MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Three restaurants on Dauphin Island are working with BP PLC to feed oil spill cleanup workers.
Barnacle Bill's, Lighthouse Bakery and Common Loon Cafe began serving meals Monday.
A BP spokesman says they reached the agreement last week with BP's food contractor on the island to begin preparing between 150 and 200 lunches a day, seven days a week.
The three restaurants are calling themselves the "Beach Lunch Team."
Lighthouse Bakery's Mary E.S. Scarcliff says the restaurants will take turns, with each restaurant handling orders two days a week.
Bill Lindley, owner of Barnacle Bill's, says the deal is feeding workers while helping create good will on the island.
