Several downtown Alpharetta restaurant owners have launched programs to not only help support their businesses, but also to help feed health care workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Here are some of the restaurants that have kickstarted meal-donation programs:

  • Crave Pie Studio

    Crave Pie Studio, located at 360 Commerce St., Alpharetta, launched its Pie It Forward & Bake Someone Happy program so customers can sponsor one or more of the bakery's mini pies, and Crave Pie Studio staff will deliver the pies to those on the front lines in hospitals, clinics, police and fire departments, nursing homes and others. Pies are valued at $7.50 each and can be ordered online. As of April 20, the community has sponsored more than 830 pies for health care professionals and first responders, said Jeanine Jones, public relations manager for the Alpharetta Convention & Visitors Bureau, in an email. 678-485-7198. www.cravepie.com

  • Maple Street Biscuit Co.


    Customers can order a Hero Biscuit Box—individually or in bulk in multiples of 10—through Maple Street Biscuit Co.'s program for health care workers. Each box, priced at $10 per box, contains a Maple Street biscuit sandwich, a signature side, dessert and a bottled water. Those ordering through this program can specify who to donate the meal to in the order notes, or it can be sent to any hospital, medical facility or first responder unit. 678-381-1447. www.maplestreetbiscuits.com/alpharetta

  • Kale Me Crazy

    Kale Me Crazy's Feed the Front Line program allows customers to donate a lunch wrap to health care workers, and the restaurant will include one of its immunity shots—which features vitamins aimed at boosting the immune system—with the order. Orders can be made online, through the Kale Me Crazy app, by phone or in-person, and donations will be delivered to Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Northside Hospital Forsyth and Wellstar North Fulton Hospital. https://alpharetta.kalemecrazy.net

  • Bagel Boys Cafe

    Locally owned Bagel Boys Cafe on Haynes Bridge Road launched a program, the Feed Our Heroes program, to allow customers to send Bagel Boys' made-from-scratch bagels in multiples of 25—$25 per 25 bagels—to frontline workers in the area. Those interested in donating can call the restaurant to order or go online. 770-569-1009. www.bagelboyscafe.com
