Operation Thank You

Niddrie resident Natasha Oommen has founded the charity Frontline Meals, to show gratitude to front line workers while helping support the hospitality industry.

Their Operation Thank You campaign connects with hospitality businesses to deliver delicious and nourishing meals to the Fever, Respiratory and Emergency departments at the Northern Hospital in Epping.  Donations to Frontline Meals pay the hospitality business and food delivery costs.
