On March 28-29, the Pasadena Center Operating Company (PCOC) along with Centerplate, the exclusive food and beverage provider for the Pasadena Convention Center and Pasadena Civic Auditorium, prepared, delivered and distributed 3,100 healthy meals for students of Pasadena Unified School District. The call to action to support local schools and the community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) will continue over the next three weekends (April 4-5, 11-12, and 18-19) throughout the Pasadena area at seven distribution sites.
The PCOC has 20 staff members who have volunteered to transport, set up and distribute the meals each Saturday and Sunday. The healthy meals include a sandwich, fruit, bag of cookies, and the option of milk or juice.
“The PCOC is happy to help in this time of crisis,” says Michael Ross, CEO of the PCOC. “It has been a pleasure to work with the City of Pasadena, Rose Bowl Operating Company and our partners at Centerplate to coordinate and set the program in motion quickly. I am most proud of the number of PCOC staff that have stepped up to volunteer as this time of need.”
