NAPLES — Brooks Burger, a popular Naples chain with four Southwest Florida locations, is serving free meals to hospital workers and health care professionals through food trucks, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Owner Todd Brooks and his staff are setting up food trucks for four days at four different Naples Community Hospital campuses between March 26 and April 2, according to a statement. The food trucks, the release adds, will serve over 800 health care specialists during their lunch and dinner break.
"We felt that now is the time to support our community and especially the people who are at the front line of this pandemic,” Brooks says in the release. “I have so much respect for the nurses and doctors who are working tirelessly in these difficult times. I hope that this will brighten their day a little bit and show them that our community truly appreciates all they do.”
The initiative is sponsored by a private donor, Brooks Burgers and B3 Marketing. "Todd is a role model in our community and this gesture doesn't surprise me at all,” says B3 Marketing co-founder Dimitrios Settos in the statement. “As his marketing agency and PR agency in charge, we wanted to do more than just spreading the word about his donation, so we decided to become one of the sponsors helping to cover the costs.”
