While Lambeau Field is closed as Wisconsin stays safer at home for the next several weeks, the Green Bay Packers team dining staff is continuing to work in support of critical workers in the community during this difficult time.
With local schools closed and health care systems stretched to their maximum capacity to prepare for and care for those with COVID-19, the dedicated workers in these industries need extra support. To assist, Lambeau Field team dining staff, who typically work in the team's dining room that serves players, coaches and team personnel, have been preparing and delivering meals throughout the community. The support thus far includes:
- 400 meals per week to feed employees with several local school districts who are responsible for ensuring all students have access to lunch
- 1,000 meals per week to feed staff at area healthcare facilities
- Supplying 5,000 protein bars and 3,500 protein shakes, which had been stored for player use in the future, to local public schools to help feed students in the community
- Supporting area food pantries and shelters with as many as 300 meals and a supply of non-perishable food items from Lambeau Field
The Green Bay Packers team dining staff is continuing to work in support of critical workers and students in need during this difficult time.
This effort is being led by Adam Korzun, Packers director of performance nutrition, and his team dining staff.
This assistance is being provided in addition to the team's COVID-19 Community Relief Funds totaling $1.5 million that were donated last week through Packers Give Back to assist efforts in Brown County, through the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, and the Milwaukee area. It also adds to the previous week's $30,000 donation from Packers Give Back to benefit the Brown County United Way's Emergency Response Fund for those impacted by COVID-19.
