Mark Wahlberg’s burger chain donating food to frontliners
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
