How   It   Works...

What if you could help support local businesses AND raise money for your organization just by having a great meal?

Meals for Moolah makes fundraising simple.  On a selected date and time, a percentage of food and beverage sales will be donated to your non-profit organization from one of our Restaurant Partners.  The more people who dine on behalf of your organization, the more that you earn!

The program is available to all local non-profits such as schools, churches, youth groups, and other 501(c)3 organizations.  

Not only can you raise money for your organization and help boost business at local restaurants, setting up the event is a piece of cake (food pun intended).  We'll take care of all the details!
