ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Farmburguesa delivered hamburger meals to elderly and disabled residents at Melrose Towers and Morningside Manor on Tuesday thanks to a large donation from the CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors.

A $10,000 donation was given to the owners of Farmburguesa from Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors and host of “The Profit” on CNBC.

The donation is for a special food insecurity initiative called “Plating Change,” which supports local restaurants by giving them money to provide meals to people in under-served areas.

“It’s always important to give back to the community. The community is what drives us and so for us, it’s always important to give back to the community,” said Kat Pascal, the co-owner of Farmburguesa.

In total, 150 meals were delivered to Melrose Towers and 100 meals to Morningside Manor on Tuesday, Dec. 8.
