Mark Wahlberg’s burger chain do­nat­ing food to front­lin­ers

Fiji Sun - - SHOWBIZ - Mark Whal­berg.

New York: Mark Wahlberg and

Del Frisco’s Dou­ble Ea­gle Steak House have joined hands to pro­vide food to New York’s health­care work­ers and first re­spon­ders. Bos­ton-based burger chain Wahlburg­ers - run by Wahlberg brothers, Mark, Don­nie and Paul - has been ship­ping its pat­ties to the steak house in Mid­town to be cooked up, and the city’s leg­endary fire­fighter themed sports bar Bravest have been help­ing de­liver the meals.

“They wanted to hon­our the hos­pi­tal work­ers and first re­spon­ders,” Ger­ard Fitzger­ald, pres­i­dent of the Uni­formed Fire­fight­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, told Page Six.

The meal de­liv­er­ies started in Man­hat­tan last week and end in Staten Is­land Mon­day.

Wahlberg said it was nice to help cham­pion for some­one else and give them the credit they de­serve. “Not be­ing able (to have our restau­rants) fully op­er­a­tional these past sev­eral weeks has been heart­break­ing for our en­tire or­gan­i­sa­tion. But that hasn’t stopped our com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing the com­mu­ni­ties we serve how­ever we can,” Wahlberg said. -Khalee­j­times
