Hey, Detroit! Have you tried The Legendary Roop Raj sandwich at Hard Rock Cafe Detroit yet? If not, it’s not too late to EAT and DO some GOOD!
For 8 years Hard Rock International, Yoko Ono Lennon and WhyHunger have joined forces for the IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign, which aims to fight childhood hunger and poverty through the support of sustainable agriculture education and nutritious meals. Inspired by John Lennon and his iconic song “IMAGINE,” the campaign strives to turn his dream of a world with no hunger into a reality. This year Hard Rock Cafe Detroit has teamed up with Roop Raj of FOX 2 Detroit as part of the 8th Annual IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER Campaign with a portion of the proceeds of The Legendary Roop Raj sandwich benefitting Gleaners Community Food Bank, an organization that has distributed 34 million pounds of emergency food to more than 510 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, and Monroe counties in the past year.
The Legendary Roop Raj is a chicken breast sandwich marinated in barbeque sauce and topped with shredded cheese, mayo, onion slices, lettuce and tomato. It’s “D”elicious!
The Legendary Roop Raj sandwich is available at Hard Rock Cafe Detroit through December 31, 2015.
