About b.good, growing chain of farm to table ‘real food fast’ healthy burger+ more joints:
“It wasn’t until our crazy family members started running the Marathon in giant burger suits that we realized we actually had the power to make a real impact. (Incredibly, over 82 running burgers have raised more than $146,000 for charities over the last 8 years.) Inspired by what we’ve accomplished with those passionate customers, we decided to start a foundation based on the principles they personify. So, this is funded by the grass-roots and innovative efforts that we undertake together with our customers. And it’s designed so that the people who raise the money decide who gets the money…The mission of the b.good Family Foundation is to use micro-grants to help inspired individuals improve their communities. We believe that the most sustainable, impactful changes are the ones communities design for themselves. So, we give directly to individuals looking to improve their neighborhoods. Then we put the final funding decisions up for a community vote by the b.good family and their network.”
