Market Street Grill Giving a Hand Up

-2

Market Street Grill owner, Diane Shuman always wanted to give back to her community, and she is doing it one bowl of soup at a time.

“I am very pleased to announce a new endeavor for Market Street Grill,” said Shuman, “With every bowl of soup that you purchase at Market Street Grill, we are contributing a bowl of soup to someone in need.”

Partnering with ‘A Hand Up’ and the Colusa Presbyterian Church, Market Street Grill will be providing nourishing, and wholesome bowls of soup to those in need.

“Looking around our own community, I realized there was a need that fit well with our mission at Market Street Gril,” said Shuman, “For many families living near or below the poverty line in the United States, putting nutritious food on the table can be a huge struggle.”

While less healthy alternatives might be cheaper, but can contribute to childhood obesity and other health issues.

“Healthy eating is one tenant of a well-balanced life.  A person’s physical, mental and social health are connected to diet, and to one another.  Improving one element can have a positive impact on the others.” said Shuman.

In February of 2014, Market Street Grill has been on providing fresh, healthy food for all of its customers.

“With these thoughts lying on my heart, the answer was simple,” said Schuman, “For every bowl of soup purchased, we will provide a bowl of soup to those in need. Every time you purchase a bowl of soup, you’re joining us in that endeavor.”

“We’ll make the same delicious foods that you enjoy in the restaurant,” Schuman added.

According to the US Census Bureau, in 2013 12.5% of Colusa County’s population was at or below the poverty level.

“Right here in our community, the need is real and immediate,” said Schuman.

When asked where she got the idea, Schuman credited the workings of Blak Mycoskie the Founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS and author of the book Start Something That Matters,

“Blak is the person behind the idea of One for One®, a business model that helps a person in need with every product purchased,” said Schuman, “After reading his book Start Something That

Matters, I was inspired to find a way to help.  One for One®.  A simple, yet revolutionary idea, with rippling effects.”

“We want to thank you for your continued business and support, and for joining us in making our community a better place for all,” Schuman added.
