Do you know Even Stevens, the sandwich place? Well if you haven’t heard about it yet, I will tell you about it now. It is a sandwich shop with a cause. Steven Down, the founder, wanted to give something back to the community when he opened the first shop in June of 2014.
And after donating over 30,000 sandwiches to local non-profits in the first 6 months, he knew this could have a future.
Even Stevens has since partnered with several local non-profits. Crossroads Urban Center has just become the newest participant, partnering with the new location in Draper.
For every sandwich sold, the ingredients of one sandwich will be donated to us. So the more sandwiches they sell the more “sandwich food” our food pantry will get. For last month’s sales we were able to receive fresh cheese, peanut butter, jelly and tuna. This greatly improved the quality of the food we are able to give to people who came to our food pantry for help!
A hearty thank you to Even Stevens from all of us.
