While the coronavirus pandemic has put a strain on our local restaurants, many are still finding ways to give back to their local community.


Serving High-Risk Groups

Jason’s Deli at 4209 E. McCain Blvd. is extending its Community Partners Program to shelters, organizations supporting the elderly and groups helping underserved communities. This includes a reduced-price menu, free delivery and individually packaged meals starting at $5.

“If you are in a high-risk population, we are allowing shopping by appointment before or after hours,” said Amanda Wilson with Nana’s Organix at 304 Main St. “We are also offering free sanitized contactless delivery for any purchase over $50 and only a $2.99 fee for any purchase under.” Curbside and delivery (within a five-mile radius) is also available.



  • American Pie Pizza (9709 Maumelle Blvd. and 4830 North Hills Boulevard): 10% discount for first responders, medical professionals, military and teachers. Curbside and delivery available.

  • Flyway Brewing (314 Maple St.): 10% off growlers. Curbside available.

  • The Hybrid Kitchen (13120 Crystal Hill Road): 10% discount for military, police, firefighters and EMT with a uniform or badge. Curbside available and delivery within a five-mile radius.

Food Donations

“For the last two weeks we have been giving away a free sausage biscuit to any child 18 years old or younger, with no purchase required,” said Nicholas Shurgot, Hardee’s franchisee of central Arkansas. Limited to one per day, the offer will be extended until Easter and is available at the Hardee’s at 4901 JFK Blvd.

Hideaway Pizza at 5103 Warden Road is working with the hospitals including Baptist Health Medical Center in North Little Rock to arrange food donations for doctors and nurses. 

“One of our general managers in Tulsa has a sister working in the ER and let us know how busy they are [in the ER] and in the ICU, as well as how stressful things are for them right now,” said Janie Harris, marketing director.
