Looking for some good news this Friday? Take this in: A Toronto cafe and its customers picked-up the bill for frontline worker meals this week.

Cafe Landwer called for its customers to support Mount Sinai Hospital staff on Wednesday, requesting the purchases of packages that would translate to different meal deliveries.

The restaurants made the plea in an Instagram post, and said that for every $1 donated by customers, they would match with $2.

Customers had the option of selecting from three packages — two for the cost of $100, but with values of $204 and $215, and one for the cost of $50, but with a value of $108.

Meal packs included schnitzel, rice, shawarma, couscous, falafel, burgers, fries, ravioli, Mediterranean salads, and more.

The day after the restaurant made the request, they delivered 30 meals to staff at Mount Sinai.

And they’re not done yet.
