No Kid Hungry Dine Out

September 12, 2014 ,

No Kid Hungry

No Kid Hungry

This week you can dine lavishly so that others may simply dine. We have a problem feeding hungry children in the United States. This should be an embarrassment to the wealthy.  If you feel that you can help this worthy cause by just taking your restaurant business to a participating local partner this week, please do. Just enter the zip code where you live and you will discover which places are involved in your area.  When you mention the program your partner restaurant will make a donation to No Kid Hungry based on the amount you spend.   In our area the participating businesses are mostly bagels, Denny’s, and pizza.  One of the pizza places making donations is near our home and we have never eaten their famous coal fired pizza.

Grimaldi’s Coal Fired Brick Oven will be whipping out some weekend party food for our house.  They are a chain, but a relatively small one.  Here is a glimpse of the Grimaldi’s in Denver:

I look forward to trying the crispy crust, but even more I will keep them in mind because they are supporting this very worthy cause.  I like to spend my money where my mouth is…in this case many mouths will benefit.  Join me this week to help end childhood hunger, while I deal with our adult hunger in a creative and tasty way.

Hi Pamela, to my shame I have to admit that I did not know that there are children in the US that do not have enough to eat and just notice that I don’t even know it for Europe or my own country.

I like the idea that restaurants participate in this project and hope that it well be a win-win-situation for them and the kids.

we have a few dine out schemes like this in the UK. Smart I think although a little counter intuitive at first

Food Network is heavily involved as well. It is crazy to have all these starving kids and waste so much food at the same time..
