We cannot thank our customers, communities and folks who have supported this initiative enough. This campaign has been a great demonstration on how communities hold each other up and work together during uncertain times.
Through the support of our OTTO community, we’ve provided:
Meals to 37 frontline facilities
Over 500 pizzas delivered
Over $12,000 in food and beverages
Nourishment for hundreds of frontline workers including hospital employees, community health center employees, first responders, and homeless/teen center staff to name a few

When a customer called Penguin Pizza in Boston and ordered pizzas to be delivered to frontline healthcare workers at a nearby hospital, it sparked an idea – we can support local businesses and feed critical frontline workers through one initiative.
Feeding the Frontline is a donation-based framework that supports both restaurants and frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Through purchasing gift cards or meals from participating businesses, those working tirelessly on the frontline are provided with nourishment to help fuel them through their shifts.
On April 4th, we launched a Feeding the Frontline campaign at OTTO. Here’s how it works:
Our team reaches out to various frontline facilities that are currently accepting donations within our communities
Using the contributions from our website, we create orders to fit the specific needs of each facility
Deliveries and pickups are coordinated by our team, with the safety of all parties involved as our top priority
Contributors receive an email after their donation has been put to work
We’ve had an extremely positive response from our community, and are happy to say we’ve already fulfilled several orders. The healthcare workers and first responders who have received orders could not be more appreciative.
We cannot thank our contributors enough for helping us make this possible, and promise to continue working hard to feed the frontline workers in our communities.
