Duluth's Red Lobster thanks local health workers by donating meals

Another business is making sure our frontline workers are fed and nourished to take on COVID-19.

The Duluth Red Lobster donated meals to St. Luke's. This is through the Napa Seafood Foundation and Seafood for Heroes project. 

The program helps feed frontline health workers across the country, but it means a lot to be able to do it here.

"You know we just are so grateful that we can be a part of donating to people working so hard on the front line," said Ashley Hawkinson, culinary manager at Duluth's Red Lobster. "Not only working more hours than they usually do, they're risking their lives being right there and working so hard. So we are so grateful that we were able to help provide a little lunch to show our recognition."

St. Luke's workers got some pretty tasty seafood: shrimp scampi, shrimp linguine Alfredo, and wood-fired chicken for those who prefer poultry.
