One in five children in the United States face hunger every day. In an effort to combat this problem, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has joined the fight to raise awareness and end childhood hunger in America. Throughout September, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month, guests who dine at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria in El Segundo can donate to No Kid Hungry, a charitable organization working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. Guests will be able to donate $5 to No Kid Hungry, and will receive $5 back to use on their next visit to Grimaldi’s. 100 percent of the proceeds raised will benefit No Kid Hungry.
€œNo child should have to worry about where their next meal is going to come from. The struggle of childhood hunger hits close to home, and knowing that Grimaldi’s can make a difference means a lot. Everyone within the Grimaldi’s family is looking forward to partnering with No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in our local communities,€ said Eric Greenwald, President of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and No Kid Hungry Board Member.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry ®. In 2014, Grimaldi’s raised $70,000, and the 11,000 participating restaurants raised a total of $8.9 million for the campaign. This year, the restaurant wants to exceed last years fundraising efforts and raise an additional 25% for the organization. Funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S., support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy dishes with limited resources.
