Fueling Good Is All About Giving Back
Now, you can dine out AND put money towards a good cause. Yes, that means you don’t need to feel guilty about eating the whole burger. Blue Plate Gives has launched at Longfellow Grill with their own Fuel Good Machine.

Your turn! Treat yourself to those tasty Longfellow sweet potato fries (sorry, must be hungry) and fuel good. Join the conversation at #BluePlateGives.
