Ann Arbor catering company serves 8,000 meals to restaurant workers, first responders
ANN ARBOR Sheldon Alexander opened Foodies Catering nearly a year ago after working for years in the local restaurant industry. Like many in the service industry, Alexanders business was immediately impacted by the sudden wave of cancellations of events and engagements. I was a server, all of our staff worked in the restaurant industry, he said. What began as a free meal service for fellow restaurant industry workers quickly began to serve members of the Ann Arbor fire and police departments, postal workers, bus drivers and nurses. As for the meal service he never anticipated leading, he has no regrets.
