Knoxville, TN (March 6, 2018) — To celebrate opening its doors in the Fountain City community earlier this year, McAlister's Deli held an Opening Week Fundraiser, donating a percentage of sales from the week to a local food pantry.
The result of Fountain City’s Opening Week Fundraiser was a $1,200 donation to FISH Hospitality Pantries, a local organization that provides food to more than 8,000 families every month.
Recognizing a poverty problem in its area, FISH asks what more can be done to help ensure that everyone gets enough to eat. This question motivates its three core aims:
FISH Pantries are 100% volunteer run and rely on donations. Each pantry has a thrift store, whose proceeds go directly to the food bank.
Peak Restaurants’ donation will help the people at FISH Hospitality Pantries feed 240 families of four—960 people—for three days.
