To have a stake in it -means to have involvement or interest in something or someone. Every time you, our customer, purchase a cheesesteak you have a direct involvement or interest in a child in need, locally, nationally and internationally. Why, you ask? Well, for every cheesesteak that is purchased, our "You have a Steak in it" program feeds a meal to a child in need. It may not be your intention when you come to By George for your meal, but when you do, your involvement is helping children in need. Over 92,000 meals have been donated to date, so thank you again it is a simple act that has great impact. We love you and appreciate your support.
Summer has been full of adventure for us at By George. For 9 of the last 10 years we have been traveling to El Salvador to work with the people there. This July, we were there for a week working with the children and helping with the feeding program at King's Castle, which we support through the "You Have a Steak in It" program. We have seen that the feeding program has grown a great deal since last year. This is disheartening because that means more children are in need, but it is exciting that we are helping King's Castle meet a great need there. During our time in El Salvador we were able to see all the children we have worked with over the years and also meet so many new children. We feel that they are apart of our hearts and family and are thankful for the ability to see them every year. If you could see first hand the impact that the "You Have a Steak in It" program has on the lives of these children, you would be over joyed with the fact that such a small act can do so much.
As of the end of the second quarter of this year, the "You Have a Steak in It" program has help provided over 77,000 meals to children in need with in our local, national and international communities. Thank you for your support, this support has a mighty impact!

Since the program start in 2016, 61,587 meals have be received. Together with our sister location HUNGER BURGER and their "PATTIES WITH A PURPOSE" program, 214,735 meals have be received by children in need. Yes, can you believe it, just because you came and had a cheesesteak or burger, children are being fed. We can not thank you enough for all your support and help you have given to us. THANK YOU.
Happy New Year to you and yours. We are so blessed to share with you that in 2016, you helped to feed 49,485 meals to children in need, in Philadelphia, the USA and in El Salvador, through the "YOU HAVE A STEAK IN IT" program (with every cheesesteak sold, a meal is given to a child in need). Our sister location, Hunger Burger has a similar program "PATTIES WITH A PURPOSE" (for every burger we sell, a child is fed), since it's inception, this program has helped feed 133,934 meals to children in need. It is incredible to think that with the simple act of enjoying a Cheesesteak at By George or burger at Hunger Burger, 183,419 children have been fed. Thank you so much for your support, we are passionate about helping those in our local and global communities while doing what we love - serving you.
