On Thursday, May 30th The Caring Place kicks off their first ever Eating for Good Campaign for the summer. All summer long you will see The Caring Place asking the community to plan their meals at designated restaurants. The local establishments will be donating a portion of the sales to The Caring Place Food Pantry. If you like eating out, find out where and when you can do some “eating for good” by staying up to date on The Caring Place Facebook page or website.
“Each year we see an increase of neighbors in need utilizing our Food Pantry,” says Executive Director Ginna O’Connor. “We also know a lot of families are eating out in the busy summer months, so we thought what better way to increase funds in our Food Pantry than to work with our local restaurants.”
Currently, the organization has the following restaurants on the Eating for Good calendar:
May 30, 11am-10pm, Panda Express, 4512 Williams, Georgetown
June 11, 4pm-8pm, Chipotle, 900 N. Austin Ave. Ste 102, Georgetown
June 17, 5pm-9pm, Hat Creek, 201 San Gabriel Village Blvd, Georgetown
June 27, 4pm-8pm, Taco Cabana, 1007 W. University Ave. Ste 2, Georgetown
July 11, 11am-7pm, Cotton Patch, 1021 W. University Ave. Ste 101, Georgetown

July 30, 11am-11pm, BJ’s Brewhouse, 4201 N I-35, Round Rock
