Foodie brand Epicurean Chronicles is raising funds through its EC Gives Back Program for Little John’s, a new “pay what you can” counter-service bistro piloted by Chef Dave Heide to address issues surrounding food waste and employing military veterans. Restaurants develop a social-media-friendly special, with a portion of sales benefiting a charitable organization. SoHo in Fitchburg is the featured participating restaurant through Jan. 31. uwsoho.com
Spicy Green Beans: Sautéed in a flavorful fusion of house soy sauce, Thai chilis and garlic. It’s a sharable plate but can also be savored solo.
Baked Fried Rice: Commonly found in eateries around Hong Kong, try it with a tomato or a curry sauce. Soho will donate $3 from each order to the EC Gives Back Program this month.
