Kylie Frame, a 17-year-old resident of Mill Valley, has been delivering meals and drinks to many of Marin’s frontline workers during the Corona Virus Pandemic.

Frame, a senior at Tam High, has launched her new program ‘Feed the Frontlines Marin,’ and has raised around $50,000 to purchase the meals to feed the frontline workers. Frame is sad about how the life of the high school seniors has changed, concerning the Prom, Senior Week, and the Graduation ceremony.  But she wants to keep the big picture in mind by helping other people. This is something she hopes to continue to do even after she graduates from high school.

Working mostly on her own, Frame makes one to three deliveries on a weekday and has delivered more than 2,000 meals to the workers at the hospitals, emergency childcare pop-up centers, grocery stores, refuse and recycling centers, the San Quentin State Prison, and the Mill Valley Fire Department. She also delivered meals to Play Marin, Bayside, Martin Luther King School, People’s Inner Cities Fellowship, Marin City Community Service District, and to Performing Stars in Marin City.

Feed the Frontlines Marin is working in conjunction with Marin General and University of California San Francisco to provide meals for their staff. Through this campaign, the program will be able to support not only the local restaurants that source from local farms, but also those working tirelessly to keep people healthy and safe.

Many of the local Mill Valley restaurants that she collaborated with, such as the Shoreline Coffee Shop, Watershed, and Juice Girl, provided many of the meals to help feed many of the frontline workers, like the staff working at The Redwood Retirement Community and at the UCSF COVID-19 medical unit.

This collaboration will also support the local restaurants, and the local farms that the restaurants buy their ingredients from, such as Green Gulch bread, Star Route lettuce, Stemple Creek beef, and eggs from Wooly Egg Ranch, according to the Marinscope Community Newspaper.

“This young teen is doing amazing work! She will be supporting the frontline workers & volunteers in Marin City this coming week — the worker sat the Bayside MLK School, People’s Inner Cities Fellowship, Marin City Community Services District and Performing Stars,” Felecia Gaston wrote in Facebook.

In order to keep these deliveries going, you can donate to Feed the Frontlines Marin through www.donorbox.org/feed-the-frontlines-marin (tax-deductible) or Venmo @feedthefrontlinesmarin (not tax-deductible)
