FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – City leaders and non-profit organizers are suggesting you eat and support a worthy cause when you’re in downtown Fort Worth.
The YWCA Fort Worth has launched a sandwich production and bike delivery service called Power Lunch.
The company is more than just a delivery business; it’s part of a program helping fund lifesaving programs for women and children.
Profits from Power Lunch will help underwrite programming for low-income and homeless clients served by the YWCA.
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price was on hand for the official launch of the business venture and said the new service is, “… a great benefit for people downtown, but more importantly it empowers women who have been homeless or on the verge of homelessness.”
Organizers of the delivery venture say Power Lunch will serve “healthy, gourmet sandwiches” to the downtown Fort Worth area. Ultimately the goal of the business is to help low-income families.
“It’s really a win for everybody,” Price said. “You get a great lunch delivered to you without having to go out in the heat or rain and you’re providing a service for women that are less fortunate than others.”
Mayor Price said the alliance that made Power Lunch a reality isn’t something unique.
“The YWCA continues to surprise us and to please us with what they do,” she said. “The non-profit partnerships and our business partnerships are what makes Fort Worth so incredibly unique.”
Power Lunch organizers said women working their way to self-sufficiency would staff four of the seven new jobs created.
YWCA Power Lunch is open for business Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., with deliveries between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
While the Power Lunch bicycle delivery area is limited to downtown Sundance Square, the company will accept all orders for pickup.
