To celebrate Peak Restaurants' 15th Anniversary, the group hosted Fundraiser Friday, from which a portion of sales were donated to local food banks.
The local McAlister's Deli franchisee donated close to $2,600 to local Food Banks. Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee received $1,421.51, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee received $542.35, and Feeding America Southwest Virginia received $635.79.
The primary function of the food banks is to secure food for the hungry. Once the food is collected—whether received by donation or purchased by the food bank—volunteers package the food and distribute it to partners in the community like churches and shelters.
For every dollar, three meals are provided for those in need.
Peak's donation will help these Feeding America affiliate members provide more than 7,700 meals for those in need, and we're grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to their vital work.
