Captain D's is showing its philanthropic side by joining the Share Our Strength's Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign. The program connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to eat healthy and affordable meals, while raising national awareness of the childhood hunger epidemic that affects one in five children.
Captain D's, the 512-unit restaurant chain in 26 states, said in a statement that its commitment to its customers goes beyond just the food they serve to families at an affordable price. "We fully support No Kid Hungry's mission to raise awareness about childhood hunger and look forward to uniting with other restaurants across the nation to make a difference in the communities we serve and the lives of families in need," said Phil Greifeld, Captain D's chief executive officer.
From September 7 - 30, participating Captain D's locations nationwide will be selling fundraiser cards for one dollar, inclusive of $10 worth of Captain D's coupons. Every dollar raised will translate into 10 meals for families in need in America. The brand ran the program at 29 restaurants in Birmingham this past summer and exceeded expectations by raising more than $30,000 for No Kid Hungry. Since its launch in 2008, participating Dine Out restaurants have raised $28 million in support of No Kid Hungry to help ensure every kid gets three meals a day.
