A cheesesteak joint in Lower Bucks County is once again raising money to donate food to those in need. And this time it’s a team effort with a twist.
Founder Jason “Jay” Green says customers at Jay’s Steak and Hoagie Joint have helped to donate 68,000 pounds of food since 2014. Last year, they raised $3,000 to help supply 1,500 gallons of heating oil.
This year, Jay is mixing it up. He’s joining forces with the Odd Logic Brewing Company in Bristol to help make sure homes are heated too.
Each Sunday through Thursday this month, the Jay’s food truck will be posted outside of Odd Logic at the corner of Bristol Pike and Corson Street.
Jay’s will be donating 5 percent of sales and Odd Logic is giving 25 cents of each pint sold this month to help families heat their homes.
Additionally, 25 cents of each Jay’s “famous pretzel roll” sold will go to food pantries in the local area.
“There’s really no easier way to help our neighbors than getting a fresh cheesesteak and enjoying it with a beer. Fill your belly and help your neighbors. There’s a greater need than ever before this year,” said Green.
Jays and Odd Logic are coordinating with Big Oak Fuel in Levittown to identify which households are most in need of heating.
“Jay and I are both super active in our communities with various charitable efforts,”
said Odd Logic Owner Tim Shaw. “It was a no-brainer to join forces to help heat some homes this winter, as well donate to the local food banks.”
The Jay’s food truck will be stationed at Odd Logic, which is located at 500 Bristol Pike, Bristol. Jay’s physical location can be found at 1205 Highland Avenue, Parkland.
