WYTHEVILLE, Va. – Food for Frontline has now delivered more than 2,000 meals to essential workers across our area, from Raphine to Danville.
On Friday, 10 News was there as 180 lunches were dropped off at the Wythe County Community Hospital from a special local business.
Hospital employees lined up with carts, ready for one of Food for Frontline’s largest orders.
The owners of Flourz, a local deli, popped open the trunk and started unloading the sandwiches and wraps for every person working at the hospital.
Flourz owners, Dewey Newhouse and Jennifer Miller, along with their team, started working at 5 a.m. Friday morning to prepare the large order.
“Everybody's just really pulled together to make this be successful, because we do appreciate what they do for us,” said Miller.
Miller knows firsthand just how deserving the hospital employees are of a lunch to say thank for their hard work.
She herself retired from Wythe County Community Hospital, trading in her scrubs for a ‘Support local business’ t-shirt.
