Global hospitality company sbe has been taking incredible action in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following their recent employee give back program, sbe continued their efforts to support frontline workers and last week teamed up with Lincoln to deliver 1,000 meals in total to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles and New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center.
The meals, prepared at sbe ghost kitchen outposts of the team’s staple burger concept, Umami Burger, and delivery-only concept, Sam’s Crispy Chicken, were donated by Lincoln and on behalf of their clients and network as a way to show appreciation to frontline medical workers during these uncertain and trying times. Each meal included a personal note from one of Lincoln’s many clients or sbe team members, offering words of reassurance and thanks for their dedication in keeping the country safe.
The initiative is part of an ongoing relationship between sbe and Lincoln that offers sbe’s hotel guests access to Lincoln Black Label Navigators and Continentals at sbe properties: SLS Beverly Hills, Mondrian Los Angeles, SLS Brickell, SLS Lux Brickell, SLS South Beach, Shore Club, Delano South Beach, Hyde Hotel in Miami, Hudson Hotel and Mondrian Park Avenue in New York.
Deliveries also went out to Beverly Hills Police Department and Beverly Hills Fire Dept. Station 1 in honor of National Police Week.
