(WTXL) — In a move that breaks with company tradition, 4 Rivers Smokehouse will open its Florida locations, including here in Tallahassee, on Sunday to feed people and raise money for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.
Contributions from Sunday will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a not-for-profit organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.
All the restaurant's locations, except for one in downtown Orlando, will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, to help contribute to the effort to help Bahamians recover from the natural disaster.
“As Floridians, we know all too well the destruction hurricanes can cause and it saddens us to see the devastation caused in the Bahamas by Dorian,” said John Rivers, 4 Rivers Founder/CEO. “Community is the core of our brand, so the entire 4R family is proud to contribute to relief efforts in the Bahamas by raising funds on Sept. 8 at our 4 Rivers Smokehouses and The COOP.”
The initiative includes the restaurant's location at 1817 Thomasville Road in Tallahassee. You can find the complete list of participating locations below:
