All across Hampton Roads Thursday (June 14) Chipotle Mexican Grill is donating half of all proceeds from lunch and dinner orders to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to help with the organization’s education, advocacy, litigation, and restoration efforts.

Customers simply need to mention that they read about the fundraiser on HNNDaily and 50 percent off the total cost of their order will be donated to the foundation.

CBF is the largest independent conservation organization dedicated solely to saving the Chesapeake Bay, home to more than 17 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals.

For decades, it has been listed among the nation’s “impaired waters” because of nutrient pollution problems that compromise the entire ecosystem of the bay.
