we are going to gather as much non-perishable food as we can and deliver it to the Capital Area Food Bank
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
The company, launched in 2006, has delivered 75,000 gourmet meals to customers in the Austin area from restaurants that would not otherwise provide delivery.
The company – providing food delivery for more than 80 restaurants in Austin and San Antonio - will soon start helping Central Texans in need by giving their customers a discount for donating canned food items that will be delivered to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas.
Dine on Demand co-founder Josh Jones says he already had an interest in helping the impressive hunger relief organization before recent wildfires made needs facing the agency even more pressing.
“With a little research we found that the Capital Area Food Bank was in need and contributing canned foods to the relief effort,” Jones said. “So we are going to gather as much non-perishable food as we can and deliver it to the Capital Area Food Bank. You will get $2 off your delivery for giving more than two cans.” To contribute, got to http://www.dineondemand.com or call 512-973-0333 (coupon code: fooddrive)
Wildfires have destroyed more than 1,500 Central Texas homes in recent weeks, according to Texas Forest Service reports..
The food bank is in its 30th year of operation. In 2010, the organization distributed 25 million pounds of food to partners in 21 Central Texas counties, its website reports.
