Toast Kitchen + Bakery does so much more than serve your favorite brunch, and is once again helping serve its community. From July-September, Toast Kitchen + Bakery will donate 10% of its monthly proceeds to Project Hope Alliance, a nonprofit that aims to end childhood homelessness.
As the state continues to reopen, Toast is dedicated to continuing to providing for its community in any way possible. What once started as a way to support nonprofits during the pandemic has now continued to be a core staple at Toast as it continues to donate to worthy nonprofits. Supporting Project Hope Alliance is as simple as stopping by (or ordering for delivery), and indulging in some of Toast’s classics like the Ube French Toast, Orange Chicken & Black Sesame Waffle, Pork Belly Rice Bowl, or your favorite go-to item.
When you support Toast Kitchen + Bakery during these months, you are also helping to eliminate barriers brought on by childhood homelessness that could impede a child’s ability to learn and succeed in school. Established in 1989, the organization remains committed to providing homeless children and youth from kindergarten through age 24 with the tools and opportunities that they need to learn their way to a better tomorrow.
Toast is open Tuesday through Friday from 8 am-7pm and Saturday through Sunday 8am-3pm (closed Mondays). To learn more about Toast Kitchen + Bakery, visit www.toastkitchenbakery.com or follow them on social @toastmesa.
