Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

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 www.firstfoodbank.org or www.rokaakor.com.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
