January is National Soup Month and to celebrate, PhoNatic is hosting a month-long fundraiser in an effort to give back to those in need. The Vietnamese restaurant is partnering with the Austin-based nonprofit Mobile Loaves & Fishes to provide food, clothing, toiletries, and other goods to homeless Austinites.
According to the restaurant, the fundraiser is two-fold. Beginning January 1, PhoNatic will donate $1 to Mobile Loaves & Fishes for every Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook post that includes a photo of the user’s pho tagged with the hashtag #SoupPhoAll.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
Additionally, the restaurant will offer guests a free fountain drink every time they donate items to the cause. Acceptable items include unopened travel-sized toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, toothpaste, and deodorant.
The fundraiser ends on January 31, so be sure to stop by before the end of the month to enjoy a traditional pho meal, like the “212,” or dishes that puts a modern twist of Vietnamese classics.
So start the New Year right. Have some pho.
