Boca Raton, Fla. (PRWEB) September 12, 2012 - Pizza Fusion (http://www.pizzafusion.com), a national socially responsible restaurant chain specializing in organic and all-natural pizza-making, has announced Dine Out For No Kid Hungry™, a national fundraising initiative for the month of September. At all of its U.S. restaurants, Pizza Fusion is collecting donations in support of No Kid Hungry (http://www.nokidhungry.org/), a non-profit organization committed to ending childhood hunger in the U.S. Money raised will aide No Kid Hungry foundation in ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals.
An astounding 16 million children struggle with hunger in America; one-third of which are under the age of five. One in five U.S. children regularly go without food. Studies show that children, who are unable to eat daily balanced meals, suffer a tremendous disadvantage in their physical and cognitive development. This impacts their ability to learn and, eventually, move forward in careers.
“It is heartbreaking to see how many kids in this country are affected by childhood hunger,” Vaughan Lazar, CEO and co-founder of Pizza Fusion, states. “I felt compelled to do something to help our country’s kids. As a restaurant, we provide a powerful vehicle for driving awareness and supporting this very important cause. We are proud to partner with No Kid Hungry in the fight to end childhood hunger in the U.S.”
Pizza Fusion is giving back to those who contribute to No Kid Hungry. When guests donate:
