When the coronavirus pandemic started impacting lives across Martin County in mid-March, community organizations jumped to help residents in need. To help feed the families most greatly impacted by the health crisis, EVO Italian, the Tequesta-based eatery, partnered with an anonymous donor to prepare and deliver 120 meals to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County locations each day since March 25. Chef Erik Petersen and his team oversee the preparation and delivery of the meals to the facilities.
The meals feed families of four and include entrée options like spaghetti and meatballs and chicken marsala, as well as accompaniments like salad, fruit, and dessert. They have been delivered to Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County facilities in Palm City, Port Salerno, Indiantown, and Hobe Sound, and will continued to be delivered until “normal” life resumes.
Meal distributions are hosted by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County locations from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily. In addition, EVO Italian has an active donation portal to assist restaurant staff, text message food preparation alerts, and is open for touchless curbside takeout and delivery.
