California Tortilla Helps End Child Hunger with No Kid Hungry, Raises Over $17,000 for the Charity

Fast Casual Favorite Donates $1 to No Kid Hungry® for Every "Fresh Deal" Sold September 7 - 13

September 29, 2014 // // ROCKVILLE, MD - At California Tortilla, hungry customers craving signature burritos, salads, and more re-imagined Mexican favorites come in every day, leaving full and satisfied. But there are many who struggle to afford a well-rounded meal, for themselves and for their children. Which is why California Tortilla teamed up with Share Our Strength to support Dine Out For No Kid Hungry®, making sure that kids get the nourishment they need to stay happy and healthy.

From September 7 – September 13th California Tortilla asked customers to upgrade their meal to a "Fresh Deal", which added a drink and side item or dessert to their meal for just $2.99, and they would donate $1.00 from each Fresh Deal sold. California Tortilla restaurants nationwide raised nearly $15,000 while the Corporate office donated an additional $2500, bringing their total donation to just over $17,000.

No Kid Hungry is a non-profit making it its mission to end child hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals, educating and empowering low-income families to make sure their kids get healthy meals at home, and working to shine a national spotlight on the crisis. California Tortilla has worked with No Kid Hungry for several years, donating over $100,000 since their partnership began.

"This donation will go a long way to helping many children and families in need," said Robert Phillips, President of California Tortilla, Inc. "We are proud to support the efforts of No Kid Hungry, and thank our loyal customers for making it all possible."
