Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has donated a total of $110,000 to No Kid Hungry through its fundraising initiatives in 2020, including the annual Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign and a portion from the “Gratitude Fund” contribution from PepsiCo Frito-Lay and the “Flavor Icons” partnership earlier this year.
Since Grimaldi’s partnership with the nonprofit began in 2013, the pizzeria has raised more than $ 1 million to date to fight childhood hunger. For each dollar raised, No Kid Hungry can provide 10 meals to hungry children across the U.S. In September, guests who dined at any location received a bounce back card to match donations in increments of $5, up to a total of $25 per visit.
“Despite the challenges we’ve faced as a nation, within the restaurant industry, and at a personal level this year, I am so proud to see the way our communities have come together to continue supporting No Kid Hungry’s efforts to end childhood hunger,” says Eric Greenwald, president of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. “We are grateful for the opportunity to continue building a strong relationship between Grimaldi’s and No Kid Hungry as we look forward to our ninth year of partnership.”
