Epstein Becker Green Launches Meal Donation Drive

Epstein Becker Green has created a campaign, called “Most Valuable Providers (MVPs) – Serving Those Who Serve Us,” to raise money for the purchase of meals from local restaurants, which will then be provided to health care workers in New York City.

“Because of Epstein Becker Green’s focus on health care and labor and employment, we understand firsthand the ways that health care providers and restaurant owners have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the residual impact on the U.S. labor market more broadly,” Ian Carleton Schaefer, a member of the firm’s employment, labor and workforce management practice, said in a statement.

With the help of its professional staff, Epstein Becker Green has created a GoFundMe page to allow the firm’s employees, clients and the public to donate.

The firm’s goal is to raise $100,000 and then use the fund to buy at least 5,000 meals from local restaurants to support frontline health care workers. To date, the firm has raised over $42,000 from more than 200 donors.
