Graham Media Group-owned WJXT Jacksonville, Fla., WJXT launched "Food4Frontline," a community-wide effort to help both frontline workers and local restaurants affected by COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve been telling the stories of doctors, nurses, EMT workers, and other first responders who are so busy caring for others they don’t have time to think about eating,” said VP and GM Bob Ellis. “This is our opportunity to coordinate a meaningful effort to take care of them.
