Printed on one of the tubs of spaghetti was “Thank you frontline caregivers,” while another had “Mom” written on a heart.

“Our #HealthcareHeroes ‘lost themselves’ in the delicious Mom’s Spaghetti donated by Detroit’s very own, @eminem. Thank you for providing a special meal for our team members! 🍝,” the organization wrote.

The phrase “mom’s spaghetti” comes from Eminem’s 2002 Oscar-winning song “Lose Yourself”: “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy/there’s vomit on his sweater already — mom’s spaghetti,” he rapped in the movie 8 Mile.

Inspired by the lyrics, Eminem, 47, launched a pop-up eatery called Mom’s Spaghetti at the Coachella Music Festival in 2018.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the stand served spaghetti made from a local commissary kitchen and featured menu items like take-out spaghetti ($9), spaghetti with meatballs ($12), and a spaghetti sandwich ($11).
