About


We Got This Seattle is a Seattle-based organization that supports frontline workers with meals. Our dual mission is to support both our hard-working frontline workers (e.g., nurses, doctors, firefighters, police officers, environmental health services staff, public health officers) and our local businesses during times of crisis.

Covid-19 has hit Seattle hard and our city needs us. Restaurants are struggling to stay afloat. At the same time, frontline workers are risking their lives and working long hours to take care of us. We have an opportunity to support both groups by purchasing meals from restaurants and delivering them to frontline workers in and around the city.

We rely 100% on generous support from the community to fund our initiative and provide much-needed support for our frontline workers and restaurants. Thank you to the many individuals, organizations, and local businesses that have made this possible!

To date, Ellen and a few volunteers have: 
  • Fed more than 70,000 frontline workers
  • Delivered hot meals, drinks and snacks to 175+ sites (e.g., UW Virology, UW Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center, Harborview, YouthCare, Solid Ground, AMR Ambulance Company, Seattle Fire Department, Airlift NW, Kaiser Permanente, Overlake Bellevue, Neighborcare Health Clinics)
  • Ordered from 150+ restaurants, many minority owned
Keep the momentum going by contributing to the cause. We Got This Seattle!

Special thanks to Mellina White, Justin Gough, Suzanne Bigelow, Melinda Branscomb, Leslie Mitchell, Rahul Shendure, Andrew and Stacy Wright, Benjamin Lees, and Cory Slater Scancella, who have played key roles in making this happen.
