If you’re a patron of Boston-area restaurants, you may be encountering some compelling new menu choices.
This fall, GBFB launched a new program called The Helping Menu, to coincide with Hunger Action Month. Participating restaurants are adding a simple item—an appetizer or entrée—to their menus that offer an opportunity to donate directly to GBFB. Menu selections might include ‘Twice Baked Goodness,’ or ‘Scratch-made Support,’ with descriptions such as, “Somewhere, someone is missing a meal. Add this to your order and you are making a donation directly to The Greater Boston Food Bank.”
Guests simply order the appetizer or entrée, and that item is added to their check as a donation to GBFB, collected through the restaurant’s POS terminal—a simple, impactful way for restaurants to support GBFB—and with no out-of-pocket expense to the restaurant.
“Feeding people and giving back to our community is a key ingredient to our life’s work.”
