This holiday season, turn some of your dining dollars to a better use than your own stomach.
Southwest Minneapolis restaurants Gigi's Cafe and Pat's Tap are joining Kim Bartman's four other restaurants to donate a portion of their profits to local food shelves.
Between Nov. 23 and Dec. 31, the six establishments will give 15 percent of all gift card sales to the Emergency Food Shelf Network. According to an announcement posted on Gigi's Facebook page, a $10 donation can pay for 20 meals.
According to the Emergency Food Shelf Network's website, the group serves over 200 relief agencies and help other food shelves buy supplies at extra-low rates.
