The Salvation Army To Provide Meals for Hospital Staff In Milwaukee 

MILWAUKEE - 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.
