Concept & Mission
Trophy Helps is a partnership between Trophy Brewing Company, Pale Fire Brewing Co, Sysco Foods, Bridge the Gap Mission and Digital Minerva. Our goal is to help people in the restaurant industry with direct support by supplying food products, free of charge.
Our restaurant industry has been decimated by the quick widespread effects of the COVID-19 virus. Hundreds of restaurant workers in Raleigh and the surrounding area have been laid off, and this means, for many, a total loss of income with little to no warning.
Trophy Brewing Company’s large Main Campus on Maywood is the perfect location to act as a hub for food distribution to our affected community. We are putting our space to work as a pickup location for food items generously donated by our friends at Sysco Foods. Anyone in the restaurant industry is welcome to stop by our space and pick up shelf-stable food items for themselves and their families in this time of need.
Our partnership with Bridge the Gap Mission provides a structure through which donations can be made as well as logistical support and communication with the community. Digital Minerva has donated its services through the creation, hosting maintenance and ongoing updates of this website which provides up to date information to those in need.
Responsible sanitation and zero contact protocols in use at all of our locations will be in use. We are trying to limit the possibility of transmission and ensure the safety of our volunteers and our community as we get the food into the hands of the hungry.
We will be providing ample signage, significant spacing to minimize risks.
