More than 17 million kids in America are at risk of hunger, and almost one in four of those children are struggling with hunger today. Togo’s Sandwiches announced it has teamed up with Share Our Strength, a national non-profit with a “No Kid Hungry” strategy to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. All 240 restaurants in California, Nevada, and Oregon will raise funds and increase awareness of this national campaign, while urging its customers to become advocates.
“In the U.S., more than 50 million people struggle yearly to put food on the table,” says Togo’s CEO and Chairman Tony Gioia. “Togo’s is extremely proud and honored to partner with Share Our Strength, as we are committed to raise funds and be part of the movement that will ensure the children of our nation are receiving the nutritious food that they need to ‘learn, grow, and thrive.’”
Starting on September 1, for every dollar or more donated to Share our Strength, guests will receive a free 20 oz. fountain drink for their next visit. This will run in conjunction to Share our Strength’s “Dine Out For No Kid Hungry” campaign that is happening throughout the country at participating multi-chain and individual restaurants.
Through in-store displays, crew involvement, and digital marketing and PR, Togo’s will promote the partnership with Share Our Strength in support of ending childhood hunger in America.
