In addition to our Wonderful Charities we support each year, we also focus on the hunger crisis in our communities.
Feeding Families on Fridays, Friendly Express and Lewis and Raulerson have donated over $229,000 to local food banks, pantries and soup kitchens thru their Feeding Families on Friday initiative. Every Friday when a customer buys ANY Size fountain drink or coffee, we will donate 10 cent for each cup sold. 100% of the money collected has been distributed to Food Pantries in the same community as the store that collected it. In 2013 we decided to address a growing concern that affected all of our communities, and after speaking to all our employees we discovered the overwhelming need was to help feed people in our communities, hence Feeding Families on Friday was conceived. This program was designed not to be a short term fund raising effort but has become a way of life.
