Starting April 14, 2020, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is rolling out a new program allowing guests to purchase sandwiches online to be donated to their local first responders. In addition, The Dickey family has pledged to match every sandwich donated to double the efforts to feed first responders.

Dickey’s, in partnership with The Dickey Foundation, will carry out the delivery on the guest’s behalf. The First Responder Packs include bundles of 5 or 10 Pulled Pork Classic Sandwiches and guests can also add any desired number of individual sandwiches to their donation.
