Vegan options at Wildflower Bread Company

I love Wildflower Bread Company! Not only is their food amazingly delicious, but they donate a portion of their profits to charity and are always participating in additional charity events and helping out the local community. Their customer service is also superb, as they’re quick to respond to any inquiries and always willing to resolve issues for their customers. I reached out to them last year to get an “official” list of their vegan menu items, and they provided the list below. I should’ve published this a long time ago, but here it is, better late than never!

Bite Nite charity event at Scottsdale Resort

Tera and I attended Bite Nite at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference center last Saturday night.

Bite Nite is a charity event and fundraiser for the Arizona chapter of the ALS Association, who is working to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The Locals Only Phoenix show with Jenn Maggiore and Heather Long was recorded live at the event. Tera and I make an appearance on the show around the 00:20:40 mark. Check out the video below to see us on the show! Note: the video takes a minute or so to load after clicking play.

If you have trouble playing the embedded video above, try playing it directly on the Ustream website instead.

Thank you to Locals Only Phoenix and AZ ALS for hooking us up with tickets!

I’d say the event was a smashing success. We had a fabulous time and they raised a lot of money to help fund research for curing ALS and for services for ALS patients in need.

The event was made possible by many generous sponsors, but 5 valley restaurants were crucial, all who donated time, money and other resources to this great cause. Huge kudos to 5th and Wine, Oregano’s, Cien Agaves, Va Bene and Ling & Louie’s for their outstanding contributions.
