Press Release: September Cake Sales at TooJay’s Take a Slice Out of Hunger

September Cake Sales at TooJay’s Take a Slice Out of Hunger
During Hunger Action Month, one dollar from every slice of cake sold will be donated to Feeding Florida

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (September 4, 2018) – Enjoying a slice of cake from TooJay’s famous bakery is especially sweet in September when one dollar from every
slice of cake sold is donated to Feeding Florida during Hunger Action Month.

TooJay’s launched its Too+You partnership with Feeding Florida in September 2017
and since then has raised and donated $18,638 to end food insecurity in Florida. A statewide network of Feeding America food banks, Feeding Florida provides a healthy,
adequate and consistent food supply to those in need. Every dollar donated provides 11 meals through the Feeding Florida network.


Guests also can conveniently make donations by rounding up their checks in September. TooJay’s will donate up to $10,000 during the month-long campaign. “We are honored to continue our partnership with Feeding Florida and feel it is a perfect match,” said Max Piet, president and CEO of TooJay’s. “Our teams are excited and highly engaged in the program and we are proud to give back to each of our communities.”

Executive Director of Feeding Florida Robin Safley said, “Hunger is a complex problem that cannot be solved by one entity alone. Partnerships can be a powerful force, and Feeding Florida is so grateful to the team at TooJay’s for playing an important role in fighting hunger in our communities.”

Founded in 1981, TooJay’s has grown to 28 restaurants throughout Florida and currently serves guests in Palm Beach and Broward counties, the Treasure Coast, the
West Coast of Florida, the Orlando area, The Villages, and Polk County.

TooJay’s received the 2018 and 2017 Dining Award for Best Deli from Orlando Magazine, two Foodie Awards for Best Deli and Best Take-Out from the Orlando
Sentinel, the 2016 Best of South Florida Award for Best Deli from the Sun Sentinel and ranked eighth in the country for Family Dining by Consumer Reports.
