MILWAUKEE — A local restaurant is doing their part in thanking front line workers who have tirelessly kept the public safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ignite the Spirit Milwaukee says while their job comes with its risks, they believe in the work they do.

Ignite the Spirit partnered with El Greco Family Restaurant , making it possible to deliver 40 meals to the families of Milwaukee firefighters who are home due to illness, injury, or quarantine.

"I think the ultimate mission is to accomplish the most good for the most amount of people in our city. This specific project not only helped make some firefighters who were stuck at home feel some love from an organization ran by their own ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ but it also put a chef in the kitchen, some delivery drivers on the street, and provided a family-owned business a way to show their gratitude for the community they also serve," said Joe Flick, president of Ignite the Spirit. "That’s a win for a lot of people during a time that we are all just craving a some human interaction and to feel like we can help each other through to the other side of this pandemic."

Thank you, Ignite the Spirit and El Greco!
