Feed Our Heroes
We've donated $20,000 and partnered with local restaurants to feed our heroes and their families.

Let's to thank them for keeping us safe.

There are thousands of heroes in our communities that are risking their lives to keep us safe. To thank our first responders, such as healthcare workers, police officers and firefighters, we have partnered with locally owned restaurants and donated $20,000 to provide take-out meals for heroes and their families.

If you are one of our heroes, please call the restaurant in your area (details are provided below) and order a meal for yourself and up to 5 family members. If you’re someone who wants to purchase a meal for a hero in your area, please donate through our GoFundMe page – 100% of the fees will be covered by National Mutual Benefit. When you donate, please leave a comment to let us know which community you would like your donation to support. 

UPDATE (4/22/20): The funds NMB donated to feed our heroes have already been used up at all of the local restaurants we partnered with! Help us raise another $20,000 to help support local restaurants and thank local heroes. Click on the button below to make your donation!
