Bite Squad and Local Restaurants Launch Holiday Food Drive in Greenville

Bite Squad Collecting for Holiday Food Drive

With soaring food prices pushing food banks to the brink of empty shelves this holiday season, the popular delivery service Bite Squad is asking for your help. Bite Squad has announced it is teaming with local restaurants to collect non-perishable food donations to help feed families in need during the holidays.

Starting today, Tuesday, November 22, items can be dropped off in the donation bins at each participating restaurant until Christmas Week during their regular business hours. Bite Squad will then deliver all the collected food items to a local food bank.

Demand has spiked at food banks and pantries around the country, including here in Greenville, with food-distributing organizations in need of food more than ever. They are feeling the pressure of high food costs, which has resulted in more people needing help to feed their families.

Bite Squad has partnered with these area restaurants for the month-long drive:
• Thai Jing (3795 E North St., Greenville)
• India Palace (59 Liberty Ln., Greenville)
• Pete’s of Simpsonville (811 Northeast Main Street, Simpsonville)
• Mellow Mushroom Downtown (1 Augusta St., Greenville)
• Bangkok Tokyo (599 Haywood Rd Greenville)

The most-needed food bank items include proteins (canned tuna, dried or canned beans, soup, peanut butter), grains (high-fiber cereal, oatmeal, pasta, rice), canned fruits and vegetables, and milk (shelf-stable, evaporated and dry).

Those donating food or money will receive a coupon code for five dollars off their next order with Bite Squad. You will also be placed in a drawing to win hundreds of dollars in credits for future orders.

“There are so many people this year who unfortunately need help putting food on their tables,” said Tommy Angelle of Bite Squad. “We know the need for food assistance is increasing to levels rarely seen before, but with the help of our great restaurants – and the kindness of our customers – we’ll give a little assistance to those who really need it this holiday season.”

Bite Squad operates an online ordering technology platform, providing delivery, carryout and dine-in options. Bite Squad connects local restaurants and grocery stores to diners in underserved U.S. markets.
