Over 60 top leaders from the restaurant industry will serve with their competitors at the North Texas Food Bank, November 12th, 2008.

Dallas, TX, November 12, 2008 --( Over 65 senior level executives from the 120 major restaurant companies that make up the People Report Consortium will gather in Dallas on November 12th, 2008 to lend a hand at the North Texas Food Bank.

This day of service taking place from 8:30am-12:00pm will be the first time this many senior foodservice executives have banded together to lend a hand for a day. In a time when economic pressures continue to strangle the restaurant industry, it is unprecedented for executives from competing, national companies to come together to serve the community together.

“People Report is proud that, with the help of our member consortium we can help make a significant impact in our community in a short amount of time,” shares Joni Doolin, Founder and CEO of People Report. She adds, “This is a new thing for our industry, having competitors serve together. It gives us hope that amidst one of the toughest years we have faced as businesses, we can come together for the purpose of helping others.”

Hosted by Jim Knight, Senior Director of Training and Development for Hard Rock International, the 65 executives will start the day by learning about “Philanthropy That Rocks” then spend the morning at the North Texas Food Bank serving together.

The event is a part of the annual People Report Best Practices Conference drawing over 250 executives to Dallas November 12th & 13th to learn best people practices from top industry leaders and thought leading experts. The Service That Rocks Event will be an annual addition to the conference after such a great number of sign ups in 2008.
