Let’s go orange! For the fifth year, IntoxiKate.com is teaming up with Feeding Westchester and area restaurants to “Go Orange” for Hunger Action Month this September. The goal? To raise awareness about those who are food insecure in Westchester County and educate the community about ways they can help support the county’s leading nonprofit hunger-relief organization.
Starting September 1st, over 30 restaurants from Yonkers to Chappaqua to Port Chester will participate in “IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange.” Foodies can feast on a range of orange-inspired dishes whipped up by our area’s top chefs—from seasonal staples, to gluten-free and vegetarian options, in both sweet and savory categories. For a list of participating restaurants and dishes, please visit: IntoxiKate.com/EatingforOrange
IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange was created in 2017 as a way to create awareness around ways we can all help Feeding Westchester with their many efforts. It was also a strategic, easy way restaurants could support their community.
Those hungry to help are asked to visit participating restaurants, try the orange-themed dishes, and help spread awareness by sharing their experience on social media using the following hashtags: #eatingfororange #intoxikate #feedingwestchester #hungeractionmonth
For every post tagged, Schlientz will donate $1 to the organization, up to $500. NEW THIS YEAR: Diners who participate will also be entered to win gift certificates from participating restaurants.
