We're excited to announce we've added Covid-19 caregivers at Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers to those at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin receiving our weekly healthy, handmade and free meals. We were touched by this lovely "thank you" card from the team at Froedert. Info on how you can help keep this initiative going is in the About section of our Facebook page.
Kathy Papineau runs a catering company and a community kitchen in the Riverwest neighborhood. After the pandemic began, she teamed up with her friend, attorney Jay Urban, to create a grassroots organization called Healthy Eats for Milwaukee’s Hospital Heroes.
Urban provided an initial $5,000 seed investment to purchase organic food and the hospital-required individual packaging. Meanwhile, Kathy developed a menu of nutrient-dense foods, “brain food” as she calls it, to deliver to those nurses working on the front lines.
For the the last two weeks, the pair have served 120 meals each week to Froedtert. They’re also planning to cater an additional meal — brunch on Easter Sunday.
Learn more about their partnership in the interview above. You can also support the initiative on the group’s Paypal page.
"I believe anyone can eat healthy," she says. "And every day I work towards that."
The meals, which will be delivered at noon and 4:30 p.m. include Rushing Waters wild caught salmon burgers on a bed of organic quinoa with lemon, vegetables and avocado mousse; organic curry carrot soup, Outpost juice with an optional ginger shot; a silver dollar roll from Breadsmith and an energy ball comprised of organic dates, nuts and coconut.
The meals, packaged in reuseable mason jars, are the the product of an initiative called Healthy Eats for Milwaukee's Hospital Heroes, an initiative which aims to provide 120 freshly prepared meals once a week to frontline workers. The initiative also aims to support local food businesses which have seen a drop-off in business due to a reduction in sales from restaurant customers.
The initiative is a collaboration between Milwaukee attorney Jay Urban, who kicked off the project with a $5,000 matching donation and Kathy Papineau, owner of MKE Localicious Catering, who prepares the meals for delivery.
Thus far, the initiative has raised a total of $10,000; but more is needed to continue doing the work they are doing.
Donations are being accepted to support the continued work of Healthy Eats for Milwaukee's Hospital Heroes. Interested parties can donate directly through PayPal.
Checks can also be made out to MKE Localicious and sent to 531 E. Keefe Ave., Milwaukee, 53212.

There were only two stages of grief for one runner when the Milwaukee Running Group shut down daily group workouts last month. For Olivia Spring first came “sadness” then came “let’s do something about it.” Olivia's idea to get herself out of the funk was to go to a map and plotted a street run that would draw one out of her favorite things -- a cat.
