U Chartwells Recognized for service during COVID-19

ANNOUNCEMENTS

For service to the 76th Operational Command—the unit activated in Salt Lake City to coordinate and support COVID-19 response efforts across 12 western states—the University of Utah Chartwells team has been recognized.

Brigadier General Douglas Cherry, deputy commander, 76th Operational Response Command, presented a certificate of recognition to Chartwells Resident District Manager Chuck Weaver and team, at an appropriately distanced pop-up presentation.

Within 10 days of the quarantine order, the U’s Chartwells team had shifted services to provide meals seven days a week to the 60-70 service men and women at the Fort Douglas military base.  The hot meal service encompassed breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight meal. All elements of the meals were individually boxed and wrapped in the Peterson Heritage Dining Center at U campus Housing. The dining center was converted into a food production center.

The U Chartwells team provided safe meals for the service men and women by following all COVID-19 protocols (tier 1) for preparing and serving food to the public.
