Helping Others for the Holidays

Published Nov 19th, 2019

Many of our local restaurants are supporting a needy charity this holiday season. You could help your favorite restaurant with a toy drive, food drive, monetary donation, or time. Whether you can donate or become a volunteer, every little bit helps. Choose to give at your local restaurant, or consider what you can do to make a difference at other food related organizations. Here’s list of our favorites!
