Pink Sub and FabScout Entertainment teamed up last week to start giving away prepared meals to service workers who have recently lost their job.
“It was a truly heartwarming thing to see people that needed food, get food,” said Howard Andrew, owner of FabScout. “I think more people need to reach out and help, and realize that Wilton Manors and the gay community is a community and people need to watch out for other people and not just themselves.”
The next two giveaways will be at 6 p.m. in front of 2201 Wilton Drive (Zig Zag Building) on Wednesday and in front of the Manor on Friday. Next week it will take place Tuesday and Friday, locations to be announced.
During this time of crisis Dawn Holloway wanted to help in some way so she turned to the thing she knows best — feeding people.
“One thing I can do is feed people like I’ve always done,” said Holloway, the owner of Pink Sub. “We are preparing meals for anyone that is in the service industry. They have waited on all of us. Put up with our shit. It’s time to take care of them. This was not their choice to not be able to work.”
Holloway said some of her suppliers have donated vegetables, fruits and salad to the cause.
“The community has always supported me and I wanna cook for them,” Holloway continued. “We are not asking for anything in return other than please come get a meal and enjoy.”
The first giveaway on Thursday was so successful they immediately planned a second one Saturday that Oakland Park commissioner Jane Bolin sponsored.
