Fatburger Food Truck Resumes Free Meals For Healthcare Heroes Initiative
Popular LA-based burger chain to donate an additional 10,000 meals for Los Angeles healthcare workers totaling 35,000 meals since pandemic’s beginning
Los Angeles, July 28, 2020 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (NASDAQ: FAT) is resuming its “healthcare heroes initiative” by bringing its Fatburger “Fatmobile” food truck to local hospitals to cook fresh, tasty meals for healthcare workers across the LA region.
At the height of the pandemic in April and May, the Fatmobile made stops at dozens of area hospitals serving up a total of 25,000 meals for local healthcare heroes. Now, as cases have started to rise in LA and the surrounding area, Fatburger plans to dish out an additional 10,000 meals to healthcare heroes.
“Since day one of the pandemic, we have strived to do whatever we can to help our healthcare heroes,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “With cases continuing to rise in the Los Angeles region, it only felt natural to restart our meal giveaway to show our appreciation for all that they are continuing to do.”
Each meal is a thank you to healthcare employees for their efforts over the past five months to protect the community. Fatburger will be delivering freshly cooked meals to LA’s healthcare workers this week and for the foreseeable future as a small gesture of thanks for everything they do for the city as they continue to fight on the front lines.
