PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) – Thursday morning, OSF Healthcare in Peoria received 23 pallets of nutritious snacks for frontline workers. These workers include nurses, doctors, janitors, and food service staff.

The donation came from a natural foods company, Purely Elizabeth, via Frontline Impact Project, which directs quality-of-life goods to frontline workers nationwide. The granola bars and clusters were split amongst 14 OSF Healthcare locations throughout Illinois and the U-P of Michigan.

OSF Healthcare Spokesperson Shelli Dankoff said snacks like these are ideal for busy days and the team is extremely grateful especially as days get longer with COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

“You’ve been on your feet, often very long hours of the day and you may not get a very long break to go grab a bite of lunch. Just to sit down and have that bar and I think the other part of it is… knowing somebody is thinking about you,” said Dankoff.
