Noodles & Company, serving classic noodle and pasta dishes from its globally inspired World Kitchen, announced that they will celebrate “Family Nights” every Thursday throughout the month of November (with the exception of Thanksgiving). As part of this event, children will receive one free Kids Meal with an adult entrée purchase.

Noodles & Company continues to nourish and inspire guests through its Kids Meal offering, as well as its involvement with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. On Thursdays in November, guests are encouraged to bring one nonperishable food item to donate to a local food bank, in effort to end the fight against childhood hunger.

“Our mission is to always nourish and inspire every team member, guest and community we serve,” says Mark Mears, executive vice president and CMO of Noodles & Company. “The goal of our new ‘Family Night’ events is to bring the family back together over a bowl of noodles. We want to not only nourish our guests and their family relationships, but to also inspire them to help feed hungry children within our communities.”

Noodles & Company is also offering various activities to millennial families during “Family Nights.” To further inspire kids while they fuel up, Noodles & Company will challenge young guests with a thought-provoking and highly interactive activity placemat the whole family can work on while enjoying their dishes. Founded upon the principles of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics), this interactive placemat will feature a variety of brain teasers, puzzles, games, fun facts, as well as a link to videos highlighting the achievements of kids from around the world who have used these principles to invent, innovate, or inspire positive change.

“We know that today’s kids represent tomorrow’s future as they will face a more complex set of challenges than at any point in history. Therefore, our goal at Noodles & Company is to empower kids to ‘Use Your Noodle / Make A Difference’ in ways that help make their communities— and indeed our world a better place—one bowl at a time,” Mears says.
