MERIDIAN, Idaho — One school in Meridian became a drive-through restaurant Tuesday. The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) allowed it's medical students to drive by and pick up a free lunch.

Faculty and staff lined the campus building lot, holding signs of support and handing out Chick-fil-A sandwiches to students who came by in their vehicles. Since classes have been held remotely, it has been a while since teachers and students have seen each other.

"They're excited to see us. We're excited to see them," said Thomas Mohr, Dean and Chief Academic Officer at ICOM. "It's really nice to be able to show them our love and support even though they're studying from home."

Employees maintained social distancing and work face masks and gloves to hand out the lunches.
