Brightwater NWA Medical Meals Fund

Brightwater and the NWACC Foundation have recently joined forces with Ropeswing Hospitality Group, Tyson Foods and local farms and purveyors to provide healthy meals to medical teams at hospitals across Northwest Arkansas. 

The collaboration, led by Ropeswing, provides hundreds of meals a week to frontline hospital workers and is looking to expand the number of hospitals it will serve. 

By joining this relief network and offering its kitchen facilities, Brightwater and Ropeswing aim to help in providing healthcare workers with free nutritious meals so they are better equipped to take care of community members during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The logistics of the meal preparation start with multiple workstations set up in Brightwater and Ropeswing’s kitchens, with specific care taken to follow the social distancing guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Once the meals are prepared, they are delivered by Summit Aviation Bentonville.  

The relief network hopes to prepare a minimum of 100 free meals a day and is seeking monetary donations to the NWA Medical Meals Fund to offset the cost of purchasing additional produce, a necessity in preparation of the essential meals. 

Your donations will help sustain the medical meals initiative and support our local farms:
