Feeding First Responders and Keeping Doors Opened

During these trying and uncertain times, the country and the world has taken a collective pause for the betterment of our collective wellbeing. Currently, Families, seniors and the business world alike have been pushed to the brink.

At Beatstro, Bricks & Hops Beer Garden and The Bronx Drafthouse we know all to well the struggles of the working middle class, having being raised in working class families ourselves. During this crisis our commitment to our staff and the community we serve remains unwavering.

We transitioned our businesses to operate as food distribution centers in conjunction with Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen and Revolution Foods. Our staff provides much needed food to senior centers, housing developments, community centers and the homeless. These are people who by and large, cannot afford to stock their refrigerator for weeks on end, or who simply cannot risk exposing themselves to the virus to scavenge empty grocery store shelves.  

We are firm believers in the adage that to whom much is given, much is expected. Which is why with your help we plan on expanding our commitment to serve the New York City community by providing free meals to all First Respondersand at the same time keeping our 65 employees on payroll.

This pandemic has stretched the resources of law enforcement, emergency response personnel and medical professionals to the breaking point. We hope to lessen their burden by providing free meals to those who selflessly risk exposing themselves to a deadly virus to keep the weakest amongst safe. One hundred percent of all proceeds donated will go to the staffing,operations, purchasing and serving of free meals to all first responders at Beatstro, Bricks & Hops Beer Garden and The Bronx Drafthouse.

We thank you for your time and your continued support, we wish that you and your families stay healthy and safe during this trying time.

To ensure transparency, all donations collected will be managed by a non-for-profit who will provide a financial audit and donate any amount collected in excess to charities helping those affected by Covid-19.

Thank you,
Team Beatstro, Bricks & Hops Beer Garden & The Bronx Drafthouse
