101 Ways to Give Back

It may come as a surprise to you that the minds behind EatStreet are preoccupied with more than just the quick alleviation of your hunger pangs. While providing you with the simplest route to local takeout and delivery may be our bread and butter, we also like to dish out a more common, less edible form of currency – charitable checks.

When our three co-founders forged a fledgling website in 2010 called “BadgerBites,” they also formed our Give Back Program, wherein EatStreet promised to donate 5% of its profits to local non-profit and student organizations. We let you decide where the donation goes. Every time you place an order on our website, you are presented with a list of our partnering organizations. You then choose who receives the 5% of profits from your order.

With the help of our locally-based Brand Managers and Brand Ambassadors, we’ve also sponsored countless community events and hosted special fundraisers where we’ve donated 100% of our weekly profits. Check out a few examples from the past year:

11/26/12 – 100% of weekly profits from EatStreet – Richmond aided Hurricane Sandy Relief via the American Red Cross

12/10/12 – 25% of weekly profits from EatStreet – Milwaukee purchased holiday gifts for children in need via The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee

4/29/13 – 50% of weekly profits from EatStreet – Iowa City supported Autism research and advocacy via Autism Speaks (with the help of Alpha XI Delta)

5/2/13 – 100% of weekly profits from EatStreet – Raleigh supported injured service members via ReMIND

The Give Back Program is part of a larger EatStreet initiative to stimulate local commerce and promote community awareness. With one trip to our website, you’ll likely discover dozens of restaurants you’ve never even heard of. Think of all the delicious eating experiences just waiting to be had! We want you to explore all food options in your city and we’ll even nudge you in the right direction with coupons and specials.  When you place your order, you can read the bios of our community partners and visit their websites for involvement opportunities.

EatStreet currently partners with 101 non-profit and student organizations across the country. Visit www.EatStreet.com today to learn more about our partnering organizations in your community.
