The Houston Food Bank stands to benefit from another charitable program in addition to Houston Restaurant Weeks in the month of August.
Apple Texas, a franchise partner of Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar with 65 restaurants in Texas, has launched a "Buy 1, Provide 1" campaign. The company donates funds to area Food Banks for one meal for every regular-price entrée ordered at participating Applebee's during August.
Apple Texas owns Applebee's in the Austin, East Texas, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Waco markets.
"This is a two-for-one in the most charitable and philanthropic way. When a guest buys an entrée in our restaurants, we will provide one meal to a food bank patron in need through our respected Food Bank partnerships every day in August," Chris Dharod, Chief Operating Officer of Apple Texas said in an announcement.
The company is a subsidiary of SSCP Management, owned by Dallas businessman and philanthropist Sunil Dharod.
