Monical’s Supports Dine Out for No Kid Hungry

Monicals’s Pizza is proud to announce its participation in Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a week-long national restaurant event in cities across the United States. From September 18–24, Monical’s will offer 20 percent off a one topping Family Pleaser, and make a $1 donation for every Family Pleaser purchased, to No Kid Hungry. Participating store locations are available at DineOutForNoKidHungry.org and www.monicalspizza.com.

This is one of the many ways thousands of restaurants all across America will be raising funds this September to support No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength’s national campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. More than 17 million children in America—almost one in four—struggle with hunger. With the support of thousands of restaurants like Monical’s Pizza, dozens of corporate partners and millions of consumers, Share Our Strength is changing that.

“Monical’s has been a an active supporter of numerous community services throughout our 51-year history,” says President Janelle Reents. “I can think of no better effort than to eliminate childhood hunger in America. That’s a cause we can get behind.”

“We are asking everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and other nonprofits—to help us end childhood hunger in this country,” says Bill Shore, founder of Share Our Strength.  “We continue to be amazed by the generosity and commitment of the restaurant industry and its customers. Last year, they raised more than $1.5 million through Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a record high and twice what was raised the year before. Our goal is to involve as many restaurants and their customers as it takes to make No Kid Hungry a reality by 2015.”

Shore encourages everyone to dine out at participating Dine Out For No Kid Hungry restaurants in September, then visit Strength.org to learn what else they can do.

Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry is sponsored by Sysco, Ecolab, American Express, USA Today, and the National Restaurant Association.
