bd’s Mongolian Grill Rallies to Help End Childhood Hunger this September
Popular Stir Fry Chain Raises Funds to Support No Kid Hungry®
August 31, 2016 // Franchising.com // Burnsville, Minn. - This September, bd’s Mongolian Grill is continuing its commitment to end childhood hunger in America by joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to partner with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. This marks the third year the restaurant has joined No Kid Hungry, this year with a goal of raising $3,000.
Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 16, guests can enjoy Kids’ Night pricing at all corporate bd’s restaurants, which includes $2.99 kid’s meals. Additionally, bd’s will donate 25 cents to No Kid Hungry for every No Kid Hungry ticket that children bring in from their schools. The school or classroom that brings in the most No Kid Hungry tickets the week of the fundraiser will receive a free catered party for 30 kids, featuring an appearance from Mongo Man.
“There are over 16 million kids across the country that deal with hunger every day,” said Joe Phraner, President and COO of bd’s Mongolian Grill. “Community is at the core of our company values, and with the help of bd’s loyal guests, we can make every meal count. Through this partnership with No Kid Hungry, we can make a difference in the lives of the one in five children who have inconsistent access to food.”
bd’s will also donate 25 cents to No Kid Hungry for every customer who shows bd’s e-blast, push notification from bd’s Rewards, Facebook advertisement, or OpenTable special.
Last year, bd’s raised more than $4,000 for the No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry 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.
