Lunch Hugs

The Mat-Su Health Foundation wants to thank those who’ve been working tirelessly to support local residents during the pandemic. Because we’re social distancing and can’t hug them, we decided to send them lunch instead! Every other week, we send a “Lunch Hug” to a different organization to show our appreciation for the incredible work they do. This also gives us an opportunity to support local catering companies in the community.
Have a Mat-Su organization you’d like to nominate to receive a Lunch Hug? Email us at!
