Here’s how it works. Just visit any Asian Mint location on any Thursday this October and on specially marked days – October 1 for #WorldVegetarianDay, October 6 for #NationalNoodleDay, November 1 for #WorldVeganDay, and November 7 for #NationalPadThaiDay.
On those days, enjoy any one of the four Pad Thai dishes on the Asian Mint menu. Take a picture of your Pad Thai dish (better if you could include your happy face in the pic) and share it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #AsianMint and #MintFanatic.
That’s all. And it’s that simple.
But there’s actually more to it, really. You see, for every Pad Thai you purchase at Asian Mint on #PadThaiThursday and on the other dates mentioned, $2 will be donated to the North Texas Food Bank.
In other words, you’d be enjoying a great dish, one of our favorites here at Asian Mint. At the same time, you’d be helping us help other people in need. Doesn’t that feel good?
North Texas Food Bank provides access to 190,000 meals in 13 counties daily
North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help alleviate hunger in North Texas. According to its reports, there are around 800,000 individuals challenged with food insecurity in North Texas alone. These individuals include children, seniors, and families across 13 counties.
Through donations and partnerships, NTFB currently provides access to 190,000 meals daily. In 2017, they were able to give 72 million meals for the whole year. The organization aims to increase that number to 92 million meals by the time 2025 rolls in. NTFB is a member of the national-level hunger relief organization Feeding America.
Hunger is a serious challenge that many families in North Texas face today. NTFB is doing their best to help these families become more food-secure. But the organization can’t do it alone and is always looking for people who can join their cause. Check out ways you can get involved in the fight against hunger today by clicking here.
Asian Mint’s heart is in giving
As you Mint Fanatics all know by now, Asian Mint’s Chef Nikky Phinyawatana has a passion for giving. She firmly believes that a charitable business can be a successful business, and it’s a reality she lives every single day at Asian Mint. Asian Mint has a tradition of charitable giving; a portion of the restaurant’s profits goes to different charities, schools, and non-profit organizations. Chef Nikky doesn’t take a tax incentive from her philanthropic efforts.
So, as you can see, our #PadThaiThursday gimmick is more than just a gimmick. Sure, it’s fun to watch y’all slurp at your Pad Thais and look at all the pictures and videos of you doing just that on social media. And we’re pretty sure you love doing it too. It even feels better when we all know that while we’re having fun and enjoying great food, we’re also trying to help someone in need too.
See y’all at Asian Mint soon!
