The Rotary Club of Redwood City donated $2,000 to the Redwood City-San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce’s Feeding Heroes program and pledged to continue donating $1,000 to the program while the shelter-in-place order is in effect, the organization announced this week.

The initial donation by the Rotary Club will directly provide meals for departments at Redwood City’s Kaiser Permanente Hospital, and the meals will be provided by Arguello Catering. The Chamber matched the donation with its own contribution of $2,000. The Rotary Club future contributions will benefit staff at Kaiser Permanente in Redwood City and Sequoia Hospital.

The Feeding Heroes program funds meals for essential service workers in the community, and meals are prepared and delivered by participating Chamber restaurants. Business members can choose to donate $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or $2,000. A $500 sponsorship funds 25-30 meals.

Recipients of the program include: Fair Oaks Community Center, Kainos, Kaiser Permanente Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Recology San Mateo County, Redwood City Public Words, Redwood City Fire Department, Redwood City Police Department, San Mateo Co. Emergency Operations Center, Samaritian House, SamTrans, Sequoia Hospital, and Stanford Medical Center.
