Local Eateries Work To Provide Free Summer Meals For Students


THAT LIKE BUTTON, AND YOU COULD BE FEATURED RIGHT HERE ON WCCO THIS MORNING. THIS THURSDAY, MORE THAN 30 AREA RESTAURANTS ARE TEAMING UP TO HELP PAY FORESUMMER MEAL PROGRAMS. HERE IN STUDIO TO TELL US MORE ABOUT IT, WE HAVE DONUTS AND COCKTAILS THIS MORNING. SO IT’S A PRETTY GREAT COMBINATION. WE HAVE SETH, AND ANN FROM BOGARTS, AND THEN NICK, AND YOU ARE FROM LAWLESS. BETTER CUBE, LAWLESS. A LOT OF THINGS. START BY TELLING US ABOUT THE EVENT. IT’S A LOT OF FUN, AND ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE. IT IS FOR A GREAT CAUSE. THIS IS THE 11th YEAR OF HOT LIST, AND THE SUMMER TIME IS SUCH A TOUCH TIME FOR KIDS, BECAUSE THE ONLY MEAL THEY’RE GETTING EVERY DAY IS THE MEAL THAT THEY GET IN SCHOOL. SO IT’S REALLY A TIME WHERE WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON TRYING TO DEFICIT THESE KIDS ACCESS TO FOOD. THAT’S THE BIGGEST STRUGGLE. THERE’S PLENTY OF FOOD OUT THERE, PLENTY OF KIDS IN NEED OF FOOD, CONNECTING THEM TO THE FOOD IS THE BIGGEST STRUGGLE. AND THAT’S WHAT THIS EVENT IS ALL ABOUT. LAST YEAR, ONE OF THE BIGGEST THING IS EVERYONE WAS GOING FOR THE DONUTS, AND YOU BROUGHT IN SOME OF THE DOUGH THIS MORNING TO SHARE SOME OF THE MAGIC? THAT’S RIGHT. SO JUST HAVE TO CUSTODY IT OUT. YEAH, POWER OF TELEVISION HERE, READY TO GO. SO WE’LL BE SERVING THIS WITH OUR WARM BROWN BUTTER GLAZE, WHICH IS A CROWD FAVORITE. DO YOU JUST DIP THE WHOLE DONUT? I DO. WHAT BETTER THAN TO PAIR IT WITH A NICE COCKTAIL. THAT’S A BIG PART OF IT, BE TOO. WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THAT? THE BEST BAR TENDERS ARE COME TOGETHER. IT’S REALLY EXCITING TO SEE EVERYBODY COME OUT AND SHOW THEIR TALENTS. I’M ACTUALLY HERE FOR DONUTS. WE HAVE TWO NEW DRINKS ON THE LAWLESS DISTILLERY UNIT. THIS IS A VODKA OLD-FASHIONED. WE WANT TO HAVE FUN WITH THE COCKTAILS. EVERYTHING AS IS PREWATCHED AS POSSIBLE. WE’VE ADDED MILLING TO THE VODKA, ALONG WITH GREEN TEA, AND THEN WE HAVE IS IT TRICK ACID BE, AND YOU GET THIS RICH CREAMY FLAVOR. AND YOU CAN TAKE NO PUNCHES AND BOTTLE THEM AND KEEP THEM FOR YEARS. I’VE NEVER THOUGHT TO PUT MILLING WITH VODKA LIKE THAT BEFORE. IT’S FANTASTIC. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE SOME OF THESE MICROORCHIDS, AND PUT IT ON TOP OF THE ICE. THE ICE IS 0 SO COOL, IT WILL ACTUALLY STICK. THE GARNISH IS POISONOUS, MY DEAR. I ALWAYS LIKE TO CHECK. YOU NEVER KNOW WITH THE BAR TINDERS IN THE TWIN CITIES. AND THEN WE’RE DOING BOTTLED COCKTAILS, AS WELL. WE’RE TAKING SOME OF OUR FAVORITE MEXICAN SO DASS, AND WE’RE TAKING A LITTLE BIT OF THE SODA OUT, ADDING A LITTLE BIT OF SPIRIT, SOME CITRUS, AND THEN WE’RE RECASH ON EIGHTING SO THAT YOU BASICALLY WALK INTO THE BAR AND HAVE A COCKTAIL. ? AND IT’S ALL READY TO GO. LET’S GIVE YOU THE INFORMATION FOR THE EVENT, BECAUSE I DON’T THINK YOU WANT TO MISS OUT ON DONUTS, COCKTAILS, AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS THEY HAVE GOING ON. TICKETS ARE $75 A, AND IT ALL GOES TO SUCH AN AMAZING CAUSE. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING IN THIS MORNING, BRINGING DONUTS AND COCKTAILS, AND I THINK THAT WE MIGHT HAVE TO BRING A COUPLE OVER, BECAUSE I CAN SEE EVERYONE STARING AT US ON THE COUCH. THEY WANT TO GIVE IT A TRY. WE’RE JUST GLAD IT’S NOT A POISONOUS FLOWER. LOOK HE AT THE LITTLE BABY DUCKLINGS. A BEAUTIFUL SHOT THERE. WE’LL HAVE YOUR FORECAST IF JUST A MINUTE.

WE KNOW THAT A LOT OF KIDS RELY NOT ONLY ON THE LUNCHES THAT THEY GET DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, BUT THERE ARE BREAKFAST PROGRAMS IN THERE, TOO. WHILE SUMMER TIME IS GREAT TIME FOR KIDS, IT’S ALSO A SCARY TIME FOR KIDS, BECAUSE MANY KIDS, THE ONLY MEAL THEY ARE GETTING IS AT SCHOOL. WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PROGRAMS OUT THERE.
