Mary Hilbert of Mary’s Mobile Diner is on a mission to ensure the essential healthcare workers and first responders at Cooper University Hospital in Camden are supplied with fresh hot meals made to order during the recent coronavirus spike and holiday season.
Earlier in the year when the pandemic first struck, Mary was able to feed over 1,000 healthcare professionals. Once again, Mary is asking for the public’s help and is accepting donations via Venmo that will go towards hot meals for the hospital workers, EMTs, and police officers who are dealing with the latest healthcare crisis.
Mary has recruited fellow South Jersey food trucks Red’s Rolling Restaurant and Not Your Mama’s Tacos, to line up outside of Cooper’s Emergency Room to feed the tireless medical professionals who risk their own lives during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
South Jersey, much like the rest of the tri-state area and the nation, has seen surging coronavirus numbers. The rise in cases will likely increase the number of hospitalizations, which means the healthcare workers will be slammed.
The more donations they receive, the more hot meals they can serve. Donations are being accepted through the month of December and beyond to start feeding them Christmas weekend and all through the winter.
“These folks are working hard, and we want to make sure they’re taken care of during the holidays,” says Mary. “We’re happy to support these amazing people!”
