Red Bank's culinary alliance, Flavour, has chosen local soup kitchen Lunch Break as its official charity beneficiary, the group announced Thursday.
The partnership kicks off this spring and summer with a new campaign called "Give Some Flavour, Get Some Flavour," a mutually beneficial promotion that encourages diners to eat at some of Red Bank's favorite restaurants on Monday night by promising a portion of the evening's dinner sales will be donated to the non-profit organization.
"As an alliance of culinary professionals, we feel that Lunch Break is the perfect organization for Red Bank Flavour to work with on an on-going basis,” Valerie Aufiero, owner of the Front Street Trattoria, said in a prepared statement. "With such a diverse restaurant community in Red Bank, our combined efforts can really make an impact. We all feel we have the resources to help support Lunch Break’s community-based mission."
The Monday “Give Some Flavour, Get Some Flavour” promotion begins this Monday, May 21, according to a release, and will continue through the summer months. Participating restaurants include, , , , , and .

Efforts that support Lunch Break’s mission of ending hunger and providing basic necessities to community members will be organized on an on-going basis through the Red Bank Flavour Culinary Alliance.
