our new friends from the give & grub food truck invited benji & i
to learn more about their organization last thursday & what an incredible one it is!
it’s truly heart wrenching knowing there are children in our country that do not know the next time they will be able to eat a meal. sitting next to benji as i write this, it pains me to think about children his age who are going through this hard reality.
fortunately, laser spine institute created a mission to help combat this epidemic & teamed up with tampa bay lightning, feeding america tampa bay & metropolitan ministries to put it into motion right here in hillsborough & pinellas county.
every meal you purchase from their gourmet food truck, they will donate a meal to a child in need.
their goal is to give over 150,000 meals this year & i know we can all help them accomplish it.
a little bit more on how they give back…every friday with the help of their partners they go to two schools & provide all of the students in the school (sometimes over 300 kids) with backpacks that include 5 meals for the weekend! some of these children will have their last meal at school on friday until monday morning! also, once a month they go to a boys & girls club & have a big blowout event with food, games & more!
it is truly incredible what they are doing to give back to our neighbors & the ability for us to help them is awesome too!
and the icing on the cake?
the food is AMAZING DELICIOUS.
here are my personal photos along with some of the images provided by give & grub.
take note: every meal is named after a lightning hockey player!
