Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort
USHG is teaming up with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to support the Houston Food Bank’s response to Hurricane Harvey
Throughout the month of September, we are raising donations to support the Houston Food Bank’s heroic response to Hurricane Harvey. In partnership with our good friends at Texas-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka, each USHG restaurant is featuring their own take on a “Tito’s Texas Relief” cocktail.
$10 from each drink sold will benefit the Houston Food Bank’s ongoing efforts to provide food, water, and supplies to residents of southeast Texas who have been impacted by Harvey’s catastrophic damage in the region. For those of us who find our passion in nourishing and nurturing guests in our restaurants, there’s a strong impulse to feed people in times of need—we’re grateful to Tito’s Handmade Vodka and to our guests for coming together to maximize our support for the Houston community.
