Viola Davis and Cast Treat Hasbro Heroes to Lunch From Matunuck Oyster Bar
Davis and the cast of "How to Get Away with Murder" made the donation through Frontline Foods RI, an organization that pays local restaurants to make fresh meals and deliver them to healthcare workers.
Central Falls native Viola Davis is always giving back to her home state. On Wednesday, she and the cast of “How to Get Away with Murder” bought lunch for healthcare heroes at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and it just happened to come from one of the best restaurants in Rhode Island, Matunuck Oyster Bar.
Davis made the donation through Frontline Foods RI, the Rhode Island chapter of the organization that pays local restaurants that have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic to make fresh meals and deliver them to healthcare workers on the frontline. Frontline Foods uses 100 percent of the tax-deductible donations they receive from the community to benefit local restaurants. Frontline Foods has delivered over 350,000 meals to 600-plus hospitals across nearly sixty cities. Check out frontlinefoods.org to donate or get involved.
Davis posted photos from the donation to her Instagram page and challenged another television cast to do the same through the #CastItOn movement, kicked off by Kerry Washington and the “Scandal” cast. See her post here.
