Lunches on Lawyers plays a vital role in ensuring that our medical professionals are receiving proper nutrition to fuel their minds and bodies for the important work they are doing in the battle against COVID-19.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) April 27, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to upend the world, many individuals and businesses are finding ways to step up and support the essential workers on the frontlines. Personal injury law firms TorkLaw and Feher Law, APC announce they have teamed up to launch Lunches on Lawyers, a community-focused effort to feed the doctors, nurses, first responders and medical professionals who are battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Launched in April, Lunches on Lawyers identifies hospitals throughout Southern California impacted by COVID-19, aligns with mom and pop restaurants that have experienced a decline in business due to shelter-in-place orders and delivers meals to the medical workers. In many instances, these healthcare workers don’t have access to proper meals as hospital cafeterias operate on limited schedules, if at all, vending machines are empty and hospital shifts are so long and tiresome that cooking a meal at the end of the day is the last thing they want to do.
“As plaintiff lawyers and human beings, it is our duty to give back to the community and Lunches on Lawyers is just a small token of our appreciation to the dedicated doctors, nurses and support staff in the hundreds of hospitals, clinics, and care facilities that are putting in countless hard and thankless hours to fight this common enemy,” said Reza Torkzadeh, Managing Partner of TorkLaw. “I can’t think of a better way to make a meaningful contribution to our community at this time and we are thankful to our staff, industry colleagues, local business partners and others who are rallying behind this effort to support these heroes.”
To date, Lunches on Lawyers has delivered more than 450 meals to 12 hospitals throughout Los Angeles County, Orange County and the Inland Empire while enlisting more than eight local restaurant partners to supply meals. The initiative has gained the attention of others in the legal community who have sponsored meals through Lunches on Lawyers. Sponsors to date include Sachs Law, APC, Mandell Trial Lawyers, CASEpeer, Duque Law, Petrov Law Firm and Rawlins Law APC.
“Lunches on Lawyers plays a vital role in ensuring that our medical professionals are receiving proper nutrition to fuel their minds and bodies for the important work they are doing. By delivering a nourishing meal to them, we can relieve some of the burden and allow them to focus on what they do best,” said Tom Feher, Founder of Feher Law, APC. “While this pandemic has created much uncertainty on a global scale, one thing is certain and that is our community comes together in remarkable ways during times of need. We have truly been blown away by the eagerness of the legal community to get involved in our effort and sponsor meals for our fearless healthcare workers,” added Feher.
