ANGELIQUE SALAZAR IN THE NEWS!


$1,000 worth of pizza for furloughed workers free meal at Crafty Fox was ‘reason to get out of bed’

DENVER (Jan. 22, 2019)

Generating heartfelt expressions of gratitude, Crafty Fox Taphouse & Pizzeria handed out more than $1,000 worth of pizza and drinks recently to federal workers who have temporarily lost their jobs as part of the U.S. government shutdown.

For nearly a week, Crafty Fox made the free meals available to the thousands of federal workers in Colorado whose paychecks have dried up. More than 100 workers took advantage of the offer. One of them was an anonymous “government employee” who sent a note to the restaurant, saying he or she had been in a “depression hole.”

“This free meal is more than a free meal to me, so thank you doesn’t quite say it all,” the employee wrote. “Falling into a depression hole, this free meal gave me a reason to get out of bed, get out of the house and share a laugh or smile, which is the best medicine. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you! More than you know.”

Crafty Fox Owner Angelique Moyer said the note and similar others validated the restaurant’s decision to dedicate a modest amount of its charitable resources toward the federal workers. Crafty Fox previously had an event before Christmas to feed Denver’s homeless population; and now the restaurant is planning a benefit in conjunction with its three-year anniversary celebration (details to be announced).

Federal worker Michael Beattie posted on social media a photo of himself and friends at the restaurant with the message, “There IS such a thing as free lunch …”

And in an email from furloughed worker Duane O. Matt: “I just wanted to personally thank you for your generosity yesterday!  Being a furloughed federal worker is tough enough, and, your business offering a free meal during this time was really appreciated. It uplifted both my colleague and me to just go, hang out, and forget about not working for a bit.”  

Angelique Moyer is related to the Salazar Family Foundation of Denver, which has a rich history of charitable works throughout the metro area.

“When we see our friends, neighbors and customers suffering the way they have been during this partial government shutdown, it inspires us to find ways to help,” Moyer said. “We wish the shutdown could come to an amicable conclusion. In the meantime, we will monitor the situation and examine ways that we might help in the future if necessary.”


Crafty Fox Stages Holiday Event for Denver’s Homeless
YourHub Denver Post - December 20, 2018 

Volunteers shuttled homeless citizens from the Denver Rescue Mission to the Crafty Fox Taphouse & Pizzeria recently, where dozens of additional volunteers served pizza, salad and chicken wings to more than 100 holiday guests.

The event, tabbed “Christmas at Crafty,” attracted a local high school teacher and students, a seven-year-old boy about to move to Texas, and a homeless guest who was celebrating news that day of a new job.

Angelique Moyer, owner of the Denver restaurant at 3901 Fox Street, decided in early November that she wanted to find a way to help improve the holidays for people who are all-too-often forgotten this time of year. Apparently, it worked.

“You’re changing the world through your heart, success and acts of kindness,” volunteer Erica Mallery wrote to Moyer in a text message after the event. “Thank you for truly being an inspiration.”
The four-dozen volunteers included Moyer’s mom, Lola Salazar; Academy High School teacher Lindsey Wrege and students from grades 9, 10 and 11; plus Allison Mueller of Centennial with her seven-year-old son Archer – the youngest of the volunteers. He said he wanted to do something memorable for some “less fortunate” people in Denver before he and his Mom moved to Texas to follow his Dad’s military assignment.

“I didn’t know I could go into the kitchen and actually serve people!” he said. “I would like to come back and do this again next year.”

Derrick (guests went by first-names only) learned about the event via a flier at the Rescue Mission, and he was especially pleased with the chicken wings, which he said had a “nice kick to them.”
