TAMPA, Fla — Come out and eat... for free!
No, seriously! There's no catch. In fact the free meals being made available on July 1 at 7th and Grove is made possible through the Grow On Us campaign geared toward to supporting local businesses.
"We're teaming up with restaurants and businesses in the hospitality sector so we can open a tab if you will and pay for the meals of those who come out to eat while also supporting a local business directly," said Jared Barr, senior VP of marketing with Grow Financial.
The Grow on Us Campaign launched in late May of 2020 and runs through August of this year. The goal is to partner with 30 local businesses to show support.
"With so much going on, people could use an opportunity to come out, eat, while socially distanced of course, and not have to worry about the cost. There's no catch and we are all about community and coming together, this is aligned with that," said Dr. Jamaris Glenn, co-founder of 7th and Grove.
On July 1, restaurant goers will have the option of selecting "Lets Stay Together" which combines mac and cheese, collard greens and two fried chicken thighs. Along with the option to eat "Rock the Boat" which features fried catfish, creole pan sauce, gouda grits, and fried okra.
"We have a lot of variety on our menu and wanted to offer something special but also widely popular," said Glenn.
To take part in the chance to feast and fellowship on July 1, at 7th and Grove on 930 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605, you can do so during normal restaurant hours. No need to call ahead, upon arrival simply mention the #GrowOnUs campaign to get your free meal.
