Dine at Roka Akor, Help St. Mary's Food Bank

If you're looking for an easy way to help others this holiday season, dining at Roka Akor in Scottsdale means you'll also be giving money to St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix.

The trendy Japanese and sushi restaurant gives 20 percent of its profits to the charity through Sunday, December 13, and all the money raised will also be matched by the John and Editha Kapoor Charitable Foundation, making for a total of 40 percent donated from diners' bills.

The hip eatery serves Saturday brunch, take-out, happy hour and dinner, so there are lots of opportunities to help.

Donations for the food bank will also be accepted at the restaurant. For more information, log on to or
