On May 21, AMCO and volunteers delivered Chinese food of love to the Inpatient Psychiatry Dept of Hennepin County Medical Center. Here is a thank-you letter from the manager Workor Bearh.
“On last week Thursday May 21, 2020 you provided lunch for our entire nursing staff working the morning shift. On behalf of our department, I want to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciations for the meals. There are many hospitals in the Twin Cities or departments in our own facility that you could have chosen but you decided to choose us, inpatient psychiatry. And for this we feel very special and appreciative. When Jing informed us about the lunch, most of our staff including some in our leadership decided to wait for the meals and postponed their lunch. Believe me, we were not disappointed because the food was not only delicious but filling as well. We really enjoyed it. But above all, what matters most is your thought and consideration to bring us, health care workers, food in this difficult times as your way of appreciating the work we do. Again accept our warmest appreciations and we want to recognize Jing Xu for coordinating the whole process.”
“Chinese Food of Love day” (May 10) is a cross-America event initiated by United Chinese Americans (UCA) as a part of the celebration of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month (May of every year). In twin cities, the event is organized by Alliance of Minnesota Chinese Organization (AMCO). With the overwhelming support from local Chinese communities and Chinese restaurants, we decided to extend to event through the month.
