FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Buy a drink and fight hunger at the same time? BruYou, the Philadelphia-based drink buying app, is teaming up with Yards Brewing Co. and Share Food Program in an effort to support the fight against hunger.

From now until June 30, 2022, $1 from every “Yards Share Beer” purchased through the BruYou app will go to Share Food Program’s mission to provide nutritional security and accessible food for families throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. 

Simply download the BruYou app, choose the option to buy a friend (or yourself) a drink, select Yards as the brewery and select the “Yards Share Beer.” There is no limit to how many Yards Share Beers you can purchase, so the more you purchase, the more you help fight hunger. 

Beers purchased can be redeemed at the Yards Brewing Co. taproom in Philadelphia, PA at any time. 

Yards founder, Tom Kehoe, and the Yards Crew share a commitment to supporting the good people and organizations making their backyard a better place to live and work. Their “Brew Unto Others” motto reflects their commitment to quality, community, and sustainability. It’s also a call-to-action, encouraging people to get together, to enjoy a Yards beer, each other’s company, and to Brew Unto Others every day.

What better way to do this than by drinking or gifting a beer to fight hunger. 

As Share Food Program puts it, “It’s simple, and makes a huge impact for folks in need.” 

Share Food Program is the leading hunger relief organization in the Greater Philadelphia region, working to eradicate food insecurity through food distribution, education and advocacy. 

BruYou has grown significantly in recent years and now partners with over 75 breweries, bars, and restaurants across multiple states, with the largest presence in PA and NJ.

“Our focus has always been twofold,” says BruYou CEO Ryan Perri. “We aim to connect people and allow them to send a drink to a friend, even when they are not together, and to create an additional revenue source for bars, restaurants, breweries, wineries and distilleries. Partnering with great breweries and non-profits alike to support big causes is really excited for us. As Philly natives, we are both thrilled and honored to be partnering with Yards and Share and look forward to seeing the impact we can facilitate towards the fight against hunger.”

BruYou is available for free on the Apple and Android app stores and can be downloaded at https://www.bruyouapp.com/. Businesses who are interested in accepting BruYou can get started in as little as 5 minutes at https://www.bruyouapp.com/register.
