Dine Out at Mellow Mushroom in September and Help End Childhood Hunger

Funds Raised Support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® Campaign Ending Childhood Hunger in America

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 11, 2014 - More than 16 million American children face hunger. This September, Mellow Mushroom is joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign by raising funds in their restaurants. During the month of September at Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers, there are three exciting ways to be a part of this initiative.

  1. For every order of Buffalo Chicken Pizza and Oven Roasted Wings, Mellow Mushroom will donate $1 on your behalf to the No Kid Hungry campaign.
  2. Place a donation in store of $1 or more, and you will receive a mushroom with your name to pin on the wall.
  3. Through the end of September, for every $10 donation made online at http://www.nokidhungry.org/mellowmushroom, you will receive an entry to one of two trips. One to the Hard Rock All-Inclusive resort destination of your choice or brew beer with the Brew master in Fort Collins, Colorado, at the New Belgium Brewery.

"Childhood hunger is a very serious issue in this country, and we want to be a part of the solution" Annica Kreider, vp of brand development for the Mellow Mushroom brand. Annica continues, "This year our goal is $100,000 which will connect kids with 1 million meals."

In 2013, restaurants raised nearly $8 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign - funds 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 nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals; 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 everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day."
