A dining subscription service that offers rewards while donating meals to those in need launches in Westchester this month. The service was founded in 2018 and has witnessed a surge in membership over the past few years, and we’re getting you this inside scoop — and a free membership! — on this new rewards program.
For $29.99 per year, members can choose between a digital card, which is available through Foodie Card’s mobile app, or a physical copy sent in the mail. Members earn 10% off their meals at participating restaurants, including the 125 Westchester-based establishments that have already joined. With every purchase and renewal of a Foodie Card, a full day’s worth of meals is also donated to those in need.
Beginning this November, users can use Foodie Card at local restaurants such as Donjito (Mamaroneck), Sambal (Irvington), Croton Tapsmith and Fratelli’s Trattoria (Croton-on-Hudson), TCBY (Mohegan Lake), IHOP (Hartsdale and Mohegan Lake), and Fortina Pizza (Armonk, Rye Brook, Yonkers, and Stamford, CT), among more than a hundred others.
“Foodie Card allows its members to save money while discovering and supporting local restaurants and all the while, helping feed the hungry in the county they live in,” says CEO Jared Katz. “We listened to our members, and they’ve made it clear that Westchester is the right place to plant our next flag.”
Members also earn reward points for every dollar saved after uploading an itemized receipt showing proof of discount. Points can then be redeemed for gift cards to retailers such as Apple, Starbucks, Sephora, HomeGoods, and more, effectively doubling your rewards/savings.
As part of the local launch, Foodie Card partnered with Feeding Westchester, the county’s largest nonprofit hunger relief organization, to provide meals for those in need from proceeds of every membership sold. Westchester Magazine readers can even sign up for their first year for free, and Feeding Westchester will still receive $2 for every Foodie Card signup.
“We’re so grateful to generous partners like Foodie Card, and the broader local hospitality and restaurant community in Westchester, for their ongoing support, which helps provide our neighbors in need with nutritious food year-round,” says Karen C. Erren, President and CEO of Feeding Westchester.
“We are excited about bringing our ‘dine with purpose’ mission to Westchester County,” adds Foodie Card CEO Jared Katz. “Foodie Card promotes local restaurants, assists those in need of food, and provides a great opportunity for consumers to try amazing restaurants in and around their community.”
Prior to its move into the county, Foodie Card established a strong presence on Long Island and has donated over 50,000 meals through City Harvest, NYC’s largest food rescue organization, and Island Harvest, a Long-Island based food bank. The service has expanded into Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, South Florida, and parts of New Jersey.
