Didn’t give enough change to The Salvation Army this past December? Step up your game and help give back with Food for Thought Restaurant Week!

Well, look here good people, it’s just around the corner now. The premise is that you go to one of the participating restaurants in Connecticut or Rhode Island for any meal between 1/24-1/30, bring the printed donation coupon, eat out, and 10% of your bill will go to The Salvation Army! That easy, that simple to help out. Continue reading

We’re just saying, but this will make a great holiday present or an early way to prep for Valentine’s Day. Think how nice that’ll be to be prepped and ready to go that far in advance!
