PHOENIX, (August 7, 2018) – One in six children in the United States, and one in four kids in Arizona, face hunger every day. That means more than 13 million kids live in food-insecure homes. In an effort to end this problem, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has partnered with Dine Out for No Kid Hungrythe fight to raise awareness and end childhood hunger in America.
Throughout September, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month, guests who dine at any Arizona Grimaldi’s Pizzeria location can donate to No Kid Hungry, a charitable organization working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. For every $5 donated in their pizzerias, Grimaldi’s will provide guests with a special No Kid Hungry cannoli.
“No child should have to worry about where their next meal is going to come from. The struggle of childhood hunger hits close to home, and knowing that Grimaldi’s can make a difference means a lot. Grimaldi’s loves being able to partner with the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign year after year, and it’s incredible to see the restaurant community come together for a great cause,” says Eric Greenwald, President and COO of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s September Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign. This organization relies on the generous support from local businesses. For several years the nonprofit has partnered with many Valley restaurants, food banks and school districts. Every $1 donated to No Kid Hungry provides 10 meals for hungry children.
“Helping the communities in Arizona is an honor and we are so thankful to our guests for supporting our mission,” says Greenwald. “Knowing that Grimaldi’s can make a difference means a lot.”
