Roti's Holiday Promo Helps Educate Underprivileged Kids

During the 2012 holiday season, it is estimated that $28.79 billion will be spent on gift cards, according to the National Retail Foundation. That’s why Roti Mediterranean Grill, known for dishing healthy Mediterranean cuisine, is partnering with Common Threads, an organization dedicated to educating underprivileged children about healthy eating. This year, Roti is donating a percentage of their gift card purchases in December to help Common Threads raise funds and promote healthy eating among America’s youth, making it a rewarding offering for both patrons and the community.  

For every $200 gift card purchased at Roti, 10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Common Threads as they teach underprivileged children how to cook affordable, healthy meals. Classes will be taught by professional chefs to help foster an appreciation for diversity and wellness through the healthy cooking of cuisines from around the world.
 
Bill Post, industry veteran and CEO of Roti says, “We are proud to celebrate our continued partnership with Common Threads. It’s a great opportunity to give back to an organization whose mission is so closely aligned with our commitment to serving nutritious and affordable food options. This holiday season, we are grateful to be involved with such a wonderful cause.” 
 
Roti’s holiday gift card promotion will begin in all stores on December 5, 2012, and will run through the end of December.
