While most people were watching the Super Bowl Sunday evening, Syndee Wood was getting ready to deliver a dozen pizzas to the health care staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital in Encinitas.

Since Dec. 12, the community college instructor from Encinitas has been making nightly drop-offs of free meals to feed anywhere from 40 to 80 hospital workers in the intensive care unit, emergency room, labor and delivery, pharmacy, lab, housekeeping and other departments.

Wood declines to take credit, simply saying the food is a thank-you gift from the community.
