Directory of American Menus Hotlines, Vol. 1
Vol. 1: Hospitals, military bases, senior centers, churches & service organizations
A directory of over 80 active phone numbers for the best pre-recorded menu hotlines in the United States, assembled in the same place for the first time ever. Organized into geographic regions.
“Pick up your phone, and dial an extension, and hear a voice that clearly comes from a fellow human. They reel off the menu of the day: Meatball sub or Philly cheesesteak. Blackened salmon with corn and okra or a chef's salad. A side of applesauce. The menu offers choices, decisions you can make for yourself about things that make sense, a rare moment of autonomy in the confounding narrative of medical establishments and care facilities.” —from the foreword by Sara Bir, the American chef, writer, and food librarian
