A Hartsdale restaurant owner is providing meals to those on the front line while also helping other restaurant owners.
Robyn Matarazzo's Front Line Fund is doing its part to help the community.
"We raise money through Facebook and Instagram, and started using restaurants throughout the county and in Connecticut and New Jersey to send out pizzas and food to hospitals and police and fire departments to bring happiness during this time," she says. 

Matarazzo's own restaurant, Villaggio Italiano Cafe is still open for carryout, but has taken a big financial hit - losing more than 80% of its employees due to layoffs because of the coronavirus epidemic.
Matarazzo says she vows to keep fighting.

"As long as we can do it, we'll continue. It's important to spread positivity and bring happiness to others as much as we can," she says.
