MILWAUKEE, WI – The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County will be providing meals to hospital associates at Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Milwaukee on Friday.
A Salvation Army canteen (mobile feeding truck) will be parked at the main entrance, 2301 N Lake Dr., from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Salvation Army employees put 400 meals together Thursday afternoon. Meals will include a sandwich, chips, cookie and water.
“We recognize that many hospital employees are working through their breaks and have limited time to stop and eat a meal,” said Major Steve Woodard, Milwaukee County Coordinator. “Our goal is to provide these meals to the workers that are leaving for the day. The hospital staff is doing such a great and critical service – we are glad to walk alongside and support them at this time.”
Friday is the only day the meals will be offered, however that may change depending on the need.
