MRC Partners with Frontline Food Trucks

Madison Realty Capital announced that it will partner with Frontline Food Trucks to support the numerous healthcare worker heroes at Richmond University Medical Center on Staten Island fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by providing food and beverages free of charge. Beginning Monday May 4th, a special food truck owned by famous Staten Island native, chef and Food Network star Dom Tesoriero will be located outside the medical facility.

Due to COVID-19, many hospitals are in very short supply of food and beverage products because cafeterias and cafes are closed and minimal nearby stores are open from which health care workers can quickly buy food in between shifts. In response, the New York Food Truck Association (NYFTA) created Frontline Food Trucks, a COVID-19 relief program that will distribute tens of thousands of free servings of coffee, nutritional snacks, and meals every day to the frontline medical professionals across hospitals in NYC via members’ food trucks. 

“MRC is proud to do our part in supporting these brave health care professionals fighting the COVID-19 crisis by sponsoring Frontline Food Trucks,” said Josh Zegen, Co-Founder and Managing Principal of MRC. “The hospital workers at Richmond University Medical Center are putting their lives on the line every day caring for patients battling the coronavirus. We’re grateful to support their heroic efforts by providing free food and drinks that will hopefully give some much-needed daily relief.”
