b.good is a great mini-chain that has just made its way into Connecticut with an opening in Fairfield and in the heart of Greenwich. They have already partnered with Community Plates to help provide meals and food for those in need . . . and now they are helping out another local business in need: Kids in Crisis.
Oddly enough, Kids in Crisis is in . . . crisis. Due to changes in state funding, they are now in bad shape and need help to fulfill their mission. And, it’s not chump change, either; it’s serious stuff. All in, they received a cut in funding of a staggering $750,000. Those funds need to be replenished however possible through donations and support so that this essential shelter for children can continue to help struggling children from infants all the way to teenagers.
That’s where b.good located at 342 Greenwich Avenue comes in. They are hosting a “Pay-what-you-can” benefit night at their shop on January 28 from 5-9. Basically, order your food and what you pay will go directly to Kids in Crisis! Our suggestions? Order a burger (The Joanie is killer good, btw) or a salad bowl and be sure to add in a milkshake (or a smoothie) or one of their custom sodas/seltzers. Then, think with your heart when you pay. They aren’t charging you for the food, so let that money ride and help out any way that you can!
