Spring has sprung and, despite lingering snow storms, the birds are chirping and tufts of grass are beginning to find their way out of the deep snow piles. The arrival of spring means a lot of things, but to us it means the reammergance of off-season specials… A time of year when those who like to dine out have a opportunity to give back to the community by dining out, buying one entrée and getting a second for $2. 100% of the money from the second entrée will be donated to a weekly featured non-profit organization.
Get to know the beneficiaries of this spring’s off-season specials in the continuation of our Beyond the Plate series.
The first non-profit in our five-week lineup is Spread the Love Commission, which will receive all the money raised during the week of April 8 to April 15.
“Spread the Love Commission is a national 501c3 working hard to bring the most critical supplies, advocacy and connection to those facing our homeless crisis in the U.S.”
More than simply giving out supplies, Spread the Love Commission collaborates with individuals and businesses to organize high quality and essential items that make a difference for those facing housing insecurities and homelessness. Beyond the reaches of the Jackson area, Spread the Love Commission has distributed supplies from Wyoming all the way to Miami, FL. Their most frequent donations are delivered to Salt Lake City, “where the need is significant, and homelessness is often criminalized.”
Education is another component of Spread the Love. The organization uses the insight they gain and the lessons they learn from their experiences to help educate other community organizations on how to address housing insecurity both locally and nationally.
During the week of April 8, we invite you to dine out at Fine Dining restaurants and take advantage of great dining deals, all while raising money for this incredible organization.
