Of course, she is still quite young, and I hope for her to have a long and full life doing what she loves the most. She's a really great person and deserves that.
Unfortunately, the pandemic affected a lot of jobs, and food service, in general, was at the forefront.
I'm rooting for her to get her SS.
Thanks for letting us know so that we can pray for her, and please keep us posted.
P.S. Speaking of cooks, do you know what I think is really missing these days? Cafeteria ladies in schools. Not just to serve children, but to cook the food.
When I was in grade school, a girl named Delaney's grandmother was our cafeteria's cook. She was amazing, and the food was crave=able. I still think about the grilled cheese sandwiches, a pasta dish (and I'm pasta picky), and a turkey and gravy over rice dish.
My grandmother was the cafeteria lady/cook at my moms school for a couple of years when my mom was in grade school. She was a very good cook.
I think that kids are missing out on healthy, delicious, meals without ladies who cook, as well as losing a connection to people who make food. Your neighbors do that, right? A lot of schools offer things like pre-packaged pizza and so forth in their cafeterias these days.
The reason this came to mind, was that some people have started their careers as cooks in school cafeterias. It would be great, for example, if your Dgd had that opportunity, but I don't know about schools in her area. Do they still have people there who cook? Could she get a job in one starting as a sous chef for one the cook/s?
I brought my own lunch most of the time in grade school, but when I did eat in the cafeteria, it was great. We girls had our coin for lunch, in those days, in our shoe. I can't imagine why a better solution wasn't thought of! At least no one lost their money, or had it taken. But, the person in the cafeteria taking the money...well...! I think that kids today have cards that get scanned?
