matchboxfoodgroup Announces Year-Long Fundraising Initiative Supporting Share Out Strength

From our friends at matchboxfoodgroup...

Dine Out at matchboxfoodgroup Restaurants and Help End Childhood Hunger

Funds raised support No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in America

In America, one in six children struggles with hunger. This year, matchboxfoodgroup is making every meal count by joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to raise funds for No Kid Hungry. From March 8, 2017, to March 8, 2018, matchbox American Kitchen + Spirit and Ted’s BULLETIN will donate 10 cents from every matchbox pizza and 10 cents of every Ted’s BULLETIN Ted’s Tart sold (up to $75,000) at all locations to help the fight against childhood hunger.

Chief Executive Officer of matchboxfoodgroup Peter D’Amelio said, “matchboxfoodgroup is grateful for the opportunity to partner with No Kid Hungry and give back to the community in which we serve and live. Childhood hunger is an important issue for all of us here at matchboxfoodgroup and we’re humbled to contribute to the fight against childhood hunger.”

In 2016, over 14,000 restaurants raised nearly $10 million through the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry program. In 2017, matchboxfoodgroup joins the campaign raising enough to provide 750,000 meals for kids struggling with hunger in this country.

Funds raised by matchboxfoodgroup will support No Kid Hungry’s work to connect vulnerable children to effective nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, creating public-private partnerships that work together to identify and break down barriers, allowing children access to meals, and teaching low-income families how to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy, affordable meals.

“Everyone - private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits - has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said 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. Then visit to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
