Good Egg Gives Back
If your charitable organization would like to be considered for the next year of our statement projects or you
have a volunteer opportunity for us, please fill out our Donation Form here.
A Good Egg Dining Group Restaurants are proud to pull together as one force to make an impact in the city we love. Each year, our concept committee
elects two new projects on which to focus our giving – in a big way. We call these projects our “Statement Projects”.
These are our highlighted passions for the year.
THE FOOD PEOPLE POP UP DINNER
benefitting POSITIVE TOMORROWS
This dinner is an opportunity for our diverse concepts and talented chefs to share their love of food, people, and hospitality from the inside out. | August 2016
TURNING THE TABLE ON HUNGER
benefitting THE HOMELESS ALLIANCE

We are committed to providing opportunities for our team to offer community support through volunteer time.
Each of our unique restaurant concepts chooses a benefactor close to their heart to contribute to throughout the year.
Come out and join us if the feeling strikes you…working together is always better than working apart!
