COSTA MESA, Calif. (Nov. 9, 2022) — Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant known for its innovative twists on American dishes served with small mountain town hospitality, is bringing back its popular DIY Gingerbread House Kit for a fourth season to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Complete with pre-cut edible gingerbread walls and roof pieces, icing to keep it all together and a variety of candy for imaginative decorating, the kit is even sweeter with 100% of net proceeds of sales going to support Habitat for Humanity.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Lazy Dog Restaurants,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause marketing partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “Their continued support will help us further our mission of building homes, community and hope alongside families in the U.S. and around the world.”  

Lazy Dog is proud to support Habitat for Humanity this holiday season with a commitment of $100,000 from Nov. 9 to Dec. 31, 2022. The net proceeds  sales price less cost of goods — of $2.12 per kit will be donated. The Gingerbread House Kits are available from Nov. 9 to Dec. 31 for $7.50 and can be found at all Lazy Dog locations for takeout and delivery while supplies last. Guests who are not near a Lazy Dog Restaurant location can also purchase the kits online in bundles of four for $30, plus shipping. Online ordering is available at

About Habitat for Humanity

Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity found its earliest inspirations as a grassroots movement on an interracial community farm in south Georgia. Since its founding in 1976, the Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit
