MILWAUKEE — Verizon is expanding its "Food for Frontline Workers" program to nurses, doctors and other medical staff in Milwaukee.

Verizon will be partnering with Milwaukee restaurants, Amilinda, Merriment Social, Big Daddy's BBQ & Soul Food and Cavas to deliver over 2,500 meals to frontline workers throughout the holiday season.

“First responders and healthcare workers have been putting themselves on the frontlines throughout the pandemic, prioritizing the safety and care of others,” said CEO of Verizon Busines Tami Erwin. "Our ‘Food for Frontline Workers’ program is one way for us to show gratitude to these heroes and support local restaurants that have been affected by the pandemic.”

This food program is a continuation of Verizon's initiative that kicked off in April, where they delivered more than150,00 meals to frontline workers across the U.S.
