Erbert & Gerbert’s supports Great Plains Food Bank
Six locally owned Erbert & Gerbert’s restaurants participated in the corporate-wide “Making a Difference” campaign this summer and chose the Great Plains Food Bank as their partner charity. Three restaurants in Fargo, along with restaurants Bismarck and Grand Forks, N.D. and Moorhead, Minn. participated in the “give a dollar, get a dollar” promotion: for every dollar donated, Erbert and Gerbert’s gave patrons a dollar back in Comet Cash to use on their next visit. The restaurants raised a total of $3,873, which they donated today to the Great Plains Food Bank, an agency that helps fight hunger with programs around the state of North Dakota, and Clay County, Minnesota.
“We love being involved in our communities and this charity event was a great way for us to give to a great agency that deals with hunger issues every day,” said Ted Horan, owner and operator of the Fargo, Moorhead, Bismarck, and Grand Forks Erbert & Gerbert’s restaurants. “We have partnered with the Great Plains Food Bank in the past and we are happy to be able to provide nearly $4,000 for their ongoing needs.”
The Great Plains Food Bank can distribute food for four meals for every charitable dollar received, which means the gift received from Erbert & Gerbert’s will provide 15,492 meals to children, seniors, and working parents struggling with hunger throughout the state of North Dakota, and Clay County in Minnesota.
