Corner Bakery Cafe raised over $250,000 for Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign this year to help end childhood hunger in America. Since 2008, Corner Bakery Cafe has donated $1.2 million in total contributions to Share Our Strength.

In the sixth year of their partnership with Share Our Strength, Corner Bakery Cafe held a system-wide in-store fundraiser from September 1 to September 29, in which guests who donated $1 or more to the No Kid Hungry campaign received a free Whoopee Cookie on their next visit. Guests who donated $5 or more received a booklet of special Corner Bakery Cafe offers valued at over $25.

Additionally, Corner Bakery Cafe held a secondary fundraising promotion featuring their all-natural Old-Fashioned Lemonade and new Hibiscus Lemonade. From July 29 to September 30, Corner Bakery Cafe donated $1 from every special edition 16 oz. tumbler purchase to No Kid Hungry. Guests who purchased the new custom-designed tumblers also received lemonade refills for $1 on return visits, with a portion of the proceeds also going to No Kid Hungry.

“It’s amazing every year to see our generous guests and dedicated team members come together like this and contribute to such an important cause,” says Diana Hovey, chief marketing officer of Corner Bakery Cafe. “We are all working towards one common goal: to make sure every child has a nutritious meal to eat.”
