Salad and Go is going above and beyond to support the local community by collecting donations for two local nonprofits, Waste Not and Homeward Bound. Through the end of the month, Salad and Go staff will collect donations through their drive-thrus and online orders, providing an easy way for their guests to make a difference. One hundred percent of the donations collected will be split evenly between the two organizations.
This isn’t the first time Salad and Go has stepped up to help those in need. In response to COVID-19, they stepped up to meet the growing demand for food donations and, since April, have donated more than 77,000 salads to nonprofits like Waste Not and Homeward Bound who are serving people in need.
With the effects of COVID-19 still being felt via continued job loss, limited access to school resources, and a reduction in unemployment benefits, too many people have found themselves on tight budgets and unable to feed their families. Together, Salad and Go, Waste Not, and Homeward Bound are working hard to fill this gap. The funds raised through this campaign will provide meals and shelter to neighbors in need.
“We are thrilled to partner with Homeward Bound and Waste Not. These organizations are working hard to end hunger and homelessness in our community—their work is necessary, compassionate, and truly inspiring. One hundred percent of the donations collected at Salad and Go will help expand their impact and directly support programs making a difference,” says Brandi Hale, head of People and Culture at Salad and Go.
This fundraiser will take place at all Salad and Go locations across the Valley. Go to saladandgo.com for more information.
