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.
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Austin.com calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
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.
