LEGENDS JOINS COVID-19 EFFORTS AT SLEEP TRAIN ARENA ALTERNATE CARE FACILITY
In partnership with the Sacramento Kings, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and other State Agencies, Legends has joined the efforts at the Sleep Train Arena alternate care facility, a field hospital set up at the former basketball venue to support the growing medical needs of the COVID-19 crisis. The Kings, who own the property, have made the site available to the California Department of Public Health to serve as a surge hospital to support COVID-19 patient overflow for the Sacramento region.
As part of the effort, Legends is managing the food production of healthy meals for more than 500 staff and patients. All food will be created at Golden 1 Center and delivered to a specified “clean zone” at the facility. In addition, 90 percent of the ingredients served will be sourced from within 150 miles of the arena and support regional farmers in line with Golden 1 Center’s Food & Sustainability Charter.
