Diners’ donations have allowed Babalu Tacos & Tapas in Jackson to donate more than 1,000 cans of food to Stewpot Community Services, a Jackson-based social services organization.

During December, customers were offered a $10 Babalu gift certificate for five or more cans donated.

“Being active in the community is something that’s very important to all of us at Babalu,” said co-founder Bill Latham. “We wanted to say ‘thank you’ for all the support we’ve received from our customers, friends and community partners in Jackson. And, at the same time, we wanted to help the less fortunate among us, people who are struggling in these difficult economic times.” Babalu, which is operated by Eat Here Brands, is celebrating its second year in business.

Frank Spencer, Executive Director of Stewpot, collected the donated cans earlier this month and expressed his appreciation to all who took part in the food drive. Stewpot Community Services began as a simple soup kitchen, but has now expanded to offer 17 different programs, providing shelter, clothing, counseling, children’s programs and many other critical services to the community.
