The partnership will be the newest addition to the Sweet Paris program called “Eat Here, Feed There” that to date, has been able to provide more than 130,000 meals to children battling hunger since its inception in 2012.

Sweet Paris founders, Allison and Ivan Chavez, who are very mindful of childhood hunger, will roll out the new program immediately.

Inspired by the overwhelming need, the parents of two children decided to “fight hunger with hunger,” using the resources of Sweet Paris to raise funds to serve the communities they work in.

Patrons will be able to purchase three crêpes on the menu designated by the Houston Food Bank logo. Diners may choose from the following crêpes to make a donation: Allison’s Parfait, Truffled Caprese and Lemon & Sugar.

For each of the three designated crêpes purchased, Sweet Paris will donate 33 cents to help provide meals to children in need. With the support of the community, the Houston Food Bank is able to serve 800,000 people each year, nearly half of which are children.

“The new partnership with the Houston Food Bank allows us to feed children in need,” said Allison Chavez. “As our business continues to grow we will be able to make a significant contribution to fight hunger.”

“Feeding others is one of the most universal expressions of human care and love,” said Brian Greene, president/CEO of Houston Food Bank.

“We are fortunate to have partners like Sweet Paris who understand the importance of feeding others, and not just customers in their stores, but those they may never know or meet. We thank them for their generosity and for helping us to fill pantries and fill lives.”
