Customers pay for a suspended meal, which could be a soup ($10.95) or a super burrito ($9.95). We place the receipt on our visual management board and when someone comes in for a suspended meal, we take it from the board.
Anyone! No questions asked.
Customers asked us to start the initiative because we have a small percentage of homeless students within our school district (FCUSD). The group that formed this has a desire that these kids come in and eat a hot meal anytime.
It doesn't. We honor the programs that are currently in place to help the homeless and those experiencing financial difficulties.
We will print a copy of the receipt for every meal and place it on our visual management board. This allows our employees to see what is available for customers when they come in for a suspended meal. When a meal is given out, we remove it from our visual management board.
