Bob Evans Restaurants have found a way to provide a holiday-style meal to those in need while also satisfying their customers.

Starting Thursday, Nov. 14, Bob Evans will donate 100 “Farmhouse Feast” meals to foodbanks in their markets, matching customer orders for those Farmhouse Feasts for their own homes. So if 50 people in the Dayton area are among the first 100 across all Bob Evans markets to purchase their Farmhouse Feasts starting Nov. 14, Bob Evans will donate 50 Farmhouse Feast meals to Dayton-area foodbanks, Bob Evans officials said in a release.

“People look to us to be a big part of their Thanksgiving celebrations, whether that’s joining us in the restaurants on that day or serving a Farmhouse Feast to their loved ones at home,” Bob Holtcamp, chief marketing officer for Bob Evans Restaurants, said in the release. “We serve Thanksgiving meals all year, so in a lot of ways, our brand is synonymous with the holiday.”

“We’re a big part of our communities during the holiday season, so it was important to us to find a way to give back.”

Each Farmhouse Feast is fully cooked and ready to heat and serve. The “Premium Farmhouse Feast” feeds eight to 10 people and includes slow-roasted turkey and hickory-smoked ham, as well as Thanksgiving classics such as bread and celery dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans with ham, macaroni & cheese, cranberry relish, fresh-baked rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and double-crust apple pie. Farmhouse Feasts are also available for smaller groups of four and eight.
