Bob Evans matches ‘feast’ orders with food bank donations
In an effort to extend the spirit of hospitality across communities with Bob Evans restaurants, the chain is inviting guests to help support local families in need this holiday season.
For the first 100 people who order a Farmhouse Feast online on Nov. 14, one Farmhouse Feast will be donated to patrons’ local food banks.
“People look to us to be a big part of their Thanksgiving celebrations, whether that’s joining us in the restaurants on that day or serving a Farmhouse Feast to their loved ones at home. We serve Thanksgiving meals all year, so in a lot of ways, our brand is synonymous with the holiday,” says Bob Holtcamp, chief marketing officer for Bob Evans Restaurants.
“We’re a big part of our communities during the holiday season, so it was important to us to find a way to give back,” he adds.
Bob Evans knew better than anyone the importance of hospitality.
