Beat the Heat: Mission H2O Returns in August!

During a summer season where you can’t step outside without hearing a complaint about the sweltering & relentless heat, our 5th & Church location is partnering with Nashville Rescue Mission for the third consecutive “Mission H2O” campaign. Last year we were able to donate nearly 20,000 water bottles to the Mission, and our goal this year is to provide 25,000 bottles of water to the local homeless community during the month of August!

From August 1 to August 31, diners at our 5th & Church location will have the option to add a donation of a dollar or more to the total of their bill. For each dollar donated, two bottled waters will be given to the Mission. In an effort to make an even larger impact for the organization and surrounding community, our parent company, A. Marshall Family Foods Inc., will match the amount y’all donate.

Cheryl Noe, senior director of development for Nashville Rescue Mission, has been amazed by the continued growth and success of the Mission H2O drive.

“The nearly 20,000 water bottles donated as a result of last year’s Mission H2O were absolutely crucial to the Mission during both the summer and fall months,” Noe said. “Once the heat slacks off, people stop thinking about the need for water. But the need is still there.”

The Mission ramps up efforts to keep members of Nashville’s homeless community hydrated during summer months by sending out “Hot Patrol” teams to traverse the city handing out water bottles when the temperature exceeds 92 degrees, in addition to encouraging those without shelter to come back to the Mission with them.

“Donating to Mission H2O is no trivial act, particularly because we see an increase in the number of women and children we serve during the summer months, ” Noe said. “You are making a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families by contributing.”

The water bottles, supplied by Kimbro Water Company, are delivered to the Mission on a weekly basis throughout August to help meet the demand the summer months create.

In order to magnify the impact of Mission H2O, Kimbro takes on a partial sponsorship by lowering the cost of the water bottles so that $1 covers the purchase of two bottles.

Mission H2O has become an annual endeavor that the entire Puckett’s family looks forward to. 

“We feel incredibly fortunate to be able to rally the Nashville community in support of a cause that has a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of individuals who need support the most,” said Rachel Layton, director of marketing for A. Marshall Family Foods. “Nothing is more rewarding to us, and our team’s enthusiasm is illustrated through the success of this campaign in the past two years.”

We could not have made our past Mission H2O drives so successful without the help of our amazing guests and our giving, thoughtful community. What do y’all say? You wanna join us in making this year’s Mission H2O the best one yet?!

Puckett’s Peach-Glazed Pork Chop Recipe Revealed!

Puckett's- Food-Pork Chop-3

We made just a few changes to the Puckett’s menu this summer, and our new Peach-Glazed Pork Chop has quickly become one our most popular dishes! Of course, we’re always hoping you’ll stop by the restaurant to visit and let us cook for you, but we figured we’d be doing everyone a disservice by keeping the recipe to ourselves!

Chef Billy Hearn, from our downtown Nashville location, went on Channel 5’s Talk of the Town recently and boy, did he make us hungry! You’ll have to watch the segment to get the recipe but we’ll give you a tip — it’s best to brine the pork chops for 12-24 hours so they’ll be nice and juicy, so if you’re planning on serving this to your nearest and dearest, you’ll want to get started early! We add some color to the plate and serve the peach-glazed pork chop with our smashed sweet potatoes and flat ironed green beans. (P.S. – if you try out this recipe at home, you have to promise to post a picture on Instagram and tag @puckettsgrocery so we can admire it!)

Did you catch that beautiful shot of our Music City Hot Chicken Sandwich at the end? Like Chef Billy said, it’s just $5 if you order it from Puckett’s 5th & Church through OrderUp this week (July 25th – July 31st.) We’re not sure there’s a better deal around! And, of course, OrderUp can deliver the rest of our menu to all of you in the Nashville area at any time – just click the link on our website and get to ordering!

PUCKETT’S NASHVILLE WILL LAUNCH SECOND “MISSION H2O” CAMPAIGN ON AUGUST 1ST

 

e-mission-h2o-fullsize

With temperatures often soaring above 90 degrees, it is safe to say that August is the hottest month in Nashville. In weather like that, staying hydrated is crucial, but for many in Nashville’s homeless community, it can be hard to do. That is why we at Puckett’s 5th & Church are thrilled to be teaming up again with the Nashville Rescue Mission for “Mission H2O,” a project that provides water to Nashville’s homeless community.

Last year, we collected over 10,000 water bottles, supplied by Kimbro Water Company, for the Mission. With the help of our customers, we know we can do even better this year, so we’ve decided to raise our goal to 15,000 bottles!

Kimbro sources and packages the water bottles locally in Pall Mall, Tenn. and we are very grateful for their partnership as we launch this campaign for the second year in a row.

“We feel very strongly about Mission H2O, and we want to help Puckett’s impact the community in a big way,” Matthew Neary, sales and marketing manager for Kimbro Water Company, said.

From August 1st to August 31st, Puckett’s diners will have the option of adding an extra dollar or two to their bill. For each dollar, two bottles of water will be donated to the Mission. In addition, our parent company, A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. will match the amount donated by our guests.

The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry and homeless, and offers programs that focus on spiritual growth, education, employment and life-recovery. The Mission aims to give members of the community hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity. Help us, along with the Nashville Rescue Mission, spread love and care this August to those who need it the most in our community!
