It’s easy to lose sight of just how incredible our local franchises and businesses are. Two restaurants in particular have risen to the occasion to meet the needs of thousands of at-risk youth this summer.
When a stream of cars is up ahead around lunchtime, there must be a Chick-fil-a nearby. Although the fast food revolutionaries are certainly not in wont for customers, the Grapevine Mills location has faithfully given meals for four years.
The franchise will give GRACE 1,000 chicken sandwiches as needed throughout the summer during Feed Our Kids. A heartfelt thanks to Clint Cowden and his team for their generosity!
For the second year in a row, both Euless and Southlake Which Wich locations are “spreading the love” with a donation of 1,200 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the summer months. Project PB&J is a Which Wich initiative that allows restaurants to serve in a way that reflects their local community.
The ongoing campaign gives two sandwiches away for every purchase—one sandwich abroad to children in countries facing global crisis, and the other to a local nonprofit. A special thanks to TJ Schier and his team for bringing comfort to hundreds of children!
If you’ve never been part of Feed Our Kids, this summer program is deal for churches, civic groups or businesses looking to improve internal morale and be part of giving back in a local, tangible way.
Spots fill in advance prior to the program and spots are filling up quickly. Feed Our Kids officially kicks off June 6 and runs each weekday through August 15.
Groups can choose to sponsor meals at a particular site for the day or work week. New groups will have the resources they need to get started by contacting Seasonal Programs Coordinator Lori Stevens.
