Randi Lockemann(L) hands over a bag of free meals to a medical worker with SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York, the United States, April 22, 2020. After hearing from a friend working at both Kings County Hospital and SUNY Downstate Medical Center that the medical staff there were too busy treating COVID-19 patients to have lunch, Randi Lockemann, owner of two Brooklyn-based German beer-gardens, decided to provide free meals to the medics. Through a donation website, Lockemann raised enough funds to provide 60 meals a day for medics for 4 weeks, then started cooking and delivering meals together with her staff on April 13. "Timing is the most difficult thing, having 60 hot meals ready by a certain time requires exact planning," she said. (Photos: Xinhua)
