August 21, 2020 Update and Addressing Devastating Fires

To Our Meals of Gratitude Supporters:

We want to thank each of you for so much for your amazing support. With your help, since March we have delivered loving meals and virtual hugs to nearly 15,500 frontline health care workers. These meals have been greatly appreciated, and have eased their burdens offering these heroes care and support. In addition, we have helped continue to employ restaurant workers, while supporting our local farmers, fisherman, and ranchers who supply the organic ingredients used in our meals

We are writing to let you know that we are addressing yet another current urgent need. Most of you know about the devastating fires raging in our area. Thousands are being displaced, and many are losing their homes and jobs. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates the crisis and tragedy. In partnership with World Central Kitchen, we are going to provide 200 “meals of gratitude” a day to frontline firefighters and evacuees in our area to try to help meet this need and help those who are affected.

While MOG started in support of frontline healthcare workers, we hope you will agree and support this shift. We plan to do this for at least two weeks, or as long as it is needed.

We are so grateful for your financial support. If you feel called and able to make additional tax deductible contributions, remember that you can do so at

Should you have any questions or comments, please reach out to us at

Please stay safe, and take care of yourselves.

With love,

Holly Tabor and Jesse Cool
