More than 16 million children in America struggle with hunger, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).dineout logo This September, thousands of restaurants and chefs nationwide will band together to bring attention to this plight, and raise money to fund solutions, through Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. Last year, more than 8,200 restaurants across the country raised in excess of $5.9 million—funds to help connect kids in need with nutritious food where they live, learn and play, and educate families on ways to cook healthy, affordable meals.

Operators can be part of the child-hunger solution in three simple steps: —
* Registering their restaurants at http://www.dineoutfornokidhungry.org (registration is free),
* Creating fundraising promotions to run during the month of September including Dine Out For No Kid Hungry week September 15-21, and
* Donating the proceeds from that promotion to Share Our Strength.

A full online resource center, with how-to guides, templates for press releases to promote participation, downloadable point-of-purchase materials, fact sheets, and case histories from participating restaurants is available to registrants. Operators interested in learning more about Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry or wishing to see examples of how other independent and chain restaurants have created successful promotions can visit DineOutForNoKidHungry.org or contact Ashley Davis, adavis@strength.org.
