Bob Evans restaurants will match Nov. 14 Farmhouse Feast orders with local 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.

The fully cooked, ready to heat and eat dinner feed eight to 10 and include slow-roasted turkey and hickory-smoked ham, as well as Thanksgiving classics such as bread and celery dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans with ham, macaroni and cheese, cranberry relish, rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and apple pie.

Dinners are also available for smaller groups of four and eight.

Guests can order in person, by calling their local restaurants or online, with pickups available through Nov. 28.

All locations will be open on Thanksgiving Day until 8 p.m. The full breakfast menu will be served until 11 a.m., followed by a limited breakfast menu and Thanksgiving meal for $14.99, with a premium option, including both ham and turkey, for $16.99.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
