On Saturday, November 11, eating can be a selfless act. Chipotle Mexican Grill and Operation Turkey invite Austin residents to “Cause an Effect” during a day-long fundraising effort.
For one day only, 50 percent of the proceeds from fundraiser sales at all Austin metro-area Chipotle restaurants* (including Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Round Rock and Georgetown) will be donated to Operation Turkey. To participate, mention the fundraiser to the cashier before paying.
Operation Turkey plans to raise $250,000 and feed 50,000 less fortunate people across 16 different cities this year. Every two dollars and fifty cents raised means a person who would have otherwise gone hungry receives a complete Thanksgiving meal loaded with turkey – complete with all the trimmings – and a slice of pumpkin pie.
To locate the nearest Chipotle restaurant, visit Chipotle.com and search by desired zip code.
*Excludes the Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant at 801 Congress Ave., Austin, TX 78701, which is closed on Saturdays.
