Food Fight Against Hunger: A Partnership with Second Harvest Foodbank
September is Hunger Action Month
Join Food Fight Restaurant Group and Second Harvest as we work together to fight hunger.
September is Hunger Action Month, where people all over America stand together with food banks to fight hunger. It’s a time to spread the word, take action on the hunger crisis, and dedicate ourselves to a solution. Fighting hunger in your community can be as easy as going out to eat or enjoying a cocktail. Visit any Food Fight restaurant in September and order an item from our special Harvest Menus and we will automatically make a donation to Second Harvest Foodbank on your behalf.
At Food Fight, we take special care of our customers at each and every one of our restaurants. We have an eatery for all budgets and lifestyles: from casual to upscale. But there are many folks who simply can’t afford to eat out — some can’t even afford to eat in. We’re helping to take care of them, too, through a partnership with Second Harvest.
LAST YEAR WE DONATED OVER $36,000 - that’s more that 100,000 MEALS!
Donating is easy… just eat!
Try our Harvest Menus at any Food Fight location offered September 1 - 30
Do some good and dine well by visiting Food Fight restaurants throughout September. Each Food Fight restaurant has created a unique Harvest Menu to be featured for the entire month. For every dish ordered from the Harvest Menu we’ll donate $1 to Second Harvest Foodbank. Plus, we’ve partnered with O’so Brewing and Tito’s Handmade Vodka to raise money for every featured beer and cocktail sold.
Another great way to support Food Fight Against Hunger
Orange is the color for hunger awareness — get into the spirit and try the featured drinks on our Harvest Menus. They’re a great way to show your support, so drink orange all month long!
Special thanks to our amazing beverage sponsors, Tito's Handmade Vodka and O'so Brewing.
- Tito’s Blood Orange Mule: made with Tito's Handmade Vodka, Solerno Blood Orange, ginger beer, and lime over ice.
- Blood Orange Tito-Rita: made with Tito's Handmade Vodka, Solerno Blood Orange, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and salt.
For every cocktail you order, Tito’s Handmade Vodka will donate $2 to Second Harvest Foodbank, up to $5,000.
- The Big O Wheat Ale: a gold medal-winning beer from O'so Brewing in Plover, WI that combines orange zest with malted wheat for a crisp, refreshing flavor.
O'so Brewing will donate 10% of The Big O sales to Second Harvest during the month of September.
Direct Donations during Hunger Action Month
In addition to our Harvest Menus, each restaurant will be raising money through direct donations.
Ways you can donate:
- Add it to your bill by filling out the donation line at the bottom of your receipt.
- Give a cash donation. Donation jars will be available at each restaurant host desk.
Because our employees are community-involved, each restaurant will be competing to raise the most employee donations… with Food Fight matching every dollar contributed by our staff!
Feast of Five Chefs Second Harvest Benefit Dinner during NBC15 Share Your Holidays Campaign
Wednesday, November 7
Since 1986, Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin has put more than 100 million meals on the tables of the 1 in 9 southwestern Wisconsin residents who face hunger every day. The least we can do is help them a little in their efforts. On Wednesday, November 7, Johnny Delmonico’s Steakhouse will host Feast of Five Chefs, Food Fight’s annual Second Harvest Benefit Dinner. We invite you to indulge in this truly unique dining experience, as five of our Executive Chefs will be crafting a signature 5-course meal with wine pairings. $65 from every ticket benefits Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. Since $1 equals 3 meals, that means 195 meals will be provided to those in need for every ticket purchased for this special dinner.
This event sold out in just 4 days in 2017! More information to come!
We hope you’ll join us in these very special events to help a very worthy cause. Not only will you feel great, you’ll enjoy some fantastic fall flavors that can’t be experienced anywhere else.
