Huddle Up For Hunger!
Huddle House Rallies Community to Fight Against Childhood Hunger
Fundraising Campaign for No Kid Hungry® Runs through October 8 at All Locations
September 18, 2017 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Recognized by the unmistakable hometown warmth that emanates from each and every diner, Huddle House locations nationwide are showing once again the strength of the emotional bonds shared with guests.
Huddle House is proud to announce that it has again partnered with the Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry® program, a nationwide effort to raise funds for kids in America who are under-nourished on a regular basis. Concluding its fundraising efforts October 8th, the “give and get” donation offers guests a meaningful way to join Huddle House in supporting the cause. After raising more than $40,000 in 2016, Huddle House is rallying guests across the country to help make an even larger impact this year in the fight against child hunger by setting a system wide fundraising goal of $50,000.
All Golden Waffle Sponsors are encouraged to post a picture with their Golden Waffle to Instagram using the hashtag #HuddleUpForHunger. At the end of the campaign, Huddle House will do a drawing of the submissions and one lucky Golden Waffle Sponsor will win a $500 Huddle House Gift Card.
“Hunger among children in lower income American families is a sad, harsh reality,” said Michael Abt, CEO of Huddle House. “At Huddle House, our mission is bringing friends and families together over delicious food served from the heart. By combining efforts with our diners and the community, we’ll be able to make an even larger impact this year in the fight against child hunger.”
The partnership with Share Our Strength in the No Kid Hungry Campaign is an opportunity for Huddle House to live out a mission with its guests to serve up bright futures by providing kids in need with the nourishment to succeed and thrive.
