Every Plate Full Food Bank fundraiser Update

Well, as of yesterday, we're up to $87.00 in donations to the Every Plate Full Campaign, a fundraiser in support of The Food Bank of Waterloo. Maybe it doesn't sound like a lot, but each $1 provides 3 meals through the food bank, so every bit helps. If you haven't supported the campaign yet, please do before the end of May to help fight insecurity on our community.

For anyone who doesn't know about the campaign, here are the details:

For the entire month of May, 10% of sales from our very popular Rice Bowls (the "Japanese" is Vegan, the "BBQ" features our pulled pork, and both are G-Free), will be donated to The Food Bank of Waterloo Region to help them meet their goal of providing 95,000 meals over the summer. Don't feel like having a Rice Bowl..? No problem, we're happy to add a donation to The Food Bank to your bill. Just $1.00 will provide 3 meals through the food bank! We'll keep you updated on how our campaign is going...
