Tso Chinese Delivery to Donate $100k in Meals for the Holidays

#TsoGiving Partners with Austin Nonprofits to Continue Feeding Those in Need

(Austin, TX) – Tso Chinese Delivery, will continue its commitment to feeding the Austin community this holiday season, with their latest #TsoGiving initiative which aims to donate $100,000 in meals. For this new #TsoGiving campaign, Tso Chinese Delivery has partnered with seven local organizations in an effort to feed as many individuals in need as they can. The holiday campaign launches just in time for Thanksgiving, and will continue through the end of December 2020.

The holiday initiative is set to double what Tso Chinese Delivery has already given this year through #TsoGiving campaigns. To date, #TsoGiving has donated over $110,000 in meals to Austinites in need, via contactless, curbside food drive-throughs and their #50kForTeachers campaign, which gave $50,000 to thank local educators. Tso Chinese Delivery, which became a registered B-Corp (Public Benefit Corporation) earlier this year, was honored by Austin Business Journal as one of 2020’s Inspiring Leaders, and also received an Austin A-List Award as a result of their dedication to the local community.

“In the spirit of the holidays, we felt it was essential to continue our #TsoGiving initiative into the holiday season, and continue to give back to our community,” said Tso Chinese Delivery’s CEO, Min Choe. “This year is even more challenging with Covid-19 remaining a prevalent force, and with many people still unemployed, so we partnered with local organizations that are already making an impact on feeding those in need, and work as a team to reach more people.”
