United Way, Jimmy Johns Partner for FeedWith5

FeedWith5 is a partnership between Jimmy John’s Valdosta, Relish, Just Love Coffee Cafe, Big Nick’s on Baytree, Jessie’s Restaurant and Catering, and Greater Valdosta United Way that will allow purchasing of food items via a text-to-give method. The initiatives will provide funding for the restaurants, while giving meals to healthcare workers and local agencies. The United Way is collecting donations of at least $5 that will go to the purchase of meals from one of the restaurants. The delivery and food will be of no cost to the healthcare employees. The idea is to help restaurants that may be losing sales, while simultaneously displaying appreciation to the workers serving the community. Businesses are losing revenue due to less foot traffic and this initiative will help them pay bills. Donors will be entered into a drawing for $10 gift cards from the five participating restaurants. Separate from FeedWith5, Jimmy John’s offers $5 boxes to health care workers that include sandwiches, chips and cookies. Checks are payable to Greater Valdosta United Way; note Feed5 in the memo. Checks can also be sent to 1609 N. Patterson St., Valdosta, Ga. 31602.
