Capitola's Yogurtland 831 and Grind Out Hunger teamed up to aid local food banks by selling frozen yogurt and apparel at the O’Neill Coldwater Classic surf contest in Santa Cruz from Nov. 1 – 11.
By the end of the event, Yogurtland raised over $1,300 for Grind Out Hunger. Even world famous surfer Kelly Slater stopped by the Yogurtland booth. See the photo to the right.
Yogurtland offered four flavors of frozen yogurt with toppings for $5 with $1 per cup going to Grind Out Hunger to help area food banks during this time of growing need. Grind Out Hunger merchandise was also available. For each $15 T-shirt sold, Grind Out Hunger can help provide 28 meals for kids, and for each $35 sweatshirt sold, sixty meals can be served.
“The holidays are a tough time for families in need, and working with Grind Out Hunger we hope to make a difference,” said Kevin Dueck, franchise owner of Yogurtland 831 in Capitola.
Grind Out Hunger’s mission is to empower youth to leverage their passion for action sports and music to help others who are at risk for going hungry, and to help build a stronger community.
Yogurtland 831 will also be holding a fundraiser at the frozen yogurt shop on Nov. 14 from 3 –6 p.m. with 100 percent of proceeds going to Grind Our Hunger.
