Hundreds of Doylestown Health associates enjoyed a special lunch with live music on July 2 on the Doylestown Hospital campus.
The event was made possible through the support of several area businesses and musicians whose gestures help lift the spirit of these dedicated healthcare workers.
The community continues to respond to the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic in thoughtful and charitable ways to support Doylestown Health.
Nick and Adrienne Andersch are the owners of MeatWagon BBQ, which operates a restaurant and catering business in Hatfield and a food truck that serves Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
Adrienne is an MRI technologist at a nearby hospital, and the couple served Adrienne’s coworkers lunch and dinner early on during the COVID-19 crisis. Nick was born at Doylestown Hospital, and as a health care worker, Adrienne knows how much of a treat it is to receive such support from the community.
They decided to bring their food truck to Doylestown Health to show appreciation to staff and volunteers (who have just recently begun to return to the hospital) for their hard work with a free lunch.
In addition to a MeatWagon BBQ pork or chicken sandwich with sides, staff were treated to bags of chocolates from Frankford Candy, which partnered with Blommer Chocolate to donate more than 150,000 milk chocolate candy bars to area hospitals. The donations were delivered to 20 local hospitals in and around Philadelphia, including Doylestown Health.
In addition, global health care company Ashfield sponsored the drinks for Thursday’s lunch.
Local musicians Keith Garner and Joey De Noble entertained with live music. The Chalfont-based duo has performed several times at Doylestown Hospital and other area hospitals in the last few months as a way to “give back” to those fighting the pandemic.
