Chipotle's Arcadia Benefit Will Aid Kids Program On Sustainable Agriculture

WASHINGTON -- Looking for a chance to stuff yourself and feel philanthropic at the same time?

On Monday, 59 Chipotle restaurants in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia will be participating in a fundraiser for the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture.

For every customer that mentions the event between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., Chipotle will donate 50 percent of its profits -- up to $15,000 -- to the sustainable food initiative.

Part of the profits from the evening will go to fund eight scholarships to support low-income children attending Arcadia's first Farm Camp, a program which works to teach local kids about sustainable agriculture.
