As concern around novel coronavirus grows, Sparkman Wharf's Flock and Stock, GenX Tavern and Tampa Bay Pizza Co. South Tampa are taking 10% off the bills of guests who bring in donations of dry goods, household cleaning items and non-perishables.
The discounts are effective immediately and will run for at least two weeks, according to a release.
All items will be donated the nonprofit Feeding Tampa Bay, which focuses on providing food to the hundreds of thousands of food-insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida.
That means a few bucks off of chicken sandos at Flock and Stock, slices at Tampa Bay Pizza Co., and every nostalgia eat possible (including Dunkaroos) at GenX.
"In the midst of grappling with what is impacting our country and the world, we promise to continue to do our part to stop the spread of this virus, and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Donations can be dropped at all three businesses and will be donated directly to Feeding Tampa Bay," restaurateur Dave Burton—who is an owner or co-owner of all three of the concepts—stated in a release.
The release went on to explain that the locations have taken extra cleaning measures before opening, during the day and after-hours—especially in high-traffic areas like door hands and bathrooms.
