Police Appreciation Lunch

We are challenging you to join us to BE THE CHANGE you want to see in the world.

Saturday, May 15th 2021 is National Police Officer Memorial Day and
we are hosting a Food Truck Event.

The purpose of the event is to show our gratitude and appreciation
BY PROVIDING A FREE LUNCH TO EVERY POLICE OFFICER IN KNOX COUNTY AND THEIR FAMILY.    
The families of fallen officers will be in attendance as well.

The first event we hosted last year was a smashing success with well
over 800 attendees. The event in 2020 was made possible by a generous
donation from the Pannell Family and Chefs Workshop who managed  all logistics.

The event in 2021 is going to be even better with your help! This year the Pannell family and Chefs Workshop has 
partnered with Knoxville Pays it Forward, a local grassroots charity so even after this event  they can continue to
help  families in need including but not limited to law enforcement.


For 2021,  We have invited police officers from Knox County, The City of Knoxville,
 and UT Knoxville, In order to foster relationships between the police officers and our community.


We want the 2021 event to be even better by providing a complimentary
meal to the kids and staff of
The Boys and Girls Club
Big Brothers & Big Sisters
The Emerald Youth Foundation
and Make a Wish Foundation
This will help At Risk youth build a rapport and relationship with our officers.



The Pannell family has generously agreed to MATCH YOUR DONATION
up to the $25,000 we need to make this happen.

So join us and be the change.
