Waitr Donates $10,000 To Second Harvest Food BankJan 19, 2022 01:04PM ● By Press Release
Lafayette, LA – Lafayette-based Waitr presents the Second Harvest Food Bank with a $10,000 donation this morning at the Lafayette food bank. The donation comes as part of the delivery app’s recent Holiday Food Drive.
In addition to collecting food donations at local restaurants, Waitr also matched a portion of any monetary donation received from customers that gave when using the app during the month-long drive.
“With food prices at an all-time high, the need for food assistance is increasing to levels rarely seen before. Many families are seeking emergency food assistance for the first time,” Ana Moresi, Food Sourcing Specialist for Second Harvest Food Bank of Acadiana. “Monetary gifts like this are the most efficient way to help families struggling to put food on the table as high prices at the grocery store are likely to continue for months to come. We are so grateful for this gift, and we thank Waitr from the bottom of our heart for continuing to support those most in need within our community.”
During Waitr’s Holiday Food Drive, donations were collected at Twins Burgers & Sweets; Handy Stop Market & Café; Deano’s Pizza; Luna Bar and Grill; and NuNu’s Fresh Market, all located right here in the area. Waitr dropped off the donations Christmas Week to Second Harvest.
