Feed The People
On April 8, 2020, we rolled out our #FeedThePeople program. In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, we saw many people in our neighborhood losing their jobs and struggling to feed their families. Suddenly, our fun family restaurant became a critical community spot, where families could pick up dinner without going far from home.
A few generous customers reached out and asked if they purchased one of our Family Pack meals, if we would donate them to anyone in need. As soon as put out the call, the extent of the need in the community became apparent, and so did the generosity of the community at large.
Since April 8, we connected hundreds of people in our community with donated meals, given by our customers, including:
Donated meals to The Salvation Army of St. Louis
Sack lunch donations to school children going without necessary school lunches
Weekly lunch deliveries to medical first responders at SLU Hospital
Over 100 donated meals to truckers who were struggling to get food on the road during the quarantine
Individual donations to families struggling with job loss, illness, and domestic instability
