Guests can donate to the cause through Oct. 12 at restaurants nationwide; every dollar helps to feed a hungry child up to 10 meals
SPARTANBURG, S.C., Sept. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Each day in America, one in five children struggles with hunger and doesn’t receive the proper food and nutrition they need. Denny’s (#DennysNKH) is once again helping to raise money and awareness so that one day no child will have to start or end the day on an empty stomach. Beginning today, America’s Diner is kicking-off its fifth annual fundraising efforts for No Kid Hungry®. This year Denny’s is striving to make an even greater impact on the cause, to which they have donated $2.3 million to-date, helping provide 23 million meals to kids in need across the country.
Now through Oct. 12, nearly 1,600 Denny’s restaurants nationwide will join the campaign and help the fight against childhood hunger. For just a $3 donation, guests will receive $9 worth of coupons for diner favorites, redeemable at participating locations. Guests may also contribute to the campaign with a monetary donation of their choice at dennysnokidhungry.com.
“At Denny’s we love to feed people, and we’re committed to ensuring that kids across the country have access to a wholesome breakfast, the most important meal of the day,” said Denny’s Chief Executive Officer John Miller. “No Kid Hungry is one of the most recognized and impactful anti-hunger campaigns in the country, and we’re proud of our longstanding partnership with them, working together to combat childhood hunger and help make a difference, one meal at a time.”
Denny’s restaurants will be adorned with orange, the signature campaign color, to show their continued support for No Kid Hungry. Plus, the much-loved characters of DreamWorks Animation’s award-winning film and television franchises such as The Adventures of Puss In Boots, DinoTrux and Shrek will be featured on in-store fundraising elements encouraging guests to pledge their support and join Denny’s in helping make No Kid Hungry a reality.
“We’re thrilled to have one of our biggest supporters, Denny’s, on board again this year for Dine Out for No Kid Hungry,” said Share Our Strength’s Chief Development Officer, Chuck Scofield. “Year after year, Denny’s continues to inspire us with their passion and authentic commitment to No Kid Hungry. We truly couldn’t do our work without their support.”
