Hackensack Meridian Health K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center received a donation of more than 70 meals for the families of seriously ill newborns receiving care in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. The meals were provided by Michael’s Feat, a non-profit organization that supports local families with seriously ill newborns, and meal prep delivery service Eat Clean Bro. The meals were given to families who stayed at the hospital with their newborns through Thanksgiving.
“While they may not have been home, thanks to Michael’s Feat and Eat Clean Bro, families in our NICU enjoyed a healthy meal during Thanksgiving,” said Vito Buccellato, MPA, LNHA, chief hospital executive of the academic medical center. “We are grateful for their generous donation.”
