WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (October 20, 2017) – TooJay’s, the restaurant known for its generous servings of homemade New York deli favorites, presented a donation of 4 thousand pounds of turkey breast and a check for $5,000 to Feeding South Florida, a food bank serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties.
This donation is a portion of $16,700 that TooJay’s raised and donated to Feeding Florida, a statewide network of Feeding America food banks. The funds were raised through TooJay’s “Too+You” campaign in September, in which $1 of every Peach Tea or Strawberry Lemonade was donated to Feeding Florida. Guests also made donations by rounding up their check throughout the month.
“Feeding Florida is a remarkable organization and TooJay’s is proud to support its mission of eliminating food insecurity in Florida,” said Maxwell Piet, President and CEO of TooJay’s. “We are so proud of our team for their efforts during this program. They take great pride in giving back to our local communities.” TooJay’s team members also got involved by collecting food for the student back pack program, ensuring children have adequate food on weekends and throughout the summer.
Founded in 1981, TooJay’s has grown to 27 restaurants throughout Florida and currently serves guests in Palm Beach and Broward counties, the Treasure Coast, the West Coast of Florida, the Orlando area, The Villages and Polk County.
TooJay’s received the 2016 Best of South Florida Award for Best Deli from the Sun Sentinel, 2017 Dining Award for Best Deli from Orlando Magazine, two Foodie Awards for Best Deli and Best Take-Out from the Orlando Sentinel and is ranked eighth in the country for Family Dining by Consumer Reports.
