App helps local families get free food


20 Waco families are getting free food delivered on Tuesday night. 

This comes after the food delivery app Waitr collected around $17,000 in donations from its customers. 

As part of their first annual “Share Thanksgiving”, Waitr delivers meals prepared by local restaurants. 

People had the chance to nominate a family in need for the free food delivery. The chosen families then got the chance to choose what they wanted from local restaurants like La Fiesta and Souper Salad!

“They were able to go on the app and place their own order for what they wanted for their entire family, and we just covered that, charged, and the restaurants provided extra goodies as well on their own,” says Waitr photographer Alex Sanchez.

Waitr is delivering over 2,000 free hot meals to less fortunate families across the Gulf States this week.
