Favor Delivery and Southern Smoke Foundation Team up for Holiday Giving Campaign with $50,000 Donation Goal

Favor Delivery today announced its latest partnership with Southern Smoke Foundation for the holiday season, giving its customers an easy way to support restaurant industry workers every time they place an order through the Favor app or website. With a donation goal of $50,000, Favor will double the impact of customer contributions by matching $1 for $1 up to $25,000 total.

Now through Dec. 31, 2023, customer contributions will go directly toward emergency relief funding for food and beverage workers and the opportunity for them to access free mental health services for members across the Texas food and beverage industry. After checkout, Favor customers will have the opportunity to give any amount with 100 percent of proceeds going towards the Southern Smoke Foundation.

The Southern Smoke Foundation is a nonprofit founded and powered by current and past food and beverage workers. Based in Houston, Texas, Southern Smoke Foundation is dedicated to creating a meaningful safety net of support for the food and beverage industry nationwide.

“We love working with partners who truly understand our mission,” said Chris Shepherd, founding director of Southern Smoke Foundation. “Our friends at Favor know that for the restaurant industry to thrive, those who work in the food and beverage industry must have support and a safety net though emergency relief funding and no cost mental health services. The holiday season is tough for F+B workers, so the support from Favor and their customers is vital to getting them through. It’s the holiday cheer the industry needs!”

In Texas alone, Southern Smoke has granted more than $1 million to food and beverage workers and provided more than 2,700 no-cost mental healthcare sessions statewide.

“As a Texas-based restaurant delivery app, we know just how essential and impactful the Southern Smoke Foundation’s work is across the restaurant industry — especially in our home state,” said Keith Duncan, Favor CEO. “The importance of Southern Smoke’s mission, to provide everyday support and resources across the food and beverage industry, cannot be overstated. We are honored to launch this monthlong partnership to raise funds and awareness of their critically important work this holiday season and beyond.”

Now celebrating 10 years as the only delivery app for Texans by Texans, Favor has donated more than $1 million to causes around the state.

Now through Dec. 21, 2023, customers can give to Southern Smoke every time they place an order through Favor’s app or website. The Texas-based on-demand delivery service encourages Texans to support Southern Smoke Foundation year round – visit Southern Smoke to give at any time.
