National Chili Day is about celebrating flavor, so Gold Star and the Freestore Foodbank are honoring our city’s flavor in a big way. We’re crowning 13 “Flavor Makers” – people who bring flavor to this city every day. We’re featuring one Flavor Maker each day for 13 days – and a special combo meal, the #13, that will benefit the Freestore Foodbank and their initiatives to end childhood hunger, in their honor. So grab a #13 now through March 9 to honor the city’s finest and celebrate real flavor for a very worthy cause.

Fight child hunger

For every #13 combo purchased from February 25 to March 9, Gold Star will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Freestore Foodbank’s Childhood Hunger Programs, which ensures that children in food-insecure households have access to nutritious meals. The program’s three initiatives include the School Pantry program, Kids Café and the Power Pack program. Gold Star and our guests have generously donated nearly $130,000 to the Freestore Foodbank to help feed our community. Click the link below to learn more.
