BGR The Burger Joint on Connecticut Avenue hosted a small party tonight to launch a holiday program, “ONEforONE,” to help feed the homeless. During December when you buy a burger at any of BGR’s three restaurants, the chain will in turn donate a burger to DC Central Kitchen (DCCK).

DCCK is located in downtown DC and recovers unused food to feed the homeless and hungry. The organization also trains unemployed men and women for jobs in the food service industry. DCCK recently marked its 20th anniversary.

Locally based BGR promotes its hormone-free, grain-fed beef burgers. They also have garden burgers, turkey burgers and a grilled Tuna sandwich on the menu. A quick glance at the menu told me that BGR costs a bit more than Five Guys (there is a lunch special combo).

Full disclosure: I think bloggers are now supposed to disclose the receipt of any products or goods when we write about the company in question.

Just so you know, Luis and I were walking by BGR and they invited us in for the reception. We each had a burger (tasty, good) and split an order of sweet potato fries. I also had a shake (very rich, nice); Luis had an iced tea. So, there.
