October is anti-bullying month and Chompie’s, Arizona’s New York Deli, is doing its part to help keep recess yards at Phoenix schools safe. On Oct. 24, Chompie’s presented a check to Playworks Arizona, totaling $11,282, through its “Chompie’s Cares” program.

Playworks Arizona is a nonprofit organization that transforms recess by placing full-time coaches at schools to teach the kids how to play together, resolve conflicts through rock-paper-scissors, and how to be inclusive.

For every kids meal purchased from the new kids menu, as well as for every Chompie’s brand water bottle sold at the restaurant and deli, Chompie’s makes a donation to Playworks to help schools run much-needed programs that teach kids to be inclusive and boost self-confidence.
