Feeding the Front Line

Anthony Rizzo steps up to the plate for Joe DiMaggio workers

The Family Foundation named after Chicago Cubs star (and Parkland native) Anthony Rizzo is doing its part to support health-care professionals on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rizzo’s namesake foundation delivered more than 800 meals last week to workers at medical centers here in South Florida and in Chicago.

Locally, the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation’s efforts fed health-care workers at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood. Some food was donated, but much of it was purchased in an effort to support restaurants in and around the all-star first baseman’s hometown. Participating restaurants included: Myapapaya Juicery + Kitchen, All-Star Pizza, Dyan’s Country Kitchen, and Pasquale’s Pizza Company.

“We have now served over 800 meals to Chicago and Florida hospitals, the front-line workers and the staff that have really taken on this virus,” Rizzo said. “We really appreciate all the donations everyone has given us, and I know everyone at the hospitals and the front-line workers have been appreciative.”
