Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

Good points all.

But I do have a suggestion for chefs, restaurants, and other small businesses: don't just wait around for the next freebie request. Have a philanthropy strategy. Know what you want to support and why, then stick to it. Be sure it aligns with your business plan (you have a plan, right?), then create a budget (how much you'd be willing to donate in any one year), then implement the plan. NOW you have a construct for what you will, AND what you won't support, and by how much and how often. This way the next time you have to say, "Sorry, can't do it," it's not because you're just burned out by requests. It's because you ARE doing your part in the community, without putting yourself out of business. Just a thought.
