Eat to Feed the Hungry - Dine out to help a family in need

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) has partnered with The Grid Agency to host the 2nd annual Eat to Feed the Hungry. During March 10-16, members of the community are encouraged to participate in a good cause by simply checking-in via social media at participating local restaurants. Diners can enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert at one (or more) of the following restaurants to support SFBFS:
* Mulvaney's B& L
* The Red Rabbit Restaurant & Bar 
* The Firehouse Restaurant 
* Ten22  
* Lucca Restaurant & Bar
* Ella Dining Room & Bar 
* Nopolitos Southwestern Cafe  
* Miyagi Bar & Sushi
* Golden Bear 
* Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Company 
* River City Brewing Company 
* Ink Eats and Drinks 
* Hoppy Brewing Company

The goal of this fun, local event is to remind Sacramento diners that SFBFS, the local charity that operates Run to Feed the Hungry, serves thousands of families year 'round. Thanksgiving is an understandable time of year to give thanks and support families in need. But what about March? Sacramentans can keep their support going throughout the year by enjoying a meal and providing a meal for another family.

There is no purchase necessary to participate in this event, but diners can make a contribution to SFBFS to support a family in need! For every $10 donation, diners will receive one entry to win a $50 gift card to one of the participating restaurants. As a thank you for a $50 contribution, diners will receive a Run to Feed the Hungry beanie, a donation of $100 earns the diner a Run to Feed the Hungry nylon back pack and as a thank you for a donation of $250 or more, the diner will receive a Run to Feed the Hungry travel mug and gloves. Check out photos of prizes here.
To increase their chances of winning a gift card, participants can snap a photo of their family enjoying a meal during Eat to Feed the Hungry wearing your favorite Run to Feed the Hungry shirt then post it to SFBFS' Facebook page. Each photo posted from a different dining experience will equal one more entry to win a gift card!

Wear your favorite Run to Feed the Hungry shirt from any year out to dinner next week. It’s an easy way to support SFBFS’ mission and help feed a family in need.
