Minneapolis-based Bite Squad has announced an expansion of the service in the southern suburbs of its home market, as well as a corresponding charitable partnership with Second Harvest Heartland—Minnesota’s largest hunger-relief organization.
Bite Squad has initiated a FundRazr campaign to raise funds for Second Harvest Heartland to help support people in the local community who face hunger every day. The campaign runs from July 5 through July 19, 2018.
“We’re in the business of feeding our customers every day, but we know that we often drive right past families who may not know where their next meal is coming from,” said Craig Key, CMO of Bite Squad. “Working with Second Harvest Heartland to help fight hunger in our own backyard is an important part of how we give back, while we launch forward in our expansion into the southern suburbs.”
Bite Squad’s FundRazr campaign, “Help Bite Squad Feed the Hungry,” asks area residents to donate funds to Second Harvest Heartland, and in turn the company pledges to donate one dollar for every donation received. Second Harvest Heartland can provide three meals for the hungry with every $1 donated.
“We’re continually amazed at the way our community rallies to fight hunger in the heartland,” said Rob Zeaske, CEO of Second Harvest Heartland. “For every one of us struggling with hunger, there are ten of us able to help, and that’s exactly what Bite Squad is demonstrating through this campaign. We are grateful for their support, and the support of their customers.”
When new customers in the new Bite Squad delivery areas of Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville, Bloomington, Savage and Rosemount donate to the Help Bite Squad Feed the Hungry campaign, they will receive special offers to try the food delivery service, ranging from free delivery, to $10 or $15 off, to a $40 Bite Squad gift card.
Bite Squad’s expansion to the southern suburbs is an extension of their 2017 expansion to the city’s western suburbs. The new service area offers delivery from 60+ area restaurants, including local favorites such as Mediterranean Cruise Cafe, Hiko Sushi, Ze’s Diner, Coconut Thai, India Palace, Shogun Sushi and Hibachi, Burger Jones and Fiesta Cancun Mexican Grill & Bar, as well as national chains like: Chick-fil-A, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and Subway. Delivery is available within a seven mile radius of participating restaurant partners.
Customers in the Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville, Bloomington, Savage and Rosemount delivery areas can order Bite Squad seven days a week, from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Orders can be placed on the Bite Squad app or website, www.bitesquad.com. Delivery fees start at $2.99.
