One in five children in America lives in a household without adequate access to food, according to the USDA, and this September, Salata is joining No Kid Hungry’s national campaign to help end childhood hunger.
For its inaugural partnership with the organization, Salata will sell $5 coupon booklets at its 49 locations throughout Texas, California, and Illinois, with all proceeds going to No Kid Hungry. Valued at $12, the coupons are redeemable for a variety of free items including premium toppings like avocado, signature drinks, and more.
For every dollar raised, No Kid Hungry can provide 10 meals to children in need.
“Our mission is to serve customized, healthy options to our customers, and No Kid Hungry is committed to ensuring kids get the healthy foods they need,” says Salata founder Berge Simonian. “We hope our guests will join us in supporting this very worthy campaign to provide relief to families in their communities.”
Since the campaign’s inception, No Kid Hungry and its partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 345 million additional meals.
“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, the nonprofit that runs the No Kid Hungry campaign. “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.”
