Servco Thanks Staff For 95 Years of Service with Eat-the-Street Celebration

Ever eaten a plate of food in a moving vehicle? It’s hard, isn’t it? But you know what’s easy? A moving vehicle serving you a plate of food! Servco employees didn't have to bring their leftovers or make lunch plans last Friday, October 17, because Servco brought a food truck (or tent) to all locations statewide. The food trucks and tents served 873 employees on Oahu and another 154 employees participated in the Eat the Street Day receiving either gift cards or a catered lunch at their office, for a total of 1,027 employees.
