Our Give Some Green Program
Here’s how it works… YOU order one of our Signature Salads (like our BBQ Chicken Salad) and WE donate produce to our local food bank! Because of you, our wonderful guests, we’ve donated a total of 3,556 pounds of produce so far in 2021!
All our produce donations go directly to the local food bank in the community where our restaurants reside. Since our Hello Bistro footprint covers a lot of ground, there are four different food banks that benefit from our program:
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.
