Last Wednesday the TangoTab team joined Minnie’s Food Pantry, Food Network and Share Our Strength at the preview of the documentary, “Hunger Hits Home” at the Magnolia in Dallas. Now it is time for the premier. This Saturday (April 14) from 6-8:30pm Friday’s in Addison, TX will be hosting a viewing party to celebrate the work of local non-profit, Minnie’s Food Pantry. The documentary offers a first-hand look at the crisis of childhood hunger in America. Minnie’s Food Pantry is featured in this documentary and it shows how Cheryl “Action” Jackson (Minnie’s Founder) works to provide nutritious, free food to families that are unable to afford groceries in North Texas.
Before proceeding to read get ready, because what Friday’s has done for Minnie’s to help the fight against hunger, is amazing. The following is an excerpt from the Press Release about the upcoming event:
“Friday’s recognizes the commitment of Minnie’s team to reduce hunger in the community, and we are proud to be a partner in those efforts.” said Ricky Richardson, chief operating officer, T.G.I. Friday’s. “This party is a celebration of Minnie’s accomplishments and all the great work the organization does in the community.”
Friday’s will also be donating a truck to Minnie’s that will be used on a daily basis to pick up and distribute food to members of the community. T.G.I. Friday’s work with Minnie’s Food Pantry is part of the restaurant’s national partnership with Feeding America, which helps provide food to over 37 million Americans each year.
