The Good Bowl Charity Model
Since day one making an impact and contributing to local, national and global nonprofits has been part of The Good Bowl’s DNA via our $1 per bowl donation to charities program. The recipient organizations are nonprofits rooted in humanitarian and environmental efforts are selected by our guests and employees and rotate each quarter.
