What better way to start the new year than extending the holiday giving spirit all the way through 2018?
That’s exactly what fast casual Dog Haus is doing along with eight nationally celebrated chefs, through their partnering with No Kid Hungry.
“Since Dog Haus’ inception, giving has always been at the core of the work that we do,” said Dog Haus Partner André Vener in a press release. “We strongly believe that no person should ever go without a meal, and we are thrilled to join forces with No Kid Hungry and partner with some of the country’s best chefs to take hot dogs, sausages and burgers to new culinary heights, all while helping end childhood hunger in our country.”
The year-long collaboration will launch January 1, 2018 where each chef will craft, with the help of the Dog Haus culinary team, a special sausage to represent their assigned region of the country in which the fast casual has locations. This menu item will be available for two months at a time in all locations and $1 of the purchase price will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
The goal is to raise $100,000 for the non-profit.
Dog Haus will allow guests the option to round up their bill to the nearest dollar throughout all of 2018, to help raise additional funds for the organization.
Come January, what can guests expect, you ask?
Well, Top Chef contender Bruce Kalman of Union is the brains behind the custom porchetta sausage that Dog Haus will be featuring the first two months of 2018 to kick off the fundraising efforts. It’s called: “Porchetta ‘Bout It.”
“I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this collaboration; I mean, being able to help raise more money for No Kid Hungry, coupled with great hot dogs Is there anything better?” says Kalman in a press release. “When deciding on a hot dog, I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than creating a dog that speaks to who I am as a chef. Porchetta has become part of b identity and I am thrilled to serve it in this format.”
Other participating chefs include: Brooke Williamson, Stephanie Izard, Ilan Hall, Alex Seidel, Dean Fearing, Chris Oh, and Duff Goldman.
