Highway Restaurant & Bar in East Hampton in partnership with The Independent is donating meals to those on the front lines of the local COVID-19 battle — EMT stations, East Hampton Village Police Department, and Southampton Hospital’s health care workers — and asking the public to join in. The restaurant has launched an initiative to “provide high-quality meals to the brave first responders that are working tirelessly to keep the Hamptons community’s loved ones safe,” a press release stated.
Those interested in helping out can purchase as many meals as they’d like at $35 each. The restaurant will issue meal vouchers for these specialists to enjoy a restaurant-quality meal anytime, with no expiration date.
Highway’s team is providing the first 50 meals to start and will continue adding meals every week. Patrons of the restaurant will be encouraged to add first responder meals to their take-out orders.
Meals can be contributed by calling 631-527-5372, by visiting www.highwayrestaurant.com, and via direct message on Instagram. Take-out and delivery is offered Thursday to Monday from 5 to 8 PM.
