I grew up in a neighborhood where everybody is on sponsored school lunches. Our breakfast meals consisted of pan dulce, donuts, frosted flakes and waffles with a maple syrup pouch. Lunch? The usual was pizza, hamburgers, chicken nuggets, and burritos. Even though it wasn’t the most delicious food, at least I didn’t go hungry. Not like so many other kids do. Take a look at some facts about kids in California:
With two kids under our roof, and nephews and nieces that visit on the weekends, I’m often reminded of just how much food kids consume. My two kids alone open and close the refrigerator at least fifteen times a day. So when campaigns like Denny’s No Kid Hungry come along, I’m all about supporting.
Denny’s No Kid Hungry Campaign
Through September 30th, nearly 1,600 Denny’s nationwide will sell coupons in support of No Kid Hungry’s efforts to help the more than 16 million American children struggling with hunger. For a $3 donation, guests will receive $9 worth of coupons redeemable at participating Denny’s restaurants. Every dollar donated helps feed a child up to 10 healthy meals.
You can also make a monetary donation of your choice at dennys.com/nokidhungry. Everyone who donates online will be e-mailed a coupon for $5 off their next $20 meal at Denny’s. Customers can also pledge their support by purchasing one of three exclusive No Kid Hungry campaign t-shirts – designed by Denny’s team members in Texas, Nevada and Kentucky – for $10 each. T-shirts are produced by Booster, available at dennys.com/nokidhungry and a portion of all sales goes directly to No Kid Hungry.
