Spread the Love Food Drive with Bon Me and Rosie’s Place

What the world needs now is love. . .

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the past week-and-a-half in despair, rage, disbelief, shaken to the core (and, if I am honest, wanting to shake people by the shoulders until some sense is knocked into them). I still feel that way, but in an effort to shine a little light back into the world am trying to find ways to be a helper. Sharing the below food drive information is a good start, as it’s a delicious initiative to help local women. If I can use this blog to highlight ways we can help and get that information to a few hundred or thousand more people, I think it’s worth keeping around.

Please feel free to spread the word and the love!

“Spread the Love” Food Drive with Bon Me and Rosie’s Place

Local Food Truck and Restaurant Company announce Valentine’s Benefit for Women’s Shelter

Bon Me, a food truck and restaurant company, is encouraging customers to “Spread the Love” for Valentine’s Day by holding a food drive at all their locations between February 1 and 13 benefiting Rosie’s Place, the oldest women’s shelter in the country. The food company will be rewarding those who donate with free “Extra Meat” on their entrees.

Bon Me’s mission is to make a positive impact in the communities they call home by providing living wages to their employees and by supporting local organizations.

The company’s commissary is located just blocks away from Rosie’s Place, a women’s shelter located in the South End neighborhood of Boston.

“We feel that as a successful local food company, we should find a way to help feed those less fortunate,” said Owner and Co-Founder Patrick Lynch.

“We are very thankful for the ability to give back to Rosie’s Place, a historic shelter in our neighborhood.”

Additionally, Bon Me has a proud history of female empowerment within the company, with over 50% of management and supervisors being female. Rosie’s Place makes a logical recipient for a local food drive.

The list of acceptable donation items are as follows:

Canned fruit (no added sugars), Canned vegetables (low sodium), Canned soups, stews, sauces (low sodium), Canned tuna and chicken in water, Dry beans, Peanut butter, Brown rice, Whole wheat pasta, Oatmeal packets, Cereal (corn flakes, Cheerios, Special K, Raisin Bran), Granola, 100% juice, Shelf-stable milk.

Customers who wish to donate food and receive free “Extra Meat” on their order are able to do so at any Bon Me location, truck or restaurant, between February 1 and 13.

All donations will be delivered to Rosie’s Place in the week following.
