Fuzzy's Taco Shop, the award-winning, fast-casual Baja-style Mexican restaurant company famous for its addictive Baja soft tacos and all-day breakfast, is helping end childhood hunger through its participation in and promotion of the nationwide month-long Dine Out for No Kid Hungry fundraising campaign.

All 83 Fuzzy's Taco Shops nationwide will donate $0.25 from each souvenir fountain drink cup sold during the month of September. This new collectible cup is in the same "End it with Orange" color used throughout the No Kid Hungry campaign. Guests can easily donate their Fuzzy's Taco Shop reward points (in increments of 25) using their Fuzzy's "Friends with Benefits" loyalty app. For every 25 points gifted via the app, Fuzzy's Taco Shop will donate $1 to the No Kid Hungry campaign.

The Dine Out for No Kid Hungry is the largest restaurant-led fundraiser in the country and is a campaign of the national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength. Every year, the restaurant industry unites to prove feeding people for a living is more than a profession; it's a passion. According to the organization, one in five kids in America struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign hopes to end child hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. A $1 donation to the organization can help connect a child facing hunger with up to 10 meals.

Although this is the first time for Fuzzy's Taco Shop to participate in Share our Strength's annual Dine Out for No Kid Hungry Campaign, it's not the first time for the family-friendly restaurants to raise funds for the No Kid Hungry cause or for children in general. Two years ago, to help celebrate its 10-year anniversary, Fuzzy's held a month-long fund raising initiative that generated a $75,000 donation to Share Our Strength. And, over the last six years, Fuzzy's Taco Shop has held annual golf tournaments and annual "Cups for Kids" souvenir cup fundraising campaigns that have contributed a total of more than $143,000 to the Wish for Wings charitable organization that grants “magical wishes for little Texans with life-threatening conditions."

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is known for its casual, fun ambiance and generous helpings of uniquely flavorful Baja-style Mexican fare. Fuzzy's menu features its original take on the Baja taco, which is often referred to as “addictive” thanks to the garlic sauce and feta cheese that make it so distinctive. The restaurants also serve a wide array of handmade enchiladas, jumbo salads, nachos, burritos, and Fuzzy's signature white queso and chips, as well as offer a kid's menu, and various catering packages.  Fuzzy’s Taco Shops serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and most locations offer a generous selection of beer, wine, margaritas, and other specialty cocktails, as well as free Wi-Fi and dog-friendly patios. Diners can earn discounts and free menu items via the Fuzzy's Taco Shop "Friends with Benefits" mobile app, available for download on Google Play or via iTunes.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop was recently named to website and mobile app Urbanspoon's annual list of "Top American Eateries for Cheap Eats," and was among the 12 quick-service and fast-casual brands named "Best Franchise Deals" by QSR magazine in the publication's annual report.
