This coming Sunday, Groundhog's Day, is your chance to kick hunger to the curb and all you have to do is enjoy a meal out.
More restaurants than ever are joining forces on Sunday, February 2 to help feed the hungry through the Hunger Takes No Holiday campaign. It's a great event donating 15 percent of all food sales to the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, helping thousands in need throughout the region.
This will be the fifth year Grizzly's Restaurant in Superior, Wisconsin (3405 Tower Ave, Superior, WI 54880) will help the Hunger Takes No Holiday campaign knock out hunger. Last year servers even donated all of their tips to help fight hunger.
This year more locations and restaurants are joining the fight. Grizzly's Superior location is joined by both of Grizzly's Duluth locations in Canal Park (310 S Lake Ave Duluth, MN) and up by the Miller Hill Mall (1722 Miller Trunk Hwy
Also joining in the fundraising fun for the first time this year is the 7 West Taphouse in downtown Duluth (7 W Superior St, Duluth, MN 55802).
All you need to do to help is head out to one of these four restaurants for lunch or dinner this Sunday and 15 percent of food sales will be donated to Hunger Takes No Holiday which then goes to Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank.
Hunger Takes No Holiday has raised about $75,000 that has provided about 375,000 meals to Superior and Douglas County, according to organizer Don Leighton. All the money raised in Duluth this year will stay in Duluth.
