Positively Caviar Hosts First Ever Happy Hour Food Drive Event

On Thursday, February 22nd Positively Caviar, Inc. took a healthy bite out of hunger with their very first healthy food drive event, managing to turn a Thursday Happy Hour into a great time with all intensive purposes of conquering their goal of taking a healthy route toward eradicating hunger in the DC area. More than 30 people came out to Amsterdam Café and Lounge to show their support.

By approaching a typical food drive in a more unique way, Positively Caviar was able to make a deeper impact by sharing messaging, “A healthy mind starts with a healthy diet.” The goal was to combat hunger but also to ensure that by feeding America’s hungry they were being encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle with a healthier diet.

Supporters were able to make food and monetary donations to help reach the goal of combating hunger. Positively Caviar members went a step further the next day by visiting a local grocery store to purchase all healthy options with the monetary donations received.
