Devour Phoenix and Waste Not Team Up for Hunger Awareness Drive
July 17 -31
Devour Members set goal of using local food producers to raise enough money to feed 100,000 people
Local chefs and restaurant owners are collaborating in an ambitious effort to raise awareness about the hunger crisis happening right here in our own backyard. Right now, 1 in 4 children in Maricopa County go to bed hungry every night. Devour Restaurants are teaming up for a two week hunger awareness drive to raise funds for Waste Not, an organization that collects 6,000 pounds of food per day and re-distributes that food to the hungry. For every dollar raised, Waste Not can feed six people. Devour hopes to raise enough funds to feed 100,000 people- we invite the public to join us in this important endeavor.
The details are simple and tasty:
We want you to dine out to Devour Hunger for Waste Not! Twelve Devour restaurants will feature dishes for a two week period, July 17 – 31. Proceeds from the Waste Not dish will go directly to Waste Not’s food rescue mission. Each dish will feature local food producers such as The Meat Shop, Queen Creek Olive Mill, McClendon’s Select, Seacat Gardens, Strictly from Scratch and more! Feeding 100,000 people has never been so easy (and so delicious!)
