Local restaurants donate 13,000 meals to families in need

South Florida restaurants Sushi Maki and Canton Chinese Restaurant are partnering to support families in need during the pandemic.

Because of donations from local organizations totaling more than $40,000, the restaurants have put together 13,000 meals for vulnerable populations across South Florida. The meals are going to community groups and nonprofits like Big Brother Big Sisters of Miami, Touching Love with Miami and more.

“Vulnerable populations have been severely impacted by this global pandemic,” said Abe Ng, Founder and CEO of Sushi Maki. “We believe it is our duty to support those affected most by ensuring they receive a meal. It’s a privilege to come together as a community to help take care of each other during an uncertain and unprecedented time.”

In addition to these donated meals, Sushi Maki is finding creative ways to provide fresh food at an affordable price during this time. The restaurant has developed a selection of “Gather ‘Round” family meals starting at $49.99 and a Sushi Maki Kit for two or four people with everything you need to create an authentic California Roll by hand. These options are available for pickup and delivery at all Sushi Maki locations throughout South Florida.
