Last Friday, restaurant chain Salad and Go donated 10,300 pounds of romaine, carrots, sweet potatoes and chicken to the North Texas Food Bank.  Company officials say the donation was a “doubling down” of its mission to make fresh and nutritious food affordable and convenient for all.

The food bank is a partner of Feeding America, the nonprofit organization that spearheaded Hunger Action Day on Sept. 23. The day of action is part of Hunger Action Month, which is dedicated to spreading awareness and encouraging action against hunger and food insecurity.

Salad and Go has around 30 locations across the DFW area, including one in Plano near the intersection of Coit Road and 15th Street.  The company donates nearly 4,000 fresh salads per week to various organizations as part of its hunger-fighting initiative.
