Fueling the Frontline: Who We Are

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.

Current projects include:


Over 8000 chef-prepared meals delivered each week to Atlanta's healthcare workers

In Partnership with:


The Cox Foundation, 

Chef Linton Hopkins,

Tony Conway, Alice Rolls,

Emory, and  other local chefs

500 meals from local eateries delivered each week to the Piedmont Atlanta Hospital's Emergency Department

In partnership with our MD on Call Patients

With a special Thank You to 

Sara Blakely, Jesse Itzler, and

Michael Orcutt, who helped us launch this initiative

Repurposing Atlanta restaurant kitchens for community needs
