“This is our second year hosting Foodies 4 Foster Kids, and we are so grateful for all of the support we have received from the community and our generous restaurant partners,” said Tonya Torosian, CEO of Promises2Kids. “These 24 restaurants are helping foster youth overcome the difficulties of their past and grow to become healthy and successful adults. It is really special when you see the community come together to recognize and support foster youth for National Foster Care Month.”
