Feed the Fight BY HANNAH LEE
Julia Love first got the idea for her Feed the Fight Durham initiative from a similar grassroots
movement in Washington, D.C., but she’s putting her own stamp on it. The organization – led by Julia and local residents Lindsay Hoyle, Susan Branion, Judy May and Ann McLain – supports restaurants with dining rooms that have been shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the health care workers who are battling on the front lines. Their team has paid Durham restaurants to deliver 50 meals a day to Duke Health, Durham VA Health Care facilities and Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake, among other local health care practices. By mid-May, the team raised more than $82,000 to help fund the delivery of 5,870 meals from 51 restaurants. To donate to the cause, visit feedthefightdurham.org. 12
