In the 608: “Eat Out For Good” this week and support local

MADISON, Wis. – The Goodman Community Center is working with local restaurants to support them during the pandemic. “Eat Out For Good” is a program that aims to push in-person dining and carryout options this week.

The Goodman Community Center hopes to help get people back to eating out for good, and it’s all for a good cause. The Goodman Community Center has partnered with seven local restaurants to raise money for the Center’s vital programming.

From April 26 through May 1, customers dining in or ordering take-out at the participating restaurants can add a donation to their order, which will be matched up to $10,000 by generous gifts from Vogel Bros. Building Co. and Madison Kipp Corporation.

“The Madison restaurant industry has been a great friend to the Goodman Center for many years,” said Jon Lica, Director of Corporate and Community Engagement for the Goodman Center. “And these restaurants and their owners in particular have gone above and beyond for us. We wanted to give back to them by asking our community to show them some love, while also raising money for the incredible programs the Goodman Center offers.”

Those participating include: Cento, Grampa’s Pizzeria, Harmony Bar & Grill, Harvest, Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, Player’s Sports Bar, and Rosie’s Coffee Bar & Bakery.

The Goodman Community Center is the largest community center in Dane County. The center offers many programs to strengthen the lives of preschoolers through teens, meals and social activities for older adults, a food pantry, a gymnasium and fitness center, catering services and community space.
