Eat at Chili's Today Through Thursday, Help Roadrunner & Other New Mexico Food Banks

There are 16 Chili's® Grill and Bar restaurants in New Mexico, and every one of them is donating a portion of its sales to its local food bank over the next four days. This is part of the restaurant's campaign Give Back Days for Hunger, which runs from today until Thursday, February 20.

So how about it? Order the Santa Fe Chicken wrap at the restaurant in Española and help Santa Fe's food bank, The Food Depot. Or you can dine on Margarita Grilled Chicken at Chili's locations in  Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Carlsbad, Hobbs, Las Cruces, Los Lunas, Rio Rancho and Roswell and support Roadrunner Food Bank (which has locations in both Albuquerque and Las Cruces).

If you happen to be in Clovis  for lunch or dinner on one of the four days, you can eat your meal at the local Chili's and support the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico.  Or perhaps you reside or are traveling to Farmington. A portion of your meal will go to support the ECHO Food Bank in that community.

Each of these Chili’s locations will donate 15% of your check’s total to the local food bank.  You must, however, make sure to let your server know that you are dining there to help as part of the Give Back Days for Hunger campaign.  You can either give the server a flier (which you can Print Here), or simply mention the Give Back Days for Hunger campaign.

Your participation is very important to each of these food banks. According to Roadrunner Food Bank, every dollar that you raise helps that organization distribute more than five meals.

"This partnership is a wonderful example of local businesses joining in to help solve hunger, said Melody Wattenbarger, president and CEO of Roadrunner Food Bank. “We are hopeful our supporters will take the time to visit a Chili’s during one of these four days. They can enjoy a meal and at the same time take an active role in our work helping to supply food to hungry people across the state.”
