Since 2008, the Dine Out For No Kid Hungry program has raised more than $37 million to help end childhood hunger right here in the U.S. You might be surprised to learn in community news that, according to a study by the USDA Household Food Security, more than 16 million children here face hunger.
It is easy to support the No Kid Hungry campaign, organized by the nonprofit Share Our Strength. All you have to do is eat at one of the participating restaurants during September. Every dollar raised can feed a child 10 meals. Jack In The Box, Denny’s, The Counter, Corner Bakery Café, Sweetfin Poké and Smashburger are just a few of the local eateries that have pledged to help make a difference in the battle against hunger.
