POC: Jonathan Burgess
Burgess Brothers' Operations
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Wednesday April 1, 2020
West Sacramento, CA. April 2, 2020 - The Burgess Brothers activate Avengers Hospitality at Sutter Health Park to serve public safety
While baseball season is postponed, Sutter Health Park's kitchen will get a pre-season workout feeding firefighters in the greater Sacramento region.
In partnership with Sutter Health Park, Home of the Sacramento River Cats, the Burgess Brothers are keeping their employees hard at work preparing and packaging their signature meals. After baseball season was postponed, The Burgess Brothers approached The Sacramento River Cat's leadership team and pitched the idea of putting the empty kitchen to work. “Our goal is to provide affordable, delicious and signature meals to members of public safety, their families, and our senior citizens,” said Jonathan Burgess.
The Rotary Club of Elk Grove has graciously sponsored 200 meals for the Cosumnes Fire Department’s first responders who are keeping their community safe while they battle COVID-19. Once the meals are packaged and ready for distribution, FoodJets services will transport meals to the Cosumnes fire stations in Elk Grove and Galt.
“Providing our meals to fire stations will lighten the load and encourage some of the social distancing measures. We may find a need to begin eating in shifts and spread out versus our traditional around-the-dinner table style of eating”, said Burgess.
"There have been members of public safety that have symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 and I can't think of a better way to help than sending prepared meals delivered to their families while they are getting healthy" said Burgess. In the last 48 hours we have had a number of other sponsors including Real Life Church of Natomas who have sponsored meals for each fire station in Natomas.
