“Mellow Mushroom is proud to be participating in the 2012 Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. Mellow supports the Share Our Strength mission of providing every child in America access to nutritious food to enable him or her to live healthy, active lives. We know our guests will appreciate Mellow Mushroom’s participation in a program aimed at solving one of this nation’s most troubling issues—childhood hunger,” explains Annica Kreider, VP of Brand Development.
Now in its fifth year, Dine Out For No Kid Hungry has raised more than $4 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign—funds that are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S.; create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need; support school breakfast, summer and after-school meal programs; and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “I encourage people to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then, visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that all children in America have access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
