Corporations: Help feed people in need

We face a mounting humanitarian crisis in Mountain View. Our seniors, disabled and homeless are facing hunger now at a rapidly increasing rate. Many are no longer working and have limited or no incomes. Many seniors are isolated at home and afraid to go shopping.

Our local nonprofits, such as Hope’s Corner and Community Services Agency, are working overtime trying to meet the surge in demand. Unfortunately, they are limited in their ability to acquire food and prepare and distribute hot meals.

Letter to the Editor, keeping restaurants afloat

Do your part to keep restaurants afloat

In response to the coronavirus threat, many of us are self-isolating or practicing social distancing, which is essentially the same thing.

Among other things, that means we aren’t eating out as much as we normally would. This is placing an enormous strain on the restaurant industry. I was at Aldo Los Altos picking up a to-go order Friday, March 13, at about 7 p.m. On a typical Friday the place would have been bustling. But there was only one table occupied, and only one other to-go order on the counter besides mine. Obviously, this is not sustainable.
