Showing Support

Delivering food to essential workers seems to be a solid way local restaurants and businesses have been able to show support and appreciation for essential workers at area medical facilities. Volunteers from California Coast Credit Union with the help and support from the San Diego Gulls and Rockin’ Baja Lobster in Old Town delivered lunch to frontline staff at the VA San Diego Clinic in Mission Valley last Wednesday.

“Cal Coast is proud to partner with the San Diego Gulls and Rockin Baja Lobster to say thank you to our frontline healthcare workers at the VA clinics and hospitals all across San Diego County. We truly appreciate their dedication and service to our veterans and to our community, “ said Todd Lane., president and CEO of California Coast Credit Union.

Point Loma’s Ototo Sushi Co.’s restaurant also delivered 90 boxed lunches last week to the ICU department at UC San Diego Health in Hillcrest. “We’re so happy to show our support to our local hospitals and health care workers, said Hiroshi Tokairin, owner of the restaurant chain. This was the second time they delivered lunch to the healthcare workers. They had previously delivered 60 prepared boxed lunches earlier in April.
