This September marks the return of Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry campaign, the nation’s largest restaurant-based cause-marketing program that harnesses America’s appetite to do good while dining out. Every year, the restaurant industry unites around Dine Out For No Kid Hungry to benefit the 16 million kids in the U.S. who struggle with hunger every day. An end to childhood hunger is within reach, and the foodservice industry is leading the way, with restaurants, suppliers, media and trade associations sharing their strength.
The formula is simple: $1 helps feed a child up to 10 meals. Multiply that by the generosity of your customers, the commitment of your employees, and the support of No Kid Hungry, and you have the recipe for doing a tremendous amount of good that’s also good for your business. When you participate in Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, you:
Authentically engage employees, patrons and your local community
Design a promotion that works for your unique concept
Access online resources to make engagement turnkey and effective
Make a real impact for the millions of kids struggling with hunger
Last year, thousands restaurants across the country raised in excess of $7.5 million-funds that helped connect kids in need with nutritious food where they live, learn and play, and educated families on ways to cook healthy, affordable meals. Since its launch in 2008, Dine Out For No Kid Hungry has raised more than $18 million.
