Recognizing that there were so many people struggling, Parker’s Kitchen created a $20 million community fund to support charitable causes across coastal Georgia and South Carolina. They plan to grow that fund to $100 million over the next 10 years. This commitment speaks to their organization’s value of stepping up, leading by example and supporting all of the communities where they operate stores.
