Eat Clean Bro, a company that delivers natural, freshly prepared meals has already donated $50,000 worth to first responders in New York and New Jersey with plans to continue helping the community amid the coronavirus crisis.

President and founder Jamie Giovinazzo told FOX News that he was greatly affected by Hurricane Sandy, and knows what it's like to be devastated by a crisis.

As of late April, Eat Clean Bro delivered 5,000 meals and 150 trays of food to locations including New York Presbyterian Hospital, the New York Police Department, the New York City Fire Department, and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center & Children's Hospital of New Jersey, among others. Giovinazzo also opened his website to local restaurants to give customers an option to buy pizza, cold cuts, or taco meal kits-- with 100 percent of the proceeds going back to the original restaurant.

Giovinazzo's no-nonsense approach to safety protocols also enabled his company to get ahead of the virus. He encouraged workers to stay home if they had any inkling of illness and told them they would still collect a paycheck during any self-quarantine. He said that at a time when other businesses were not allowing employees to wear masks, he was encouraging it.
