The program allows people to purchase meals from local restaurants to be delivered to the workers. All monetary donations go to support local restaurants and feed healthcare workers.
The meals on Wednesday were provided by chef Ashley Christensen's restaurant group, Panciuto, Trophy Brewing and Capital Club 16.
"Wee know that our healthcare workers need to know they are appreciated right now. They are doing hard work every single day," NC Healthcare Foundation Strategy and Program Development Officer Jai Kumar said. "We had this idea to partner with local restaurants and provide meals to healthcare workers. We thought it was a win-win situation.
The statewide fund is initially focusing on communities hit the hardest by the coronavirus, according to program's website.
