Dustin Poirier of the UFC calls on charity to feed the hospital staff in the middle of COVID-19


Former UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier continues to use his platform for the good of his community.

This time, Poirier and his charity, The Good Fight Foundation, care for front-line medical workers during the coronavirus pandemic in his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana.

Poirier and the non-profit organization announced the plan social media, in collaboration with Deanos Pizza, to provide 1,000 meals to medical staff on Easter Sunday.

“The Good Fight Foundation will team up with Deanos Pizza and donate 1,000 meals to the staff of COVID-19 front-line hospital in Lafayette, LA (Easter Sunday) and throughout the next week”, indicates the press release. “I wish you all a happy Easter. “

Earlier this week, Poirier spoke to MMA Junkie about the implementation of this plan. He said the goal was to provide meal assistance to all employees in his community.

“There are three major hospitals here in Lafayette,” said Poirier. “We want to feed every employee – doctors, nurses – in each hospital.”

Pear tree playing a role in acts of charity is nothing new. For his past battles, he used The Good Fight Foundation as a platform to achieve all kinds of goals. Poirier auctioned off his combat gear to help build water walls for an orphanage in Uganda, create a playground for children with special needs in his community, and more.

The Good Fight Foundation is open to donations on TheGoodFightGroup.com.

Poirier (25-6 MMA, 17-5 UFC) was scheduled to face Dan Hooker on the UFC card on May 16. However, all events are put on hold indefinitely as the sports world continues to be hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, so it remains to be seen when it returns to the octagon.
