Eat’n Park Restaurants (www.eatnpark.com) is planning to help local food banks in their efforts to bring fresh produce to more people. From Sunday, August 2 through Saturday, August 8, Eat’n Park will donate 50 cents from every Soup, Salad, and Fruit Bar entrée sold to Westmoreland County Food Bank (WCFB) in Delmont, PA.
“At Eat’n Park, we’re passionate about serving our restaurant guests locally grown and produced foods through our FarmSource program,” explains Trina DeMarco, Director of Corporate Giving and Community Partnerships, Eat’n Park Restaurants. “But we also recognize that some people in our community don’t have easy access to fresh produce. Our goal with this initiative is to help bridge that gap.”
For more than 10 years Eat’n Park has focused on procuring locally grown and produced foods through its FarmSource program, enabling restaurant guests to enjoy fresh, wholesome foods while also supporting the local agricultural community.
“We really want to make a meaningful difference so we’ve set a goal of donating $10,000 to local food banks, and we’re hoping our guests will help to make that goal a reality,” DeMarco says. “The first week of August is a great time to visit Eat’n Park’s Soup, Salad and Fruit Bar, knowing that you’ll not only enjoy the freshest produce of the season, but you’ll also be helping our neighbors in need.”
“We are very grateful for the FarmSource dollars being designated to the Westmoreland County Food Bank,” says Kris M. Douglas, Chief Executive Officer, WCFB. “With decreasing funding from our county, state, and federal governments, and at the same time, ever increasing need, campaigns such as this that raise money have become more crucial than ever in the fight against hunger in our great nation. Without campaigns like this, we would never be able to address as much of the need for fresh produce as we do in Westmoreland County. Thank you, Eat’n Park!”
Through this initiative, Eat’n Park will partner with food banks in every community throughout its service area in western and central Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, and West Virginia.
