Since April 1st, In Thyme Catered Events has been serving over 1000 meals per week to frontline workers and patients at the newly created field hospital at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. As one of the first facility conversions needed to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, many challenges had to be overcome to rapidly set up operations, provide meals and protect those who worked there. Singer is proud to have provided supplies and personal protective equipment to In Thyme in support of this initiative.
