Chewing For Charity
Chewing for Charity is a series about combining food and community good. Select restaurants craft unique and appealing dishes that attract the modern tech-savy diner and have portions of each dish sold be donated to a charitable cause. From January 10th - 19th, the first Chewing For Charity - themed Give Warmth - will feature 4 restaurants that have created dishes that revolved around the concept of "warmth" and "comfort." From each campaign dish sold, the participating restaurants will donate towards A Better Life Foundation and their community projects that support funding food supplies for children, mothers, and those on assisted living.
Buy a meal and in turn help A Better Life Foundation buy one for a child or mother in need of food.
Disclosure: We were invited to try the signature dishes at each restaurant.
