When Food Management sent out a call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes—individuals who stepped up beyond the call of duty during the first stage of the coronavirus crisis this past spring—we were swamped with responses from every sector of the onsite dining community…and even a few from outside the community! After reviewing all the submissions, we chose a dozen that we featured in our July/August print issue (the digital version can be found here.) and then in an online gallery. We followed that with a gallery of nominees from the K-12 community and the college/university community.
Featured on the following web pages are other submissions from hospital dining operations of individuals who stepped up to ensure that doctors, nurses and patients were fed during the pandemic.
The stories are substantially in the words of the respective nominators and talk about how these individuals made a difference in providing meal service to the frontline workers in the healthcare field during a traumatic and dangerous time.
