Ordering takeout from Thunderdome restaurants will not only help local businesses and workers, but also help feed the city's homeless.
Thunderdome Restaurant Group, the Cincinnati-based hospitality group known for The Eagle, Bakersfield, Pepp & Dolores, Currito and other area restaurants, is partnering with City Gospel Mission for the month of February.
The proceeds will be totaled at the end of the period and be used to deliver a hot meal to City Gospel Mission shelter guests in early March, according to a press release. Customers who order online will also be able to donate a meal.
“We have felt so incredibly fortunate this past year to receive the love and support of our community during these difficult times,” Joe Lanni, Thunderdome Restaurant Group co-founder, said in a press release. “We really wanted to find a way to give back to our community by doing what we do best, feeding people.”
The meal will be provided by Pepp & Dolores and will include spaghetti pomodoro, a green salad with pink peppercorn vinaigrette and Allez bakery sourdough bread.
Thunderdome customers can order online and donate from any Cincinnati-area restaurant location.
“Due to the pandemic, catering business is down 90 percent,” said Thunderdome co-founder John Lanni. “We felt like this was perfect way to keep our catering staff employed and help our community at the same time.”
To donate, visit any Thunderdome Restaurant Group online ordering portal on each restaurant’s respective website, select the “Donate a Meal,” and check out.
