Feed Your Belly; Feed Your Community!

by Taylor Smith, CHOP5 Wellness Blogger

As Thanksgiving passes, holiday decorations start to go up almost immediately after. The holiday season is usually a big, busy and exciting time for many people as many special festivities and traditions come along with it. The holiday season is also a time where society puts an extra emphasis on giving to others, which is why it is referred to as the “giving season”. Besides giving thoughtful gifts to your loved ones, the season of giving also provides an opportunity to support philanthropic organizations and help the less fortunate. CHOP5 Salad Kitchen is no stranger to philanthropy as it is in its DNA.

CHOP5’s Mission

CHOP5 Salad Kitchen is not just a restaurant with delicious, fresh and healthy food. It is so much more than that. Part of what is at the core of CHOP5’s mission is making an impact in its local communities. A part of this mission lies in the purpose of CHOP5 itself: to positively influence members of the community to nourish their bodies with nutritious and whole foods that benefit both their physical and mental well-being to ensure they can sustain a healthy, fruitful and happy life.

However, our mission does not stop there. Another part associated with the core of CHOP5’s mission is philanthropic efforts. The desire to promote the welfare of others motivates us to give back in a variety of ways, including supporting local charities, teams and organizations through fundraising and helping solve the hunger problem through CHOP5’s own initiative, known as Full Bellies.

Have you ever wondered why we say “Eat with no regrets”? This is why!

Full Bellies Campaign

CHOP5’s Full Bellies campaign aims at ending hunger in its local communities. For every dish we sell, we donate fresh produce to food pantries and organizations on the front lines of fighting hunger locally. Ultimately, CHOP5’s Full Bellies campaign encompasses the core mission of the brand as its motto is “feed your belly, feed your community”. CHOP5 understands the importance of not only benefiting those who can afford it, but also those who are less fortunate as well.

Why CHOP5?

CHOP5 knows that there are various food options for people to choose from. But CHOP5 also recognizes the need and want for healthy, nutritious options on-the-go. That’s why CHOP5 Salad Kitchen prides itself on catering to the needs of people who desire to live balanced and healthy lifestyles. What’s even more impressive and commendable is CHOP5’s commitment to philanthropy. CHOP5 understands that what you choose to put into your body and fuel your daily responsibilities and activities matter. The brand also understands that who you purchase from matters too. Thus, being a guest of CHOP5 Salad Kitchen means that you are bettering your own life AND the lives of those in need who do not have the same access to fresh produce. Hopefully, this awareness makes you feel even better about your purchase at CHOP5!

How You Can Help

CHOP5 wants to remind you that YOU have the power to create a positive impact. You may ask, how can you make an impact as just an individual? Well, as an individual in the community, you can help by choosing to eat at CHOP5 and spread the word to your friends and family. As giving season rolls around, we also encourage you to remember that every time you eat at CHOP5, you fill a less fortunate neighbor’s belly.

Cheers to full bellies and a warm heart. Happy holidays!
