The Belden Village Chipotle is holding a fundraiser from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday for Meals on Wheels. To participate in the fundraiser, mention Meals on Wheels to the cashier or show him or her a flyer from Meals on Wheels (click here for the flyer)
"At the end of the night, 50 percent of the proceeds raised during the four-hour time frame will be donated to Meals on Wheels," said Kara White, associate marketing specialist for Meals on Wheels. "The money will help us continue our mission of keeping nutritionally at-risk individuals healthy, happy and independent of extended care facilities by delivering meals to those homebound individuals," she said.
White said the partnership is a great fit because Chipotle also believes in making nutritional food accessible to everyone.
"Chipotle donated food for our volunteers who were working our annual fundraiser in November. A few weeks later, they reached out to see if we would want to participate in this fundraiser. This is a new type of fundraiser for us and we are excited to be a part of it and to work with Chipotle. We hope it pulls in many more supporters and are grateful to Chipotle for the opportunity," White said.
Chipotle’s menu includes burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients and prepared using classic cooking methods. Food is served in an interactive style allowing the customer to get exactly what they want. Chipotle started in 1993 in Denver and now has 2,200 restaurants.
