With over 70 restaurants across the country, a menu of more than 100 scratch made items and the world’s largest selection of draft beers, Yard House restaurants offer a great place to spend an evening. Each location features great music, original artwork created by artist Jerome Gastaldi and a welcoming staff. What most people don’t know is that Yard House prioritizes giving back to the community each time they open a new location.

Each Yard House location participates in Round It Up America, enabling customers to support local non-profit organizations by rounding up their purchases to the nearest dollar. They also take part in Darden Harvest, which donates surplus food to local food banks. Through their partnership with other Darden restaurant brands, Yard House and the Darden Foundation award millions of dollars in grants to nonprofit organizations across the country.

With a new Yard House location opening in Downtown Commons, the company decided to donate to Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) as they became a new part of the Sacramento community. General Manager of the location Mark Brandenburg says “Giving back is an important part of our business and we look forward to continuing this tradition in Sacramento. In fact, this dedication to community is so engrained in our culture at Yard House, it makes up two elements of our team philosophy, Our House Rules: We’re Committed and We’re Caring.”

This fall, Yard House named SFBFS the beneficiary of the soft opening Friends and Family Night at Yard House Sacramento. The restaurant donated all proceeds from alcohol sales for the evening to SFBFS. Even more exciting, the location will celebrate its grand opening shortly; Yard House will award an undisclosed amount to SFBFS to help feed local families in need. Stay tuned to learn what the contribution will mean for SFBFS!

“Yard House is a family,” says Brandenburg, “and by opening in Sacramento, we’re expanding that family to include this community. We look forward to getting to know each of our guests and giving back in an impactful way.”
