The Robert Irvine Foundation is partnering with Boston Market to offer special menu items to raise awareness of the Robert Irvine Foundation and its mission to provide services and support for military personnel, veterans, first responders and their families. These dishes will be available at all Boston Market stores now through July 11.
Robert Irvine created the Foundation to support American heroes, assisting military, (active, retired and veterans), first responders, their families and those in need through resiliency, health and wellness programs, in addition to the financial support of military and responder organizations. Since the Foundation’s launch, it has served meals to thousands of service members and veterans, supported the training of PTSD service dogs for injured first responders and veterans, provided relief grants to veterans and Gold Star Families, offered mobility devices for injured heroes and more.
“I’m incredibly grateful to the folks at Boston Market for partnering with me and my foundation on such an exciting partnership,” says Robert Irvine. “Food does so much more than nourish our bodies, it has incredible power to bring people together. This summer at Boston Market, families will be able to come together to enjoy a chef’s special from yours truly – and knowing that while they do so, they’re easing the burdens on our veterans and their families. It’s a perfect win-win all around.”
Robert Irvine created the following limited time menu items:
● Create Your Own Smokehouse Platter (Two-Meat Combo);
● Create Your Own Smokehouse Platter (Three-Meat Combo); and
● Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich.
“It’s an honor to support the Robert Irvine Foundation and the great work it does on behalf of veterans, active service members and their families,” says Jay Pandya, chairman, Boston Market Corporation. “We are proud of our veterans and thrilled to support them as we showcase Chef Robert Irvine’s delicious smokehouse and pulled pork menu items. Thank you for all that you do Robert Irvine Foundation and our men and women in uniform.”
Boston Market will make a $75,000 donation to the Robert Irvine Foundation as part of the partnership.
