Kerbey Lane Cafe will host a “Hot Cakes for Hunger” fundraiser at all seven of its locations July 16-29, with all proceeds from its specialty pancakes benefiting Central Texas Food Bank. Kerbey Lane will also donate pancake mix to CTFB for every dollar of proceeds from its specialty pancakes.
Kerbey Lane is a longtime supporter of CTFB (formerly Capital Area Food Bank of Texas). Since 2010, Kerbey Lane has supported the food bank with annual food drives, cash donations, and company-wide volunteer days.
In 2016, Kerbey Lane’s donations provided 11,948 meals for Central Texans in need and sorted 7,650 pounds of food on its team member volunteer day at CTFB.
Amanda Kuda, director of marketing, says: “We’re excited to continue our support for the Central Texas Food Bank with this year’s Hot Cakes for Hunger campaign, and we hope our guests will come in extra hungry to help Central Texans in need who know the feeling of hunger all too well.”
Kerbey Lane serves three specialty pancakes each week, including one vegan and one gluten-free option.
During the week of July 18, the specialty pancakes are Strawberry Banana, Vegan Strawberry Banana, and Gluten Free Vanilla. During the week of July 25, the specialty pancakes are S’mores (chocolate, marshmallow, and grahams), Vegan Cinnamon Peach, and Gluten Free Cinnamon Peach.
To celebrate the completion of the fundraiser, dozens Kerbey team members will volunteer at CTFB near the end of summer, and will also present a check for the proceeds of its Hot Cakes For Hunger campaign drive.
“We focus our support for CTFB in July each year because volunteers and donations are most needed during the food bank’s busy summer months when children don’t have access to free or reduced-price school lunches and electricity bills are high,” says Kuda.
Kerbey Lane’s specialty pancakes will be available at their regular prices and quantities during the Hot Cakes for Hunger drive.
