Who We Are
Fueling the Frontline was founded by
Ellen Frauenthal, M.D. and Dayna Gutsin, M.D.
of M.D. on Call, Inc.
We honor and share gratitude with our ER colleagues and all others on the front line, who risk their lives every day during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We support local restaurants and chefs, funding meals for the healthcare community.
We increase the use of Georgia Organic farmers' produce, as our chefs source their ingredients locally, farm to "take out."
Sharing heartfelt gratitude for our healthcare heroes, while helping to sustain our restaurants and farms.
