Fayetteville Free Food Delivery Snacks Force

Chris Selby, who runs Clunk’s Hungry Express Wagon food delivery business, launched the Fayetteville Free Food Delivery Snacks Force, an initiative that uses money raised from the community to purchase food from local restaurants, which is then delivered for free to people in need during the pandemic.

In addition, Clunk partnered with Big Bot Design to design the Clunk Pandemic Response tee. With each purchase, at least 50% of the gross sales will be dispersed to Maxine’s, Pinpoint and the Vault to help them make ends meet during the pandemic.

Feed the Heard

With support from the community and various partners, Leverett Lounge has been able to feed hundreds of unemployed people from bars and restaurants throughout Fayetteville, twice a week. The Feed the Heard initiative started when Leverett Lounge temporarily closed on March 16. They had a walk-in full of food, and the stark realization of how financially fragile restaurant workers are. They started by feeding their crew to-go meals twice a week—but things quickly evolved into a broader community effort, with the initiative bringing on partners to feed hundreds in the industry across Fayetteville.

The community is invited to sponsor a meal for a service industry worker, starting at $10 per meal.
