Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) No child should go hungry, but one in six kids lives with hunger in the United States. At no time is food insecurity higher than in the summer when many children go without access to the meals they receive at school.
Starting today, Genghis Grill is partnering with No Kid Hungry, to help end childhood hunger in America through a month-long fundraising campaign. The timing of the campaign is meant to address this key summer gap.
“The fact that so many kids face hunger in America is unacceptable,” said Doug Willmarth, Chief Marketing Officer at Genghis Grill. “We want to do what we can to not only raise awareness of this important issue, but also raise funds that will directly impact the lives of children in need. We’re grateful to be able to partner with No Kid Hungry in the fight to end childhood hunger.”
From May 10 through June 9, guests can contribute by donating $3 or more to purchase a No Kid Hungry pin-up. The pin-ups, with guest names written on them, will be placed on restaurant walls as a sign of support and to help raise awareness. Genghis Grill will also give guests who donate a $5 bounceback gift card to use on their next visit.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support from Genghis Grill,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “With the help of committed partners like them, No Kid Hungry is helping children all over the country get the food they need to succeed.”
