Bridges Catering is very excited about our community initiated ICUeats program to show appreciation to ICU workers and let them know how much we value their continued efforts working tirelessly for nearly two years.

ICUeats is a program that connects you with ICU workers to share your gratitude by purchasing a meal for them. Each meal is $15.00 and will support the wellbeing of ICU workers in a time that they have supported so many.  With each meal purchased we will include your own personal expression of gratitude to share with ICU workers. 

We are proud to announce that we have delivered more than 600 meals purchased by individuals, small businesses and corporations in our community to ICU workers at the Sturgeon, Misericordia and Grey Nuns Hospitals.

Our next goal is to deliver nearly 2,100 meals to ICU workers at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and also the University of Alberta Hospital, however, we require your support to be able to accomplish this ambitious goal.  We need Edmonton to rise up to this challenge that originated in Calgary that raised over 3,700 meals to support their ICU Workers. It’s our turn Edmonton, we can do this!

Bridges Catering will continue to provide updates on the progression of ICUeats program through our website and social media so please check back to see how the meals are being appreciated.  All Expressions of Gratitude from the community are shared below.

We are honored to coordinate this program and help feed the universal expression of gratitude to our amazing ICU workers in our community. 

Because you care ICUeats.

""When a driver ran a red light and hit me so hard my truck rolled, the first on the scene was an off duty nurse, on her way to work. There was not a hint of fear or exhaustion in her behaviour. She simply responded and calmly took care of us as if it was her only task in the world. The same can be said of the paramedics, police and fire department. They were just there for us, with nothing to imply that they were completely and constantly overwhelmed. Later, I would feel a strange, subtle guilt for drawing such critical resources. Luckily, everyone was ok (ish). But what about that nurse? What about you? Are you ok? You just show up every day while the world burns. Flames lit every day by willful ignorance. And you, you just stomp out the flame in front of you. Every day.
Please know that we know. We know that it weighs on you. We know that even you question how you find the will and strength to carry on. We know that too much is being asked of you. Yet, you carry on. You carry on while we, we stand by and watch in amazement and awe.
My wife and I weep with gratitude for your relentless and selfless service to our society, to humanity, to any who call. We weep with gratitude and understand that we cannot even fully understand the sacrifice you make. Every day.
And all we can offer is a thank you. And a meal.
Thank you. We Love you."

"Thank you so much for saving my life in May. We are so grateful for everything you do"
