You all know I love companies that give back and Bob Evans is doing just that this holiday season
Bob Evans Restaurant is giving back this holiday season! In America, an estimated three million households are food insecure – that amounts to one in six people who lack the nutritious food needed to live a healthy life. Bob Evans Farms is pledging to continue the fight to end hunger through its Hunger Free Communities campaign.
Farmhouse Feast® Donation Program
Starting as a grassroots effort in 2010 by restaurant employees, Bob Evans is once again offering the Farmhouse Feast donation program. Thanks to generous donations from guests, more than 5,300 Farmhouse Feasts were purchased and delivered by our employees to local charities last year. Now through Dec. 25, guests are invited to join Bob Evans in helping to make the holidays brighter for area families by making $1, $5 or $10 donations in restaurant or online. The Bob Evans Farmhouse Feast meal is available in two sizes to satisfy families large and small, serving up to eight or four, and comes with a choice of a slow-roasted whole boneless turkey breast or sliced boneless ham, bread and celery dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, buttered sweet corn, green beans with ham, cranberry relish, rolls, and a pumpkin pie with whipped topping, providing a complete holiday meal for families in need. You can order one online now for your family to enjoy at http://www.bobevans.com/onlineordering. When ordering, be sure to make a donation to help put a meal on tables of hungry families around your community this season.
Fresh Produce Initiative
Another way Bob Evans gave back this year was at the grand opening of their new corporate campus in New Albany, Ohio on Oct. 26. They made a $50,000 contribution to support Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s fresh food initiative. An estimated three to six billion pounds of fresh produce grown each year in America does not make it to market. At the request of Feeding America, Mid-Ohio Foodbank launched a national initiative to get more of that produce from farmers’ fields to the tables of America’s hungry families. Bob Evans Food Products also donated sausage that equated to 18,000 meals to the Foodbank, which serves 20 counties in central and eastern Ohio.
We got to try the Farmhouse Feast with turkey. You can get the feast for 4 or 8 people. The servings were large and we were so impressed with how well everything was packaged and how great it tasted! The turkey needed to be heated for 90 minutes and everything else we reheated in the microwave. The mashed potatoes were really fluffy and the corn was rich with butter. My favorite was the green beans with ham and Jamie really liked the stuffing! It also came with dinner rolls, a pumpkin pie and a pumpkin bread! It was a great dinner for the holidays and one I would not hesitate to order in future years!
I received a sample Farmhouse Feast to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
