Daphne's California Greek Launches "Spoon It Forward" Program with Feeding America Affiliates in Southern California

Sales of Daphne's Lemon Chicken Soup on "Souper Sundays" in February Will Go Toward Feeding the Hungry

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Daphne's California Greek, with its unique menu that fuses Mediterranean, Greek and California flavors in 50 restaurants in California, Colorado and Arizona, has launched "Spoon It Forward," a new charitable program to support three Feeding America affiliates in Southern California.


For every cup of its popular Lemon Chicken Soup sold on "Souper Sundays" in February, Daphne's will donate the equivalent dollar amount to Feeding America San Diego, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

Daphne's hopes to raise as much as $5,000 to help feed the hungry and disadvantaged in Southern California.  The price of a cup of Daphne's Lemon Chicken Soup is $1.69, which will cover the cost of eight full meals through Feeding America.

"Daphne's 'Spoon It Forward' program will help Feeding America San Diego and our partners in Orange County and Los Angeles feed families facing hunger throughout Southern California," said Jennifer Gilmore, executive director of Feeding America San Diego. "More than 50 million Americans experience hunger on a daily basis, and we are so grateful for companies such as Daphne's, who are stepping up and helping make a difference."
