Mimi’s Cafe® Supports Hunger Relief During Hunger Action Month & Year-Round

The casual dining restaurant reports on local hunger relief efforts to date

IRVINE, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2012) – Nearly 50 million people are at risk of going hungry each day in America, and Mimi’s Cafe is committed to helping during Hunger Action Month, and beyond, through its year-round hunger initiatives. In September, Mimi’s® invites you to warm your soul and the hearts of those in need by purchasing delicious “Soup To-Go.” Guests can enjoy one of Mimi’s famous soups for $5 or $6 by the quart container and know that a portion of the proceeds supports local hunger relief efforts.

Mimi’s 145 restaurants support over 100 local nonprofit organizations in their communities. The “Soup To-Go” program has raised more than $66,000 since its launch five months ago. Mimi’s also donates prepared food to these same agencies through Food Donation Connection’s Harvest program. The program has made it possible to provide the equivalent of 185,177 meals. 

“At Mimi’s, we go beyond just making and serving food; we are in the business of caring…and we care not only about our guests but about our local communities,” explains Mark Mears, Mimi’s President and Chief Concept Officer. “That’s why we are committed to helping the one in six Americans at risk of going hungry every day. We are helping put food on tables in our neighborhood during Hunger Action Month and all year long.”

Mimi’s Quarter for a Quart program features delicious soups including Roasted Tomato Basil, Cafe Corn Chowder and French Onion that are perfect for the fall season. Visit a local Mimi’s to enjoy delicious soup and help support those in need.
