While most people living on the east coast were preparing for Hurricane Irene and staying inside, Delivered Meals Managers James Corrigan and Gregory Godfroy and their teams were preparing to deliver emergency meals to the Red Cross for people in need. With the help of many other team members, Jim and Greg were ready to take action and drive a truck with more than 5,000 meals 103 miles from Whitsons Elizabeth Culinary Center on Saturday August 27th. Notwithstanding the hazardous weather, Jim and Greg delivered the meals to the Red Cross, who then distributed the meals to shelters serving local residents in need. The Bronx and Islandia Culinary Centers also worked diligently in anticipation of the hurricane preparing the emergency meals. In the end, the team provided about 70,000 meals over two weeks. Those served really enjoyed the food and the boxed lunches Whitsons provided. All team members acted swiftly and were able to help many people during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.
