This Halloween, visit any London Chipotle in fancy dress and score a burrito for just £2. Chipotle Mexican Grill will treat customers wearing fancy dress to a burrito, burrito bowl, salad or order of tacos for only £2. The fast food restaurant will donate all proceeds from the fundraiser to charity Action Against Hunger, with a minimum pledge of £10,000.
The group has six restaurants across London, including Soho, Baker Street, Islington and, more recently The City.
Director of Fundraising and Communications at Action Against Hunger, Matthew White commented: ‘We’re terrifyingly excited to be partnering with Chipotle on this year’s Boo-rito campaign. Head on down to your nearest restaurant in fancy dress, enjoy some fang-tastic food for just £2 and help raise money for Action Against Hunger. Bone appetite!’
UK Managing Director for Chipotle, Jacob Sumner said: ‘We are committed to changing the way people think about and eat fast food, and through our annual ‘Boo-rito’ fundraiser we have been able to impact organisations such as Action Against Hunger. Our minimum pledge of £10,000 could provide up to 10,000 days’ worth of therapeutic food for malnourished children to help them regain their health’.
Chipotle began in the USA where it operates over 2,000. It opened its first restaurant outside North America, at Charing Cross Road in Central London in 2010. Chipotle has been recognised by Compassion in World Farming at the annual Good Animal Welfare Awards and has received a Good Chicken Award and a Good Pig Award. The company was praised for its approach to the sourcing of its raw ingredients and also for its commitment to using free-range pigs and RSPCA Freedom Food certified poultry for its chicken dishes.
Diners can participate in the fundraiser by visiting any London Chipotle restaurant on Monday 31st October in fancy dress and purchase any menu item for £2.
