Laser Spine Institute and Tampa Bay Lightning Partner to Change the Face of Tampa Bay

Hunger may seem like an epidemic common only to Third World countries, but in reality, it is a struggle that our communities face on a regular basis. In fact, nearly 700,000 people in the Tampa Bay area go hungry each and every day. Of those, nearly 250,000 are children with no means to satiate their need.

When Laser Spine Institute and the Tampa Bay Lightning realized how great the need was in our community, teaming up to stick it to hunger was natural for both organizations. Thus, the Give & Grub food truck was born.

During its 17 months in operation, the Give & Grub food truck featured gourmet menu items, with a purpose to feed the community that we all call home. For every menu item sold, Laser Spine Institute donated a meal to a hungry child or family in Tampa Bay.

With menu items named after the Tampa Bay Lightning organization’s most influential members, Give & Grub made giving back more delicious than ever. From the Cooper’s Candied Burger, a gourmet burger topped with candied jalapeños, to the Chicken Parmkos Sandwich, a chicken Parmesan sandwich named after renowned Lightning player Steven Stamkos, Give & Grub made anytime a good time to grab some grub.

Laser Spine Institute has donated more than 180,000 meals to hungry kids in the Tampa Bay area through the Give & Grub food truck program. And while the food truck has transitioned operations, the Give & Grub program has evolved into a new and exciting format through the Give & Grub café – an employee only café located in Laser Spine Institute’s new corporate headquarters and ASC. While the café is only open to employees, the truck’s original “buy one, give one” mission will still live on, and the Lightning are still a proud partner!
