Have YOU called the Lunch Lady?

510-351-7654

Mmmmmmm...Mmmmmmm....MMMmmmmmmm. Good Ol' Mash pahtaytoes.
"The soup of the day is going to be beef noodle. The vegetable of the day is steamed cauliflower," says the sweet Southern voice. There's nothing too unusual about that. What is unusual is what comes next, her singing a song in her charming off-tune way with made-up lyrics, and the fact that up to 50,000 people a month from all over the country call a phone number just to hear her talk about the lunch menu at a place they will never eat. Oh, and to wish them a beautiful day.

It all started as a way to cheer up employees worried about impending layoffs at the United States. - Airserv

Haven't called it lately. She retired from the "official lunch place" years ago...I was one of those 50,000 folks a month calling in to get a little southern sunshine.
