#GOODFOOD: FOOD THAT TASTES GOOD AND DOES GOOD IN OUR COMMUNITY
We harness the love of BBQ and camaraderie of cooking to raise money for well deserving charities. In 2018 our primary charity was Rally Pensacola, a foundation that provides financial assistance to families who have a child that is battling cancer. In 2018 we also supported Manna Food Pantry, Studer Community Institute and other local charities. Our motto is #GoodFood: food that tastes good and does good in our community.
Manna Food Pantry
Manna is a local, grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. They provide groceries directly to individuals and families in need, and they believe every person has a right to live free of hunger and to be treated with respect and dignity.
Manna operates three emergency food assistance pantries – the new main panty is located at 3030 North E Street in Pensacola – and nine specialty programs with 11 partners in the two-county area to serve our community’s most vulnerable populations.
They are passionate about what we do because they care about people. Addressing local food insecurity is the right thing to do.
