LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – It’s all about giving this time of year and for one fast-growing Little Rock food delivery service, they are doing just that.
Waitr, an app based food delivery service, is giving free meals to local families in need as part of their “Share Thanksgiving” initiative.
“We are feeding 2,000 families in need across Waitr nation,” said Tim Brown, MRSM for Waitr Inc. “We have partnered with Bobby’s Country Cookin’ to help get the families hot meals.”
Last month, the company asked its app users to donate for a “Share Thanksgiving” food-drive.
During a five-week fundraiser which allowed anyone using the Waitr app could make a donation to help feed a family in their own community during the week of Thanksgiving.
Thousands of dollars via the food delivery app was raised and participating restaurant partners matched a portion of the donations.
The response was well received by its Little Rock customers that helped raised $1,500 to give families in need a hot holiday meal.
