Checkers is the latest restaurant taking over the Trinity Cafe kitchen in Tampa.
As part of Girl Scout and cafe volunteer Gracie Goltermann's project called Feed the Need Tampa Bay, the drive-thru concept will provide three-course meals to approximately 300 hungry and homeless patrons on Wednesday. Fixings-topped burgers and cheeseburgers, salad, fries and fried apple pie are planned for the menu.
Feed the Need kicked off near the beginning of September, when Ybor City's Columbia Restaurant served up the first service. Ten restaurants have helped the project's mission since.
"I can't wait to see the guests' faces when they realize their favorite Checkers drive-thru is at Trinity Cafe today," 17-year-old Goltermann said in a statement. "Recruiting restaurants to be a partner in Trinity Cafe's efforts is taking it to another level."
