RawJce,a South Florida-basedrestaurant that offers organic cold-pressedjuices, smoothies, acai bowls, and other organic foods, has teamed up withHouse of Athletefounded byNFL veteran All-Pro receiver Brandon Marshall, to support frontline healthcare heroes in South Florida throughNourish and Recover the Frontlines South Florida Fundduring the COVID-19 crisis.

House of Athlete and Raw Jcee goal is simple: raise enough money to purchase and donate at least 30,000 nourishing, revitalizing Raw Jce meals to South Floridas healthcare workers. To kick off the fundraising efforts, the Raw Jce and House of Athletehave each donated $5,000.

Donations are tax deductible and ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of funds will go toward providing meals. Additionally, anyone who contributes will receive a 25-cent credit in the Raw Jce app for every dollar donated. (Learn more about the Raw Jce apphere.) Credit will be applied at the end of the fundraising period.

It all started with Tricia Krefetz, owner ofClick. Capture. Create. Photography in Deerfield Beach,

who, after speaking with some local superheroes at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, realized the need for healthy, nourishing food, and support from the community. Tricia contacted Raw Jce and partnered with them to provide 50 meals to Boca Regional healthcare workers and 75 meals to Boca Hospital workers. After working with Tricia, Raw Jce knew it had to get more involved and reached out to Brandon Marshall in an effort to provide more resources to South Floridas healthcare providers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Raw Jces mission has always been focused on supporting our universe in its journey to live a healthy lifestyle, says Raw Jce co-founder Jeff Levine. As we navigate the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, our team came together to think of ways we could support our local communitys healthcare heroesand what better way than to deliver healthy and nutritious meals as a thank you for their tireless work and sacrifice during these trying times.

Marshall added: "We still have two to three months ahead of us in this fight if we're lucky. We simply cannot afford to fail at taking care of our healthcare professionals. We feel that if we can have a positive impact on the lives of those we need the most right now, we will have done something to help in the fight. House of Athlete is partnering with local hospitals to provide recovery rooms, proper nutritional support, and mental fitness tools to their healthcare professionals. We would like to call upon other health, nutrition, and wellness brands who can serve their communities in the same capacity. We believe that during times like these, we are always stronger together. It is our hope that we can increase our impact on the national and even global level."

Benefiting hospitals include:
