Scott Enterprises, which owns & operates Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park Resort recently launched a month-long effort to support to local families impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Beginning on Tuesday, May 5, the Erie-based hospitality company, Scott Enterprises, will provide free family-style meals to those in need.

The campaign will continue every Tuesday & Thursday in the month of May, with the family-style meal pick-up beginning at 1:00 PM.

The meals will be prepared by Chef Manny Morales and the award-winning culinary team of The Ambassador Banquet & Conference Center. The specific meals available will vary but will include dishes like chicken stroganoff, homemade meatloaf with mashed potatoes & vegetables, spaghetti with freshly prepared meatballs, and a turkey dinner with mashed potatoes & broccoli. The meals will be prepared family-style and will feed approximately four people.

The meal giveaway will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis from 1 PM until 3 or 4 PM or until approximately 1,600 meals are given out each day. In total, Scott Enterprises will provide over 10,000 meals in the month of May. The meals will be served refrigerated and fully cooked, with heating instructions on each container.

Families interested in picking up a meal donation should drive to The Ambassador Banquet & Conference Center on Upper Peach Street, then follow the posted signs & traffic directors to the meal pick-up area. To ensure proper social distancing protocol, the meals will be placed directly in a car’s trunk. Those picking up meals must remain in their vehicles at all times and are encouraged to wear a face mask. This donation is meant for families who are truly in need and not meant for those who can afford otherwise.

“We believe in our city and know that by coming together, Erie will get through these difficult times” explained Nick Scott Sr., President of Scott Enterprises. “We will be giving away over 10,000 meals throughout the month of May to support those in need.”

“We have always taken great pride in the dining experiences we provided guests at our restaurants in the Erie-area,” said Nick Scott Jr., Vice-President of Scott Enterprises. “This is our way of giving back to our community in this difficult time, by doing what we do best – providing great meals and serving them with a smile.”

“Our incredible team members have pulled together to organize this family meal donation campaign,” said Chris N. Scott, Vice-President of Scott Enterprises. “We’re excited to be firing up our kitchens and serving guests once again.”

Scott Enterprises consulted with the Erie County Department of Health to ensure proper precautions will be taken during the event.

The entire Scott Enterprises team is eager to serve guests in the not-too-distant future as the area’s leading hospitality company, comprised of over 2,000 team members and over 4 million guest experiences annually. The staff at The Ambassador Center looks forward to being able to host weddings, charity events, banquets, and business meetings, while the teams at Splash Lagoon and Peek’n Peak are looking forward to welcoming travelers and adventure-seekers from near and far. Meanwhile, restaurant teams are offering delivery & pick-up where possible, observing Social Distancing and protocols for the safety of all.
