The meals came with a personal message to hospital workers via Twitter. “You guys are heroes so the least I could do is send you some lunch,” Lizzo said in a video. “I hope you guys enjoy the food … and I hope that you feel loved and appreciated because you really truly are.”
A worker at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta tweeted a photo of a receipt from Lizzo’s delivery and wrote: “We are so thankful.”
In a video for those workers, Lizzo said: “The least I could do is send y’all some lunch, just to show you a token of my appreciation. So, I hope you enjoy the meal – it’s on me – and I hope it puts a smile on your face today because you deserve it.”
