WISCONSIN  — Lowlands Group announced Friday that they will be giving away 1,000 meals to healthcare workers this Christmas.

The meals are a part of the “Lowlands On the Go” program which provides to-go meals in the form of Snackuterie™ Boxes and Beverage Bundles.

These meal packages are available to the public and can be purchased here. There are various types of boxes featuring different items, so there's bound to be something for everyone.

With the launch of this new program, Lowlands has decided to donate 1,000 of the Snackuterie™ Boxes to healthcare workers free of charge. Lowlands said the full value of the donation is $35,000.

“Our front line healthcare workers have been tirelessly battling the pandemic and as the months grow darker and more drawn out, we want them to know their hard work is appreciated, and they haven’t been forgotten,” said Eric Wagner, Lowlands Group CEO. “We hope to bring some comfort and joy to their day this holiday season.”

These healthcare workers will also receive access to viewing a virtual holiday performance from UPAF. Free streaming includes performances such as Milwaukee Rep’s Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol featuring Lee Ernst, Milwaukee Ballet’s The Nutcracker: Short and Sweet, and First Stage’s Christmas Town Comes to First Stage.

Healthcare workers can sign up to receive one of the thousand boxes here beginning Friday.
