Feeding frontline workers sheds employment barriers for trainees

in Community/Featured/Headline

The caterer feeding hundreds of San Mateo County employees work on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic response, is also helping to remove employment barriers for local residents.

The team at Catering Connection, a Vocational Rehabilitation Services program by the San Mateo Human Services Agency, has been hard at work producing 140 meals daily that are delivered to four County sites, including the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and Department of Corrections (DOC). Meals so far have included BBQ, fajitas, sandwiches, chicken and enchiladas.

“There are hundreds of employees who are working around the clock to monitor and coordinate the County’s response to serve our residents. It is the least we can do to feed those involved at the EOC and DOC levels,” the agency said.
