The Thanks-Giving Foundation has launched version 2.0 of our initiative “Serving Up Gratitude”, and this time we will express gratitude to teachers. We think it is also an important element of this effort that we provide support to the restaurants and the restaurant workers that are such a vital part of our community.
We are purchasing individually packaged grab-n-go meals in minimums of 25 each, and we typically order at least two days in advance. The meals must be delivered to the location that is designated at the time of order. You of course may choose to not accept the order if you can’t manage the delivery as requested. We will pay $10 per meal (including delivery and tip), and it is up to each individual restaurant as to what to include (drinks are not required). I’m counting on our restaurant partners to provide a hearty meal that truly expresses the community’s gratitude for the important work being undertaken by our teachers. We will pay by credit card on the day of service.
It goes without saying that you must take extra measures to provide our local heroes with a well prepared, safe and healthy meal free of contaminates, etc. As previously mentioned, each meal must be individually packaged, and must include the necessary cutlery, napkins, etc. We will provide branded Serving Up Gratitude stickers to apply to each meal, and you are welcome to insert a menu promoting your restaurant. You may also want to offer your own discounts on future visits and for take-out orders. We hope that you will reach some new loyal customers as a result of your participation in the program.
We hope to have the resources to provide orders to a great many restaurants. If you would like to join us in expressing gratitude to teachers during this COVID-19 pandemic, please provide the requested information in the form below. While we cannot be sure that we will be able to purchase meals from all restaurants that enroll in the program, we will do our best to distribute the business.
Thanks, and please stay well!
