Arizona-based Salad and Go doubled down on its mission “to make fresh, nutritious food affordable and convenient for all” by joining Feeding America’s fight to end hunger, according to a company press release.
In honor of Hunger Action Day (Sept. 23), the chain donated 8,600 pounds of fresh romaine, carrots and sweet potatoes on Tuesday to the United Food Bank, a partner of Feeding America.
Hunger Action Day initiatives across the nation spread awareness and encourage action in the fight against hunger and food insecurity.
In addition to this specific Hunger Action Day initiative, Salad and Go will donate nearly 4,000 fresh salads to various partners across Arizona as part of a weekly initiative the brand has been committed to for years.
Founded in 2013 in Gilbert, Arizona, Salad and Go has five locations.
