Li'l Woody's new School Lunch burger to benefit education nonprofit, Aug. 20-25
The burger above may look intimidating and that it might eat you rather than the other way around, but buying it is for a good cause.
Li'l Woody's limited time School Lunch Woody Burger is available from Tuesday, Aug. 20 to Sunday, Aug. 25. The ingredients, when separated, might look like your everyday school lunch: tater tots, green pea puree, iceberg lettuce, American cheese, tomato and ranch. But combined together, well, they make this behemoth seen up above. And yes, it works surprisingly well, and it is pretty delicious. If intimidating.
Li'l Woody's will donate $1 of every $9 School Lunch Woody burger to the nonprofit Denise Louie Education Center (DLEC), which provides early education and family support services to more than 400 low-income and immigrant Seattle children ages birth to five and their families.
“We think everyone should be excited to go back to school, not just those that can afford it,” says Marcus Lalario, owner of Li’l Woody’s.
Due to sequestration, DLEC must cut 5 percent of their budget, totaling $130,000. These cuts include eliminating five Early Head Start slots that provide support to new parents and starting preschool classes two weeks late in September.
