The Lee Initiative is currently operating out of the Great Bagel’s Boston Road location which has been turned into Lexington’s local relief center for out-of-work restaurant workers.

The initiative already has served more than 2,600 meals for fellow industry workers, many of whom are in need due to furloughs and layoffs in the restaurant industry.

The ‘Virginia’ ice cream follows an ‘Andy’ flavor in tribute to Gov. Andy Beshear.
