Christiana Care staff, volunteers celebrate annual holiday feast

Each year during the holiday season, Christiana Care shows appreciation to employees, staff and volunteers by serving a feast in the cafeterias. This year was no exception, as the Food & Nutrition Services team flexed its culinary muscles again, serving 7,509 meals on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

“Thanks to the wonderful volunteers and our awesome cafeteria and production staff, we were able to continue our extraordinary custom of providing this special meal,” said Debbie Learn Alchon, MS, RD, corporate director, Food and Nutrition Services. “Without the effort and holiday cheer demonstrated by those who gave their time and jovial spirit to step in to serve our employee guests, we would be unable to continue this holiday tradition. And we mustn’t forget to say thanks to the wonderful Environmental Services staff who helped manage all the waste areas. Thank you to all who participated!”

The West End Cafe served more than 5,800 meals including dinners
The West End Cafe at Christiana Hospital served more than 5,800 meals during the annual celebration.

There was plenty of holiday cheer, festive smiles, great food, and wonderful service provided by our FNS staff and the dedicated volunteers that greeted, passed, served and dipped and sang holiday melodies too.
