BOSTON — Celtics guard Marcus Smart, on behalf of his YounGameChanger Foundation, is collaborating with several local restaurants to provide over 425 meals to frontline workers across various hospitals throughout New England.
The meals, which are being prepared and delivered by Prepped Gainz of Everett, MA, Arya Trattoria of Boston’s North End, Tallulah’s Taqueria and Nicks on Broadway in Providence, RI, and Scratch Kitchen of Newport, RI, will provide health-conscious meals to frontline workers at Boston Children’s Hospital, Tufts Floating Children’s Hospital, and Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
“I was planning several hospital visits to see some young patients and then became sick with COVID-19, myself,” said Smart. “I wanted to show my support for the essential workers who are focused on caring for their community in a time of need. Together with everyone involved, we created healthy meals to keep them going. I truly hope these small contributions help them stay strong and feel appreciated in this time of uncertainty."
The food preparation and deliveries began on Monday, April 20 and run through Friday, April 24.
