab lunch in the middle of a shift. While we can never really thank them enough, we hope providing a good, nourishing meal gives them the opportunity to take a moment to refuel and recharge before they get back to their critical, lifesaving work.
So far we’ve done about five drops to healthcare facilities around Austin with a few more lined up in the coming weeks. These few hundred meals are our way of pitching in to do what we can during a difficult time for us all, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to do so.
