The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have partnered with MOGL, a restaurant rewards platform in San Diego, Calif., to pilot a program that will help feed needy families in local communities through credit unions’ credit and debit card programs.
When credit union members charge more than $20 on their debit or credit card at a participating MOGL restaurant, a meal will be donated to a local community foodbank via Feeding America. In addition, credit union members also receive 10% cash back by using their credit or debit cards when they dine at participating MOGL restaurants.
The MOGL program can work with a credit union’s existing card reward program, according to the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.
“Partnering with a company such as MOGL will allow our member credit unions to continue to practice their philosophy of ‘People Helping People’—helping to eradicate hunger through the donation to food banks and supporting their communities,” said Tony Kitt, senior vice president of strategic innovation and planning for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.
MOGL is the largest restaurant rewards platform in California, with close to 2,000 restaurants enrolled. MOGL members have received more than $4 million in cash back, and its Meal for a Meal program has donated nearly 500,000 meals to Feeding America and its national network of food banks.
