NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — When John Beebe heard about #FeedtheER, he immediately jumped on board.
Pasco County lawyer Kelly Cook started the hashtag about two weeks ago. More businesses have jumped on board since then.
Heros Subs and Salads in downtown New Port Richey is one of them.
The family owned small business just launched in February. It is now feeling the impacts of COVID-19.
Now the shop is feeding dozens of healthcare worker through #FeedtheER.
"We are trying. We are doing everything we can to keep the doors open and generate business," says owners John Beebe. "But we're also doing what our mission and and our vision is and that's to take care of first responders and help out in the community."
On top of his first responder platter, you can always Pay It Forward a Heros Subs and Salads.
They always have a program where you can buy a sub for an on-duty first responder. When you buy the sub, you get a ticket. When an on-duty officer, dispatcher or firefighter comes in, they look in their box to see if there are any tickets. If there are, their sub is automatically paid for.
