The Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel and Lodging Association, Feed the Children and Discovery Church of Yukon announced Wednesday they were teaming up to brighten the lives of unemployed hospitality workers around the metro. 

In what the organizations are calling 'Phase Two' of an Essentials Package, more than 300 non-perishable food and care packages will be given to hospitality workers in Oklahoma City who lost their jobs due to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

Each package is comprised of a 25-lb. box of food and a 12-lb. of personal essentials, according to a joint release. 

Feed the Children is asking interested hospitality workers to register on its Hospitality Essential Care Package portal in advance of picking up a package. 

The items can be picked up Wednesday between 10 a.m. and noon at Discovery Church's location at 900 East Main Street in Yukon.
