Outback Suwanee Donates 381 Meals to Benefit Gwinnett Seniors

Outback Steakhouse donated 381 meals to benefit Gwinnett County Senior Services. This is the tenth year the restaurant has relentlessly given back to the community to help provide meals to seniors.

Volunteers and members of The Friends of Gwinnett County Senior Services (Friends) delivered scrumptious meals consisting of “choice” beef, flame-grilled chicken, seasoned green beans, mashed potatoes, and a roll across Gwinnett County. The annual event has generated more than $90,500 in the past ten years.

“I wanted to give back to the seniors and thought this is a good way to do it,” said Outbacker staff member, Christi Solsbeery.

Funds from the Outback at Work Charity lunch will help to subsidize the 135,000 home delivered and congregate meals which are prepared and delivered by the Gwinnett County Senior Services on an annual basis.

“It is anticipated that we will get another great turnout for the next event on Wednesday, October 21,” says Linda Bailey, Manager of Gwinnnett Senior Services. For a minimum order of ten meals at $15 each, you can get your meal delivered to your worksite, please call Melanie Miller at 770.822.8842 or send her an e-mail at
