Memphis, Tennessee -- Malco Theatres is lending a helping hand in the community during the month of September with a uniquely different twist on the traditional canned food festival!
The meat and potatoes of the Rave for Faves Canned Food Fest is for moviegoers to have the opportunity to "rave about their fave" film genre of Comedy, Horror, Action or Drama with a monetary donation that will spice up local food banks coffers.
The company goal is to raise enough dough to pepper the shelves of the Mid-South Food Bank, as well as the Smyrna LaVergne Food Bank (Smyrna, Tennessee), Project Homestead Food Pantry (Columbus, MS), the Mississippi Food Network, The Food Bank and Helping Neighbors Food Bank (Jonesboro, AR), the Ozark Food Bank (Northwest Arkansas), Tri-State Food Bank (Owensboro, KY area), Southeast Missouri Food Bank (Sikeston, Missouri) and Holmes Chapel Food Bank (Monticello, AR).
"The idea was cultivated from manager feedback. Malco has a long-standing tradition of supporting local organizations and we wanted to do something 'organically fresh' this time around", said Karen Scott, Director of Marketing, "and if all the ingredients come together, it will be a recipe of success."
All Malco Theatres locations will have donation boxes at theatre guest services or the concession stand from September 1 thru September 30.
