Bend-O-Bento wants you to help Japan

Buy bento boxes to help Japan.

Sunday marks the one year anniversary of the massive earthquake that hit northeastern Japan, triggering a devastating tsunami and leading to the meltdown of a nuclear powerplant. About 20,000 people were confirmed killed or are still missing.

It’s been a long year for the survivors.

That’s where you and Bend-O-Bento comes in. The two Japanese gals that opened this shop on Wilson Avenue a few weeks back want you to come in and buy a $10 lunch. They’ll take the cash and send it off for relief efforts in Japan.

It’s really an extension of the mission the two women had when they first got together last year for a Japan relief benefit at Common Table. They ended up feeding 300 people and raising $20,000.

The other common denominator? The food.

Bend-O-Bento’s food isn’t about yakisoba and Kalifornia rolls. You can expect to see a much more authentic take on Japanese fare than any of the other kitchens in town, according to the owners.

We just think it’s a great thing to do with your Sunday.
