• Ivanka Trump donated 400 meals to medics in Queens
  • She sourced the meals from a local small business
  • The First Daughter has promised to fight for small businesses

Ivanka Trump has been following in her family’s footsteps in supporting healthcare workers, who are on the frontlines in the battle against the coronavirus. She recently donated 400 meals to medics in Queens, which were sourced from a local small business.

Anthony & Son Panini Shoppe in East Williamsburg is a local eatery that offers sandwiches with interesting names like “The God Father,” which is an Italian combo that has fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, salami, pepperoni, prosciutto, capocollo and soppressata. Donald Trump’s daughter chose the small business to deliver 400 meals to medics working at Elmhurst Medical Center.

Queens is one of the places that has been hit the hardest by the coronavirus and the healthcare workers have been fighting to contain the spread of the disease. A source from Anthony & Son told Page Six that Ivanka chose a range of three-foot-long sandwiches to donate to the medics to show her support. One of the sandwiches that she chose was “The Patriot,” which has bologna, roast beef, turkey and American cheese.

Employees of Anthony & Son have no idea how Ivanka found them. One of the workers said in a statement that they were all delighted to have delivered the food on behalf of the First Daughter to the healthcare workers.

Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are on the task force that is evaluating how the economy can be safely reopened after controlling the spread of the coronavirus. The First Daughter recently held a video conference with officials in New Jersey to discuss the ongoing response to the pandemic.

This is not the first time that Ivanka has led from the front on a social issue. Back in 2018 when separation of immigrant children from their families was a hotly debated topic, the First Daughter identified Prestonwood Baptist Church as the organization that was doing good work to help the children at the border and donated $50,000 for the cause, CBN News reported.

With the pandemic causing havoc across the country, Ivanka took to Twitter to pledge that she will never stop fighting for small businesses during the challenging time. The First Daughter also said small businesses are “the heart” of the economy.
