As our motto says, the Hitch concept is “Where giving back never tasted so good.” In fact, we actually opened our own restaurant concept in part to serve as a vehicle for driving more charitable dollars to underserved communities, and a portion of our profits go directly to Project Boon, a 501- (c3) charity based in Rancho Cucamonga. At Hitch, you can feel good knowing that every bite of our fresh, delicious food goes towards helping those in need in our own backyard, and a world away.
Here are a few ways that we serve communities we are from, through Project Boon:
- Eat and Be Well
Held every year in San Bernardino County during the Thanksgiving season, Eat and Be Well serves traditional Thanksgiving meals to those in need, while also connecting them with local municipalities, volunteer services and businesses that provide services such as free health screenings and haircuts.
- Inland Valley Recovery Services Holiday Events
Being in recovery is a day by day challenge that will last a lifetime. To help those who have fought battles to become the best version of themselves, Project Boon supports the Inland Valley Recovery Services (IVRS) holiday events for the Easter, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas seasons by providing food, toys and health services for those battling addiction.
- Operation Devolver
This event, which takes place multiple times per year, visits an underserved community of Tuxpan, Jalisco, Mexico, where the Hitch concept owner, Karina Suchánek grew up. These trips bring food, school supplies, toys and hope to those living in this impoverished region.
