“100% will be donated to the family,” said Teresa Manley, Chef Jeremy’s mother.  “Our staff is amazing and they are donating their time, we will be donating the food costs and I know our wonderful community will come together and do everything they can to help our neighbors,” she continued. 

“If the price is a little too much for you, come by anyway and we’ll drop the price to get you in and support the family,” said Chef Jeremy. 

“Rory is like my brother and I’d do anything for him,” said Sous Chef Dax Christian.  “We are a family and we stick together,” has been echoed from everyone on staff at Jeremy’s.
