Loving Lunches RVA

As the Coronavirus sweeps across our community and affects us all, let’s SHOW SOME LOVE to the Healthcare Frontline Heroes! As a community, let’s let them know they are loved and appreciated. Let’s tell them we appreciate their sacrifice in these unprecedented times.





Loving Lunches RVA exists to thank and support medical and support staff involved in the diagnosis and care of patients with COVID-19 while simultaneously boosting the local food service economy.

We partner with local food establishments to purchase boxed lunches and then deliver them to medical professionals on the front lines.

If you are a medical facility providing hands-on testing and/or care of COVID-19 patients and wish to inquire about receiving lunches, please contact LovingLunchesRVA@RAMdocs.org.

If you are a restaurant and wish to participate by providing boxed lunches, contact the Retail Merchants Association, Katie Whittington, kwhittington@retailmerchants.com.

If you have any other questions , please contact LovingLunchesRVA@RAMdocs.org.


The week of June 1 will mark a great accomplishment for Loving Lunches RVA and the community that supports it.

We will deliver our 10,000th meal!

DONATIONS: Join us to make a difference!


100% of your donation is tax deductible. 100% of publicly-contributed funds go to purchasing boxed lunches. (No goods or services were received in exchange for this contribution.)

Did you know...? The new Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security Act (CARES ACT) suspended Adjusted Gross Income Limits - for 2020, it suspends current AGI limits for charitable deductions for cash gifts made by individuals and businesses. This provision excludes gifts into donor-advised funds.

  • Individuals: Total charitable contributions can be deducted up to 100% of a donor's adjusted gross income (had been up to 60%). Even if you do not itemize, $300 of charitable contributions may be deducted on your 2020 tax return.
  • Corporations: Charitable contributions can be deducted up to 25% of taxable income (had been up to 10%).

As always, consult with your tax advisor to understand how these changes apply to your tax situation.

Donations are accepted through the PayPal link below. Save your receipt from PayPal for your tax purposes.
