Joining the Downtown Community Takeout program in January, The Simple Greek has committed to producing 150 meals every Thursday through the length of the program. Their favorite meal that they have created for the program has been a rice pilaf with grilled chicken, green beans, and garbanzo beans served with homemade pita croutons and a side of Greek dressing and hummus.

Read below on how the Downtown Community Takeout Program has impacted The Simple Greek:  

“Our favorite part of being involved in the program has been giving back to the community. It keeps our doors open. It’s nice because I have my little crew – my manager, my assistant manager and myself. We love to put on music on and it’s becomes a nice routine for us. It feels like the busier days. It’s a great start to the day and we have a great interaction with the 412 Food Rescue volunteers who pick up the food. They are very gracious,” said Sasha, owner of The Simple Greek  

The Simple Greek is located at 431 Market Street and is open for dine-in and takeout on Monday – Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday – Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
