More than 16 million children in America struggle with hunger, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, and this September, thousands of restaurants and chefs nationwide will band together to raise money to fund solutions, through Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry
Last year, more than 8,200 restaurants across the country raised in excess of $5.9 million — funds to help connect kids in need with nutritious food where they live, learn and play, and educate families on ways to cook healthy, affordable meals. Operators can be part of the cause by:
- Registering their restaurants at dineoutfornokidhungry.org (Registration is free.);
- Creating fundraising promotions to run during the month of September including Dine Out For No Kid Hungry week Sept. 15-21; and
- Donating the proceeds from that promotion to Share Our Strength.
A full online resource center, with how-to guides, templates for press releases to promote participation, downloadable point-of-purchase materials, fact sheets and case histories from participating restaurants is available to registrants.
