The “Make it a Habit to Support CRAEF” campaign rewards show attendees who donate at least $5 with vouchers for a free Charburger with cheese at any of the Irvine-based company’s nearly 80 locations in California, Arizona and Utah.
“We’re constantly innovating ways to give back to the communities we serve, and our partnership with CRAEF allows us to contribute to our industry by supporting its future leaders,” said Russ Bendel, president and CEO of the Habit Burger Grill.
Habit has donated thousands of burger vouchers to entice attendees to open their wallets, resulting in more than $30,000 raised at previous shows, and at soft opening events at new Habit locations.
The cash will benefit CRAEF’s ProStart program, which provides adopted schools with expanded curriculum, field trips, paid internships, guest speakers, job shadowing, competition costs, ServSafe certification, equipment, supplies and food. There are 5,800 students enrolled in ProStart classes in 80 high schools across California, including 28 in Los Angeles County.
Stop by booth No. 627 at WFHE to learn more. Interview opportunities with ProStart instructors and students, as well as CRAEF staff, are available.
