TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Some local restaurants are feeding workers at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo as those health care professionals face a fight with the coronavirus.
On Monday, people at the hospital unloaded 50 meals from Sweet Peppers Deli for some of those health care professionals.
Another 50 meals would come later in the day for another shift.
"So many of the staff — whether they are doctors, nurses, environmental services — cannot leave the specified floors to go and eat anywhere, much less leave the premises," said Jessica Vaughan with NMMC Volunteer Services.
Other restaurants providing meals this week include Chick-fil-A and the Eat With Us group.
