Local Food Blogger Cristyle Egitto (aka @eatpalmbeach) saw the toll COVID-19 has taken across the country, the restaurant/food/service industry. As a food blogger she had to do something about it – so she set up a Go Fund Me to help out.
“This fundraiser will help place catering orders at local PB county restaurants and food-related businesses to drive business while social distancing is in effect. My goal is to provide food to our nurses, doctors and first responders in the area as well as families in need. It’s a win/win. Drive business to our local business owners and their staff while showing thanks to those assisting during this difficult time and helping those in need.”
In the last few weeks they have made a huge impact & raised over $10,000.
They delivered over $2500 in gift cards to local restaurants including Dune Dog, Hogsnappers, Perk, Angelo’s and Raw Juce to the staff of Jupiter Medical Center.
