Slutty Vegan ATL and The Pinky Cole Foundation partnered to deliver 80 meals to healthcare providers at Northside Hospital on Monday. The restaurant also plans to reopen on April 7 for delivery orders fulfilled through UberEats.
Founder and owner Pinky Cole said the restaurant and foundation hope to provide ongoing meal support to Northside Hospital and the Grady Memorial Hospital — two leading medical centers in the Atlanta community.
“We are appreciative of our local health care providers and know that they are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of patients, staff, and families during COVID19 response,” Cole said.
Beginning April 7, the restaurant will reopen for delivery orders after closing its doors on March 24 to take a stance in the fight against COVID-19. Respecting recent social distancing measures set forth by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Governor Brian Kemp, the popular vegan eatery limited their service scope and hours.
“Your support for Slutty Vegan ATL remains overwhelming – in any other context, this wouldn’t be an issue,” Cole said. “As the city increases its guidance for social distancing, we will comply.
“Here at Slutty Vegan, we always take into consideration the safety of you (the customer), the needs of our staff, and the best interests of the community,” she added.
