FEED THE HUNGRY CORPORATION
is a Texas nonprofit IRS tax exempt organization #83-4018336.
Almost 10 years ago, The Catering Guy LLC opened a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit restaurant because food is a fabulous artform that brings faith, family, and friends together. As our business grew, we realized more and more that hunger is a huge issue for the poor, even in nice neighborhoods. In fact, statistics show that every community in the country is home to people who struggle with hunger daily.
Since 2011, at both Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Rowlett, TX as well as in Mabank, TX, The Catering Guy LLC’s semi-annual Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Boat and Off-road vehicle shows have proved to be a favorite in the community. From the inception, we have always promoted a FREE show with all donations going to charity. The last couple of years, we have dedicated our shows to FEED THE HUNGRY CORPORATION events.
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Rowlett, TX and in Mabank, TX have always devoted several days a year to feeding anyone in the community that is hungry for FREE, no questions asked. Almost immediately into the events, we sought to identify deeper needs within the community and to help these people in partnerships with local churches, food banks, clothing banks, shelters, Counselors, et al. In addition to feeding them for a day, we have been able to provide groceries, clothing, counseling, pay utility bills, provide gift cards and even hope, especially at Christmas time.
In February of 2019 we incorporated FEED THE HUNGRY CORPORATION as a Texas nonprofit agency and have received our IRS 501 (C)(3) tax exempt status in order to increase our community serve ability. We are currently doing a needs survey to determine how we can better serve and improve our community. Our members are dedicated to serving the community. In fact, that is a part of our mission.
FEED THE HUNGRY CORPORATION board members are interested in creating a Boys and Girls Club, especially in the Cedar Creek Lake area, where children can have a safe place for well-rounded Renaissance activities including a hot meal, After-School programs, Tutoring, State & Home School credit, Computer Knowledge, Career Exploration, Camping & Outdoors, Music, Water Sports, Basketball, Soccer, Crafts, and Health.
