Charities benefiting from the program in 2010 included The National Wildlife Federation (in direct response to the Gulf Oil Spill), Adopt-a-Classroom, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Whole Planet Foundation and Variety the Children's Charity.

"We are delighted that our customers care about social issues and that they want to support businesses which contribute to altruistic organizations."

    Genji will continue its "Special Roll for A Special Cause" program in 2011. This month, to coincide with Black History Month, the featured charity will be the Black Culinary Alliance, whose mission is to create exposure and provide educational and professional opportunities for culinary and hospitality professionals of color.
