UPDATED: Distribution of the Donated Meals   

In order to comply with physical distancing requirements and to protect the health of all staff, we will not be distributing donated lunches in the lobby. This weekend we will notify the departments that will be receiving meals next week so staff can plan accordingly. Our goal is to provide the donated food to as many departments and people as possible in the coming weeks.
