The Cheesecake Factory Provides for Those in Need at 11th Annual Thanksgiving Day Feasts
In a show of holiday spirit, 3000 Cheesecake Factory employees will join the company in providing 6000 Thanksgiving meals in 13 cities. The project is called the Salvation Army Thanksgiving Day Feast and is the 11th year for the charitable event, a part of the company's continuing commitment to ending hunger across the nation.
Excerpt: "The Cheesecake Factory’s Thanksgiving Day Feast will take place at 13 Salvation Army locations coast to coast including Anaheim, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Long Island, Los Angeles, Miami, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. On Thanksgiving Day, The Cheesecake Factory will prepare and serve holiday meals to more than 6,000 low-income individuals and families. Guests will be treated to a full-service, sit-down meal that includes freshly roasted turkey with all the trimmings, finished with The Cheesecake Factory’s famous seasonal Pumpkin Cheesecake.
'We are honored to be continuing our Thanksgiving tradition with The Salvation Army,' said David Overton, Founder of The Cheesecake Factory. 'We are so grateful to provide a special holiday meal for so many and are thankful for our thousands of dedicated staff members who have volunteered their time to help us serve those in need.' The annual Salvation Army Thanksgiving Day Feast is one of several commitments that The Cheesecake Factory has made to help end hunger in America. The Cheesecake Factory also participates in its nationwide Harvest Food Donation Program, in which surplus food from the restaurants is regularly donated to local food rescue operations for distribution to soup kitchens and shelters to aid those in need."
