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.
