One in four kids in Arizona face hunger every day, and in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, more and more families are struggling to feed their kids. As most schools remain closed for in-person learning, it leaves many children without the daily meals they once relied on. To provide support to these children, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has partnered with Dine, Shop and Share for No Kid Hungryto raise awareness and to fight to end childhood hunger in America.
Throughout September, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month, guests who dine at any 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, up to a total of $25 per visit, guests will receive a bounce back card matching the donated amount to use on their next visit. All of the proceeds raised will benefit No Kid Hungry.
“The impact that coronavirus is having on childhood hunger is catastrophic and the fight to end it is imperative, now more than ever,” says Eric Greenwald, president of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. “We hope that our everlasting partnership with the Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry annual campaign educates the community on what starving children face daily, not knowing when or where their next meal will come from. We are committed to being part of the solution to end childhood hunger.”
Grimaldi’s dining rooms and outdoor patios have reopened following federal, state and local health department recommendations in order to help ensure they maintain a healthy and safe environment for everyone who enters. Guests can also place carryout orders online, by phone, or delivery orders through third party services. Find your neighborhood Grimaldi’s location HERE.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s September Dine, Shop and Share 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 helps provide 10 meals for hungry children.
“Seeing the impact that Grimaldi’s can have in the Arizona communities is an honor,” says Greenwald. “Our guest participation means a lot to us and we’re thankful to them every day.”
