Businesses ‘hunger’ to pay it forward with local lunch challenge


Here’s some good news to brighten your day.

Local businesses are passing along some goodwill with a “lunch challenge.”

Tara Ratliff, manager of The Purple Goat, filled me in on this fun.

She doesn’t know who came up with the idea (and neither do I), but we both agree that it’s a great idea.

Here’s how it works: In order to get lunch, a business has to agree to pay it forward by providing lunch for another local business.

Ratliff said she has been able to trace the timeline back to this: Smith Supply provided lunch to Edwards & Stokes who then provided lunch to F&M Bank.

F&M Bank then purchased lunch for Hunter Body Works and on Friday, Hunter Body Works will provide food for Bramlett Implement.

Ratliff said The Purple Goat is preparing Friday’s lunch for Bramlett employees.

“This is just a lot of fun,” she said. “We are excited to take part in it.”
