Feeding the Front-Line

Program Honors Workers, Keeps Restaurants in Business

Dorchester Chamber CEO Bill Christopher and restaurant owner Chris Agharabi teamed up with the Talbot County Chamber and Mid Shore Community Foundation to organize Feed the Front Line MES. Based on similar programs across the country, it ensures the front-line workers of the pandemic are being fed and restaurant owners are staying in business.

As Christopher told WMDT News, “It’s proved that the community can work together, and we can work across county lines.”

Agharabi, who owns Ava’s Pizzeria and Theo’s in both Cambridge and St. Michael’s is committed to helping front line employees – such as emergency and health care workers – and fellow restaurant owners – survive in the two communities he serves during the Coronavirus.
