Some families in Meridian will have a happy Thanksgiving, thanks to a program called “Share Thanksgiving” by the Waitr food delivery app
Waitr is making sure local families in need don’t go without a Thanksgiving meal this week by delivering free meals to Meridian families throughout this week.
“For the last 5 weeks Waitr has been taking a portion of each, like, meal we have delivered and setting them aside so that we can purchase meals for families in need and that’s what we’re doing. We’re actually going to be delivering these meals free of charge, everything. To the families that are in need, that way if they weren’t able to afford a Thanksgiving meal any other way, this is a way they can”, said Cody Sellers, Waitr Employee.
Employees of Waitr are excited about the opportunity to give back to the community.
“As soon as they released the opportunity to volunteer for it, I was one of the first ones. All of the lead members, we all volunteered for it, so we could be a part of, to help drive back to the community that has provided us with a job”, said Sellers.
For the Share Thanksgiving program Waitr partnered with local restaurants in Meridian for the deliveries.
