Knick's hopes that providing food to hospital workers will take the burden of eating well off of their plates. With each donation, Knick's will be deliver freshly made, boxed meals to the hospital. Contributions can be made on the restaurant's website, by Venmo-ing @knickstavern, or by using Apple Pay at the number (941) 232-3406. Donation options range from $20-$500. Each meal is priced at $12.50, so a $50 donation, for example, will provide four meals.
