The Martucci Group, a local and growing restaurant group in East Greenwich has launch a new SOUP·ORT program in response to the recent COVID19 crisis. In addition to their take-out and curbside menu, they are now offering quarts of their famous Italian Wedding Soup for just $1.00 for healthcare workers, their families, first responders and senior citizen within the community.
TJ Martucci, President of The Martucci Group (TMG), wanted to find a way to give back to those who are doing so much to keep everyone safe and provide a warm meal for those who are most at risk. Since the program launched last week, there has been an overwhelming amount of support from the community. So much in fact, that donations started coming in immediately and they created a ‘SOUP BANK’ which now has received a surplus of donations, so the soup is now complimentary for healthcare workers, first responders, and senior citizens. The team at TMG is planning to make station drops at local medical and rescue facilities as well in the coming weeks due to these donations.
“Seeing how people have responded to this program just reiterates why we wanted to help out in the first place,” says Martucci. “The Martucci Group is continuously grateful to our community for their support and loyalty, especially during these uncertain times. We are honored to be able to pay it forward in any way we can.”
Soup is available for curbside pick up at 195 Old Forge Rd. East Greenwich, RI (Safehouse entrance). Call ahead is available, but not required for the SOUP·ORT Program recipients. The menu is also available on DoorDash and daily specials are posted on www.thetrapri.com.
