(PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Plates Neighborhood Kitchen, the newest restaurant in Glenwood South, is teaming up with Stop Hunger Now to turn November 28th into a hassle-free Thanksgiving for people with a philanthropic spirit but who don’t want to cook. Plates Chefs Sam Bradford, Steve Day and their former Chef at the Umstead, Jon Blackley, will be teaming to present a memorable holiday meal.
Dubbed "Plates for the World," the one-day special promotion includes a gourmet Thanksgiving dinner available as take-out or served at the restaurant located at 301 Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh, NC. Proceeds from the day's sales will be donated to Stop Hunger Now to support their mission to end world hunger.
“There is a logical partnership between Plates Kitchen and Stop Hunger Now,” says Stephen Day, owner of Plates Neighborhood Kitchen owner. “One of the prevailing themes of our restaurant is providing a culinary journey that is globally inspired and locally produced, much like the ingredients for Stop Hunger Now meals that are locally sourced and packaged in the U.S. and then distributed around the world.”
Stop Hunger Now is shipping one million meals to the Philippines as part of ongoing disaster relief operations in response to the devastation as a result of Typhoon Haiyan. The first container with 285,120 meals will depart this week and additional containers will be shipped over the next few weeks. In addition to meals, Stop Hunger Now is organizing the shipment of other critical supplies such as medicine, medical supplies, water filters and hygiene kits. The Stop Hunger Now Malaysia affiliate also is providing assistance to the storm-ravaged area.
Founded in 1998, Stop Hunger Now has delivered aid and disaster relief supplies in the form of food, medical supplies, clothing, school supplies, and more to thousands of disaster victims and other hungry and vulnerable people around the world. More than 300,000 volunteers have packaged the highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring, and 21 essential vitamins and minerals during popular community-supported Stop Hunger Now meal packaging events.
The "Plates for the World" Thanksgiving prix fixe menu includes your choice of 2 meats, 2 sides and choice of dessert plus fresh yeast rolls, cranberry compote, coffee, tea or fountain drink for $39.00/person (tax & gratuity included). $30 from each meal eaten in the restaurant will be donated to Stop Hunger Now.
