BANGOR — Downtown Bangor is thrilled to host Blaze Bangor’s mobile food truck Friday, May 8 from 12-7 p.m. and Sunday, May 10 for Mother’s Day brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A dollar from every meal purchased will benefit the Maine Veterans Project.

 

This is the latest in a series of popup food events Blaze has hosted in the region that partner with other struggling restaurants and channel funds to charities. Next week Blaze will do another Bangor Blaze popup and a popup to collaborate with and benefit Black Bear Brewing.

 

This is all part of a larger charitable effort on the part of Blaze owner Matty Haskell which includes a partnership with Sunrise Glass to cook and donate 30 meals to the homeless population each Saturday.

 

This week Blaze will launch a new 6-week program, starting Wednesday, May 13, to provide top quality grass-fed hamburgers to school children at Bangor schools. The first school will be Downeast on the 13th followed by Bangor High School on May 20 and Abraham Lincoln on the 27th

 

Downtown Coordinator Betsy Lundy says, “These pop ups represent the kind of collaborative, community spirit that makes Downtown Bangor so special. Downtown Bangor business owners have been especially innovative in pivoting and creating new business models during this unprecedented pandemic.”
