Super Duper Day, 2021
Monday, April 26
Dine with us to help support Bay Area youth!
A portion of all sales will be donated to our nonprofit partner, Friends of the Children.
We could all use a bit of a refresh, right?
A lot has happened over the last year, and things finally seem to be inching their way back to some sort of normal. We love seeing more and more of your smiling faces walk through our doors (we know you‘re smiling under those masks) and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate, but even though there is some light at the end of the tunnel, we still have a lot of work to do as a community.
10 years ago, the late San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee proclaimed the last Monday in April as “Super Duper Day” in recognition of our restaurants’ generous community support. Each Super Duper Day since, we’ve celebrated with our fans and team members while giving back to our communities.
So, on Super Duper Day 2021, we‘re refreshing our commitment to our community in a big way.
We’d love to give out tons of free burgers like we have on past Super Duper Days, but this year we‘re focusing on our energy on making a larger impact. That’s why we‘ve partnered with Friends of the Children, a mentoring and assistance program empowering our most vulnerable children to break the generational cycle of poverty.
Dine with us at any location on Super Duper Day, April 26, and a portion of all sales will go towards Friends of the Children’s mentorship program and other urgent needs for vulnerable children like food and meal deliveries, school supplies, and internet access.
About Friends of the Children
The SF Bay Area branch of Friends of the Children is part of a national network that has been utilizing a simple yet radical mentoring model for over 25 years to empower the most vulnerable children to break the generational cycle of poverty.
The organization serves children whose families face daunting barriers like systemic racism, multi-generational poverty, domestic violence, substance abuse, incarceration and/or homelessness — a cohort that few other organizations seek to serve.
COVID-19 has significantly exacerbated those challenges. Members of the community Friends of the Children serves are testing positive at a rate five to six times as high as residents of more affluent neighborhoods. And the economic effects of the pandemic fall disproportionately on those same families, whose jobs are often the first eliminated and last restored, and who frequently have insecure housing and insufficient health insurance.
During the pandemic, the organization has expanded their focus to address the most urgent concerns of their member families, for example making regular food and meal deliveries, providing laptops and internet connections to help their children bridge the digital divide, and connecting families with other agencies that can help address their needs.Learn More
