Romano's Macaroni Grill Offers Guests a Way to Fight Hunger


DALLAS, March 3, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Finally, your sweet tooth is good for something! Today, Romano's Macaroni Grill(R) announced the nationwide launch of their new Three-Berry Tiramisu.

For each Three-Berry Tiramisu ordered now through March 31, Macaroni Grill will donate $1 to the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA). The Three-Berry Tiramisu features lemon cake layered with blackberry, raspberry and strawberry puree, sweet mascarpone and whipped cream, topped with strawberries and crushed almond biscotti.

"Since the relationship with Meals On Wheels began, our team members have made a sustained commitment to give back to this terrific organization," said Nancy Hampton, vice president of brand strategy for Macaroni Grill. "By ordering the Three-Berry Tiramisu, guests can make a positive difference in the lives of elderly, disabled and homebound Americans."

"We value our partnership with Romano's Macaroni Grill and thank them for truly making a difference in the lives of the homebound seniors we feed across the country every day," said Enid Borden, president and CEO of MOWAA.

Last year, Macaroni Grill launched a similar promotion that was an integral part of the $170,000 total raised for Meals On Wheels during the first year of the relationship. The partnership continues to flourish, as individual restaurants and team members dedicate time delivering meals, feeding volunteers and making personal connections.
