The holidays are a time to count our blessings and give what we can to help those less fortunate. The Nutrition Initiative of Manatee (NIP) is a nonprofit that’s dedicated to helping to feed needy families in Manatee County. However, they also do so much more!
Families that are enrolled in NIP’s eight-week program receive a weekly grocery delivery with all of the ingredients needed to make the “recipe of the week.” It also comes with step-by-step instructions, supplemental groceries, and tips for repurposing leftovers. This program is designed not only to put food on the table, but also to help these families develop life skills like cooking, meal planning, and grocery shopping on a budget.
Want to support this great cause and have blast?! Then you’ll want to head down to Paddywagon’s newest location in downtown Bradenton (320 12th St W) for their Happy Hour Fundraiser! It will be held THIS Thursday, November 19th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
The event is open to the public and will feature live raffles and drink specials including a specialty martini crafted just for the evening!
