TAMPA – Dec. 3, 2012 – A can is your coupon at Sweet Tomatoes restaurants across the Tampa Bay area during the company’s December food drive to support those in need. Each Sweet Tomatoes guest bringing in canned foods during the month will receive 20 percent off the entire meal. Food collected will be donated to Feeding America Tampa Bay.

With the theme “It’s Better to Give AND Receive” this holiday season, the fresh soup and salad restaurants are orchestrating the food drive to give back to the communities they serve. Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation locations have partnered with over 25 food banks across the country to collect food donations for those in need in their communities.

“Many of our neighbors continue to struggle during these challenging economic times,” said Joan Scharff, VP of Brand & Menu Strategy. “We wanted to do something significant to give back during this season of giving, while also thanking our guests for participating. We hope all of our patrons will join us in this important effort.”

Suggested canned food items include hearty soups, chili, canned meats, canned fish, nuts and seeds, rice and beans, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned juices, pastas and canned sauce and any non-perishable items.
