Thirteen restaurants serving barbecue in or near Davidson County will donate a portion of their proceeds this Saturday to Pastor’s Pantry.

Caring people can help feed the hungry simply by going out and enjoying good food.

This is at least the fifth consecutive year for the all-day fundraiser, which was started in cooperation with Lexington Barbecue in Lexington. Last year, the event expanded from one restaurant to 10. This year, the event adds three more restaurants overall.

Participating  restaurants include The Barbecue Center, Cook’s Barbecue, Henry James Family Dining, Lexington Barbecue, Smiley’s Lexington BBQ, Smokey Joe’s Barbecue, and Speedy’s Barbecue, all in Lexington or close by; Smokey T’s BBQ outside Thomasville; Henry James Family Dining in Arcadia; Stamey’s Barbecue in Tyro; Tar Heel Q in Yadkin College; and Rick’s Restaurant and The Village Restaurant, both in Denton.

Pastor’s Pantry, a 39-year-old nonprofit organization in Lexington, supplies free groceries monthly for needy senior adults age 60 and older and members of their households throughout Davidson County. The organization also supplies emergency food for needy families and individuals regardless of age. In May, the pantry provided food for 768 people.
