CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — The coronavirus pandemic is having a global impact on the economy. Thousands of Americans are struggling after being laid off or losing work as government and state officials implement measures aimed at slowing the spread of the virus.

Despite President Trump signing a historic 2.2 trillion dollar stimulus package, there are still people in need.

On Tuesday, Butcher & Sprout announced that it would be joining forces with the Formerly Homeless Foundation to provide meals to those who are unemployed during this time. 

"Because of this we want to do all we can to help our neighbors," Butcher & Sporout said in a Facebook post, acknowledging that even tougher times are on the horizon. 

Every Sunday, beginning April 5, the group will hand out meals to those in need--no questions asked. The meals will be available from noon to 2 p.m.

While the organizations have started the initiative, they are seeking help from the community in order to keep the efforts going. If you're interested in donating to the cause, click here

For $100 donated, the donor will receive a $10 gift card to Butcher and Sprout with a bottle of hand sanitizer made by Hope Soap. 

Butcher & Sprout is located at 1846 Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls.
