Islamorada Mayor Mike Forster and owner of Mangrove Mikes has provided a hot lunch for 5,000 people since March 20. So far, the drive-through spots have been in the Upper Keys but that changes on Saturday, April 4, when he’ll do it in Marathon with the help of two local restaurants — Brutus Seafood and Sweet Savannahs.
Hot lunches will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Brutus Seafood at 6950 Overseas Highway. People can drive through or walk up, so long as they maintain proper physical distances. All meals will be bagged and ready to go. The hot meals include a protein, starch, vegetable, salad and a sweet treat from Sweet Savannah’s.
