SUPPORTING THE METRO ATLANTA HOSPITALITY COMMUNITY ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18
Online Event Will Bring Together Atlanta Food, Music, & Art Communities to Help Feed, Nourish, & Support Hospitality Workers in Need
ATLFAMILYMEAL, the nonprofit supporting Atlanta’s hospitality community, announces Feed the Fam – a virtual experience celebrating the Atlanta food, music, and art communities and benefitting metro Atlanta hospitality workers – on Sunday, October 18 beginning at 7pm.
Held entirely online, the fundraiser will present a lineup of programming live-streamed on the Feed the Fam website. Comprised of some of the city’s most beloved creatives and culinary talent, Feed the Fam will feature standout musical performances from local artists like Omni, Lunar Vacation, Mattiel, and more, plus dynamic cooking demos from acclaimed Atlanta chefs and bartenders featuring dishes included in the once-in-a-lifetime seven-course dinner, available for pre-order on Feed the Fam’s website and delivered on the night of the event. The menu will showcase unique dishes prepared by participating chefs like Kevin Gillespie, Virginia Willis, and Todd Richards to celebrate the Atlanta dining experience.
ATLFAMILYMEAL will kick off the online festival by pre-selling tickets to a raffle that will include one-of-a-kind items, entertainment, and experiences with all proceeds going directly to ATLFAMILYMEAL. Guests will have the opportunity to live-stream the raffle throughout the virtual festival on Feed the Fam’s website as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. With San Pellegrino as the marquee sponsor, additional sponsors include Creature Comforts, Scana Energy, and Scofflaw Brewing.
Since launching in March, ATLFAMILYMEAL has delivered more than 100,000 chef-prepared meals to hospitality workers in need from over 200 metro Atlanta restaurants, breweries, and hospitality businesses facing joblessness due to the COVID-19 crisis. Founded by Michael Lennox, CEO and Founder of Electric Hospitality (Ladybird, Golden Eagle, Muchacho), the nonprofit has created a network of chefs, restaurant owners, hospitality workers, and business/nonprofit leaders since inception to prepare and deliver meals to hospitality workers across metro Atlanta.
