“The North Texas Food Bank salutes Sweet Tomatoes for helping address the issue of food insecurity in North Texas,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “Their extremely generous donation will help us provide nutritious meals to hungry children, families and seniors in our area.”
Sweet Tomatoes seeks to be a vital and contributing part of each community in which it operates. To reach this goal, restaurants offer a “Fun-Raiser” program through which charities, churches, schools, athletic teams, scout troops and other non-profit organizations may raise funds by hosting in-store events. The restaurants assist in marketing the non-profit’s event by creating master flyers for distribution and promotion.
