Denver-based Grower’s Organic has named the winners of its ‘Paying it Forward’ campaign and will donate $1,000 to charity in the recipients’ names.

The company asked local restaurants to nominate an employee to receive a full Thanksgiving meal, according to a news release, along with organic produce and a turkey from Organic Prairie.

The winners will also have $200 donated to a charity of their choosing in their name by Grower’s Organic, the release said.

According to the release, every nominee will be given a turkey, as well as the winners.

The five grand prize winners are:

  •  James Hernandez, Bacon Social House;
  •  Brendan King, Blackbelly;
  •  Chris Ingram, Ophelia’s;
  •  Juan Alcantar, River and Woods; and
  •  Nora Ramirez, Sazza.

Grower’s Organic is also offering a canned food drive throughout November, the release said.

“Those restaurant employees work their tails off, especially around the holidays,” Brian Freeman, CEO, said in the release. “We want to provide a healthy, hearty and organic meal, to say thank you for everything they do for our communities.”
