INDIANAPOLIS — City Barbeque has raised more than $120,000 through it's "Healthcare Heroes" campaign that has asked guests to donate $5 with every order.
With the money raised at all 50 of its locations, City BBQ has been able to deliver over 24,000 hot box lunches to health care workers on the front lines.
About 2,200 of those meals were delivered to Indy's Eskenazi Hospital.
“We have always prioritized helping our communities, and our mission has never been clearer than it is right now,” Rick Mair, City Barbeque CEO, said. “We thank our guests for their huge-hearted, generous response to this campaign, and we want to keep on going to show our health care workers that we deeply appreciate their hard work in fighting this terrible virus.”
All six of the Indianapolis-area City BBQ's raised a total of $11,120.
Each one of the lunches donated included slow-smoked meat and two homemade sides.
The Columbus, Ohio founded restaurant can be found in Avon, Carmel, Fishers Greenwood, IUPUI and Whitestown.
