SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – The Utah House of Representatives is partnering with the Utah Restaurant Association to thank those working on the front lines during the coronavirus crisis.  

Staff of the Utah House and community partners have launched UHEAL (Utah Healthcare Appreciation Lunches), an online fundraiser to feed health care employees throughout the state.

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we stand united and willing to offer our appreciation to those sacrificing so much to keep us healthy and safe — our healthcare workers,” states the fundraiser’s GoFundMe page.

All proceeds collected will go directly to paying for lunches for health care employees, and lunches will be provided by local businesses affected by the pandemic.
