Remember when I told you all about Give and Grub?
Give and Grub is still going strong and working to fight hunger in Tampa Bay. For each delicious meal they sell they give one FREE meal to a child in need in Tampa Bay.
The last time I was at Give and Grub I got to taste some of their delicious meals. But there’s two sides to this amazing organization. Give and Grub reached out to me and asked if I’d like to join them for their monthly Give Back event, where they give out the free meals to kids. Being an avid volunteer and having passion for giving back to the community I was ecstatic to be able to see first hand the other side of Give and Grub.
I met up with the Give and Grub crew at the Boy and Girl’s Club in Tampa. The truck was set up in front of the building and they had a fun photo booth set up inside. The kids all got their meal from the truck and had such fun with the photo booth.
Now that it’s summer Give and Grub’s mission is even more important. Without school kids miss out on meals they would have normally gotten at school. Give and Grub partners with Feeding America who let’s them know the centers that have kids who are most in need of meals. They then plan on doing a Give Back event at a center such as the Boys and Girls Club and they not only give the kids a free meal that day…they also give them 5 meals to take home with them to have during the week. How amazing is that?
By now you may be thinking: how can I help?? I want to be involved! It’s so simple. Visit the Give and Grub website: http://www.giveandgrub.com/, locate the truck and go buy a tasty lunch or dinner! OR even better…request the truck! Give and Grub goes to offices all the time. What better way to give your coworkers an awesome lunch resource and also give back than with the Give and Grub truck?
Thank you again to Give and Grub for letting me be a part of their Give Back event. It was a great experience and I’m so glad to see you all continuing to make great strides at striking out hunger in Tampa Bay!
