Barberitos Donates to Poverty is Real Benefit Concert

Barberitos is donating to Poverty Is Real’s second annual benefit concert for the Athens-based organization Whatever It Takes. Last year’s concert was extremely successful. This year, on December 7, 2012, the 40 Watt Club in downtown Athens, Georgia will host a concert featuring The Interns, The District Attorneys, Hope For Agoldensummer, and Dave Marr.

The proceeds from the concert will benefit Whatever It Takes, an Athens-based non-profit organization working to break the cycle of poverty locally through education. The money raised for this Poverty Is Real event will go toward their goal of ensuring that by 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, every child in Athens-Clarke County will be on course to graduate from a post-secondary education. 
 
“We are glad to be a part of this awesome event that gives back to those in need in our own community here in Athens. We strive to serve our communities in more than one way.” says Vice President of BFI, Elizabeth Dale. 
 
Barberitos is a quick service restaurant offering fresh, Tex-Mex cuisine including a variety of burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, and nachos made to order.
 
Committed to serving “farm fresh” food, Barberitos serves all natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily.  Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as is the high quality cuts of steak, and choice ground beef. Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with freezers or microwaves as all food is prepared fresh, with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation. Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings are made from scratch each day.
 
Each menu offering is prepared at the time it is ordered right in front of the customer. Barberitos' “7 Under 7” menu features seven items each under seven grams of fat including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads.
 
Barberitos provides full-service catering ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, salad, nacho, or fajita bar that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.  
 
Barberitos has 30 restaurant franchise locations in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, and Florida.
