Fort Worth, Texas-headquartered insurance and financial services firm, Higginbotham, is purchasing meals from local eateries that have temporarily reduced their operations to take-out and delivery due to COVID-19 mandates. The food deliveries go to those organizations working for the well-being of the community during this challenging time, the company said.
Higginbotham will continue the program, called Higginbotham Helps, on a weekly basis in its markets most effected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
In its first week starting March 27, the firm purchased meals from Michael’s Cuisine and Buffalo Brothers to serve workers at UNTHSC COVID-19 Testing and Emergency Call Centers and the City of Fort Worth’s Emergency Operations Center, where Mayor Betsy Price came to show her support.
Next week’s purchased meals will be from Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant and other local restaurants to serve workers at Texas Health Resources, Cook Children’s Hospital and staff and guests at Catholic Charities and Safe Haven of Tarrant County. Higginbotham also made monetary donations to the Tarrant Area Food Bank and the Fort Worth Food & Wine Foundation’s Restaurant Worker’s Relief Fund.
In the coming weeks, the Higginbotham Helps program will support multiple restaurants and serve a number of organizations and hundreds of community service workers.
Higginbotham, founded in 1948, now has more than 40 additional offices statewide and in Oklahoma, Georgia and California serving domestic and international customers.
