Togo’s Aims To Raise $30K For No Kid Hungry

Togo’s Eateries is teaming up for the third year with its nearly 250 restaurants along the West Coast to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

Through September 30, Togo’s guests will receive a free 20-ounce fountain drink for every $1 donation made to No Kid Hungry.

In addition, Togo’s is encouraging guests to visit its Facebook fan page and “Give a Like to Change a Life.” For the first time, Togo’s will donate $1 to the No Kid Hungry campaign for every like received on its Facebook page during September for up to 10,000 new fans.

Togo’s aims to raise more than $30,000 through its in-store efforts and social media outreach. Over the past two years, Togo’s has donated more than $51,000 to help end childhood hunger in the U.S.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with the No Kid Hungry campaign and bring together the communities we serve for this great cause,” says Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo’s Holdings. “We want to make sure that every child in America gets the proper nutrition they need, so we encourage everyone to dine out throughout the month of September to help bring an end to childhood hunger in our country.”

Last September alone, diners across the country, including Togo’s guests, helped raised nearly $6 million to support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s efforts.

“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” says Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
