A can is your coupon at Souplantation restaurants across the Inland Empire during the company’s December food drive to support those in need. Each Souplantation guest bringing in canned foods during the month will receive 20 percent off the entire meal. Food collected will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank serving Riverside & San Bernardino Counties.
With the theme “It’s Better to Give AND Receive” this holiday season, the fresh soup and salad restaurants are orchestrating the food drive to give back to the communities they serve. Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes locations have partnered with over 25 food banks across the country to collect food donations for those in need in their communities. Second Harvest Food Bank serving Riverside and San Bernardino counties is the largest food bank serving the Inland Empire. Second Harvest Food Bank distributes over 25 million pounds of food annually, which is enough food to feed over 400,000 hungry people each month throughout the Inland Empire.
“Many of our neighbors continue to struggle during these challenging economic times,” said Joan Scharff, VP of Brand & Menu Strategy. “We wanted to do something significant to give back during this season of giving, while also thanking our guests for participating. We hope all of our patrons will join us in this important effort.”
Suggested canned food items include hearty soups, chili, canned meats, canned fish, nuts and seeds, rice and beans, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned juices, pastas and canned sauce and any non-perishable items.
