Erin Zerth ‘03 and Erin Guth started the Chicago Area COVID-19 Front Line Hero Meal Trains program.

The online system sets up times for meals to be delivered to hospitals. Strict rules on delivery and packaging made the two women enlist help from local restaurants.

Donors give money, which helps those shops pump out orders and feed first responders on the front lines.
