Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry™, a national fundraiser that gives restaurants the opportunity to help end childhood hunger, is literally just around the corner. While the September 7 registration deadline is near, restaurants can still sign up.
By signing up to participate in Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, restaurants are able to support a cause customers care about. Restaurant size doesn’t matter–participants range from small independent restaurants to nationwide chains.
Dine Out For No Kid Hungry said past participants reported an increase in sales, 20 percent average coupon redemption rate and overall higher employee morale and customer satisfaction during the fundraiser.
The official week for the event is September 16-22; however Share Our Strength® welcomes and encourages restaurants to participate as much as they would like throughout the month.
