Two Greek restaurants, one in Michigan and the other in Florida, organized charity dinners for people in need by offering Greek food specialties and raising funds and donations for their cause.
The Delhi Café in Michigan will be holding its third annual food bank fundraiser on January 22, and its owners John and Glekera Christofilis will keep their restaurant open from 1 to 4 pm that day. The donations raised during the event will go to Holt Food Bank, which offers food to the less privileged people of the local community.
The Spyro Grille in Tallahassee, Florida, has already held its own food bank in cooperation with the non-profit Dishing Out Hope organization, which offers about 9,000 free meals per month.
The restaurant’s 38-year-old owner, Dennis Flint, has been working for six months now as a volunteer at Dishing Out Hope, serving people in need with food on a daily basis.
On January 8, Dennis Flint and Dishing Out Hope celebrated the restaurant’s and non-profit’s first year of cooperation, offering Greek food to the needy for free.
