Hillbilly Smokers, led by Farm 2 Counter’s Paul Allen, has been cooking hundreds of pounds of pulled pork, sides and more each week to hand out for free during their drive-through events each Friday in Springfield and each Wednesday in Branson. The effort is helped along thanks to numerous organizations including Flat Creek Restaurants donation of both food and cooking time, and Dove Creek Wagyu Cattle Co. donation of rice and beef jerky.
Throughout the past few weeks, Taylor and Andy Goessmann have been organizing an effort to bring tasty lunches from local restaurants to the people who are working to keep the rest of us stocked with groceries and care for local patients. They took community donations and brought meals to employees at places like Grove Pharmacy, Price Cutter, Harter House, Mercy Urgent Care, Cox Medical Center and more. The lunches were purchased from local businesses like The Pitch, Arris’ Pizza, Progress, Coyotes in Nixa and more. If you’d like to help out, donations are accepted online through a Paypal pool.
