The community’s hearty appetite for delicious food helped generate $1,000 for Lake County School’s teachers and students, according to a press release issued by Lake County Schools
The Education Foundation of Lake County partnered with Gourmet Today to cook up the Take-Out for Teachers fundraiser where the Leesburg-caterer donated a portion of its proceeds during the week of April 26.
Customers could place orders from Gourmet Today’s delivery menu or from its daily carry-out menu. Each delivery customer received a special gift from the Education Foundation in addition to the food order.
“We sold 837 meals, resulting in the highest-grossing sales since the COVID-19 restrictions were put in place in mid-March,” Jessy Flinn, owner of Gourmet Today, said in a press release “As a small business trying to make ends meet during this time, this was a welcome boost. We are so excited to be able to share some of the return with The Education Foundation of Lake County.”
