Several Los Angeles restaurants have found a way to stay in business while supporting healthcare workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis.

Help Feed the Frontline LA is raising money to provide two healthy meals a day to nearly 450 workers at six Southern California hospitals, including UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai.

The organization has partnered with World Central Kitchen, the non-profit known for serving up meals during disasters.

"They're in the trenches in this thing and anything I can do to help them, I'm going to do. I can't provide ventilators or masks but I can provide a meal so I jumped at the chance," said chef Wes Whitsell.

So far, Help Feed the Frontline LA has raised about $145,000 through its GoFundMe page, but says the goal is $3 million.

The group plans to feed the healthcare workers for a minimum of four weeks.
