Enhancing Life One Meal at a Time: Thank You Letters from our Clients


We always strive to live our mission of enhancing life one meal at a time through our words, our services and our actions each and every day. Receiving “Thank You” letters recognizing these efforts is more than we can ever ask:


Our client at SCO Sea Cliff thanks Chef Fred Hakimi for being a valuable member of their family: “June is usually a very busy month with the end of the school year. These last three weeks have been especially demanding. Last week alone we had auditors, a field day and training at our residential training center — all on the same day — and each group requested your lunch. I think you prepared over 200 sandwiches, all before noon. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated, committed and caring “King of our Kitchen.” You are the most important part of our family, supporting and providing food for the table to nourish and strengthen our youth and staff and enhancing our lives one meal at a time.”


A resident leaving Madonna Heights, thanks Chef Phil Dupuis for keeping her days bright: “Mr. Phil, I remember about a year ago; I was in the hallway in school crying. Thinking about it now, I don’t really remember what it was I was crying about, but it doesn’t matter. I was sitting on the floor and you were passing me by in the hallway. You looked at me and said, ‘I didn’t think today’s lunch was that bad. I mean, my stomach was a little bubbly, but nothing crazy.’ I started laughing, my tears and troubles forgotten. This was my first true introduction to who you were. The joke man. The one who made me laugh when the world was falling down on top of me.”
