JAX Feed The Need in OC!

INSPIRED & FIRED UP TO HELP “FEED THE NEED!”
                                                                                         
Newport Beach, CA
Thirty-year local restaurant owner, Jack Jasper, is fired up
and firing back on the Covid-19! In re-opening his March 17 th
shuttered Newport Beach restaurant Campus JAX, Jack’s
top priorities in coming back were safety and how best to
utilize his venue to help his community meet the challenges
of this Covid-19 crisis. In April that search led him to create
an entirely new restaurant model in an effort to repurpose
his kitchen to provide meals for those most at risk… front
line caregivers, the elderly, and the homeless. A need that is
expected to only grow and if met can play a critical role in
reducing the spread of the infection, related crime, and
support the front line workers and caregivers.
Within a week of closing for the ‘shelter in place flattening of
the curve’, JAX immediately jumped ahead and changed it’s
regular Supper Club live entertainment schedule into weekly
remote Live Streaming Shows offering a much needed
break from the news and Netflix for the homebound. Music
truly is “Food for the Soul” but there was an even bigger
need out there that needed immediate help…feeding the
hungry and supporting the front line caregivers.
“JAX FEED THE NEED IN OC” was born!

 “FEED THE NEED” PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
 
● Upon reopening the first orders made from the kitchen
were JAX specialty Char Grilled Cheeseburgers and Fries

hand delivered to 40 frontline caregivers at a local
elderly care facility.
 
● The following week Jack personally funded, made, and
delivered #250 meals to Mary’s Kitchen for the homeless.
 
● Within a matter of minutes after a social media asking for
sponsors and donations to keep meals coming to help
FEED THE NEED Jack had his first responder! An entire
lunch was sponsored for #75 homeless women through the
local women’s shelter WisePlace.org The sponsor was
acknowledged on Facebook and emails with a combined
reach of over 30k to Campus JAX
and JACKshrimp restaurant fans. 
 
● Inspired by the response and the incredible feeling giving
back brings, Jack is lauching “JAX FEED THE NEED”
GoFundMe to allow for any sized donations big or small,
while still seeking full or part sponsorships directly.  Full
corporate or individual sponsors can choose where their
donations go and get the added benefit of great advertising
in the process. For more information about being a full
sponsor please contact Jack directly,  but any and
all donations are so greatly appreciated and could literally
be life changing!
 
Everybody wins with #JAXfeedtheneed! Front liners and
caregivers get much needed support, the homeless get
nourishment which helps keep our entire community safer,
restaurant workers get employed, a local restaurant
business stays operational while repurposing its hours and
staff to provide this much needed service, and donors get to

make an immediate direct impact on their community! The
added bonus is it feels really really good!!
 
PLEASE DONATE NOW AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN
SOMEONE’S LIFE AND YOURS!! 
All funds received will be used solely for the
preparation and delivery of meals to Feed The Need!
