Our 2019 Give Some Green Donation Total
We’ve finally completed tallying up the numbers and are excited (nay, ecstatic with a touch of giddy) to announce that with YOUR help, we donated 30,806 pounds of produce to local food banks in 2019 through our Give Some Green program! (Woooohoooooo!!!)
With Give Some Green, whenever one of our 12 Signature Salads is ordered, we donate produce to help our neighbors in need! Who exactly do we partner with, you ask? Well… we like to keep our donations hyper local, so we partner with four different food banks, who receive the Give Some Green donation from their closest Hello Bistro location!
Pittsburgh Food Bank
All of the produce donations from our Pittsburgh area locations go directly to our friends at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for their Produce to People program. Every month through this program, 8,000 households receive 30-50 pounds of fresh produce.
State College Food Bank
Our State College location benefits the State College Food Bank! We’re so glad to help them with their mission to provide food security to our neighbors in Centre County.
Cleveland Food Bank
Produce donations from our Beachwood, OH location go directly to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to help support their children’s nutrition initiative. This programming allows the food bank to provide children with food to take home over the weekend and during the summer, when they have limited or no access to the school lunch program.
Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank
Our newest Hello Bistro at Summit Mall in Fairlawn, OH sends their produce donation directly to the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank, which provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties. These member programs operate nearly 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need food.
