FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- New restaurant b.good Fairfield is holding its grand opening on Saturday from 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
This also marks the beginning of an important relationship between b.good and local permanent community partner, food rescue organization Community Plates.
Community Plates will receive 15 percent of all proceeds from b.good Fairfield's opening day to continue expansion of its food rescue program in Fairfield County. In addition, b.good provides its customers with ongoing opportunities and reminders to help Community Plates fight hunger locally, using its online b.good app.
b.good owner Steve Hourihan said, “b.good Fairfield is honored to support the great work of Community Plates as our partner in the fight against hunger in Fairfield County. b.good is here to revolutionize the way Fairfield defines fast food by providing wholesome, real food made by people, not factories. Community Plates has addressed local food insecurity with that same passion. We both strive to reduce our environmental footprint, make nutrition obtainable and remember the people who make and receive our meals.”
Community Plates Executive Director Kevin Mullins commented, “We are thrilled to have been designated as b.good Fairfield’s Community Partner. Our philosophies are in perfect sync with each other, and this unique type of partnership will help us continue to fund our food rescue efforts in Fairfield County."
Opening day will include music, giveaways and real food, served fast.
Founded in 2004, b.good is a Boston-based fast-food chain that focuses on fresh, farm-to-table burgers (beef, turkey, chicken, or veggie); hand-cut fries; seasonal salads; and smoothies and other local drinks.
Community Plates was founded in January 2011 and is committed to ending American food insecurity through direct-transfer food rescue. Established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit food-rescue platform, Community Plates is focused on transferring healthy, usable food to where it can help feed those in need.
This volunteer-driven, technology-fueled process coordinates with restaurants, grocers, bakeries, caterers and other food-service organizations that have foods destined to be thrown away and delivers the food to soup kitchens, food pantries and other hunger-relief organizations who serve food-insecure individuals and families.
b.good Fairfield is at 1460 Post Road, Fairfield.
