Love the frozen dumplings from Dumpling City on El Camino. Same prices and quality as before the shelter-in-place. Just boil and add some veggies for a complete meal.

Could you make a list of restaurants who are accepting donations to prepare food for front line workers and needy low income residents.

The ones I know about and support are Coupa and Sprout Cafe on University.

You can check their websites.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
