No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization working to end hunger and poverty. Support Mendocino Farms from October 15 through December 24 via donations at checkout to No Kid Hungry in the amounts of $1, $5, or $10 and help feed hungry kids. Throughout the month of September, by ordering our seasonal, fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes, you are making a difference in a hungry child’s life. Visit another participating restaurant in your area, or visit No Kid Hungry online and find out where you can volunteer, donate or otherwise become part of the movement. There is no requirement as to how long or when you run your promotion. However, September is Hunger Awareness Month, and so we do encourage restaurants to participate for the complete month of September. We also heavily promote Dine for No Kid Hungry in the media, on social, and on our website—directing consumers to participating restaurants—during September, so it has its advantages.
Guests who donated $1 to $4.99 received a voucher for a free Whoopie Pie on a future visit, and guests who donated $5 or more received a booklet of offers worth $45+ on future visits. Guests wrote their names on donation cards that employees posted in the cafes to show support for the cause. Many even created eye-catching displays with the signed cards that attracted additional attention to the cause and the promotion. Breakfast is about to taste a whole lot sweeter as everyone’s favorite breakfast spread Nutella is partnering with No Kid Hungry once again to give back this holiday season! Through its partnership with No Kid Hungry, the hazelnut spread has helped connect kids with up to 6 million meals and counting. There are good reasons why your restaurant should be a part of Dine for No Kid Hungry, and feeding hungry kids is just the first one. Join the fight to end childhood hunger, inspire your guests, engage your employees and support your bottom line.
Why does world hunger exist?
The main cause of hunger worldwide is poverty. Millions of people around the world are simply too poor to be able to buy food. They also lack the resources to grow their own food, such as arable land and the means to harvest, process, and store food.
Through a customized, valuable promotion that you design with our support, you’ll be doing well while doing good for kids all across America. Join us and learn how you can stand out when you stand up for No Kid Hungry. Corner Bakery promoted the program with in-store signage and table sleeves, its guest e-newsletter and through Facebook and Twitter. They also helped guests understand the importance of the cause by including local statistics about childhood hunger in the materials.

How we can stop hunger?
Education is the best weapon against poverty and hunger. It is especially powerful in underdeveloped countries. Education means better opportunity and more access to income and food. Additionally, some countries have food-for-education programs where students are given free food for coming to school.
Program School Meals Schools and school meal programs are at the heart of No Kid Hungry’s work to end child hunger. Shake Shack, a partner since 2012, has seen tremendous guest acceptance and enthusiasm around their annual Great American Shake Sale.

From quick service to fast casual to fine dining; from independent operators to franchisees or corporate-owned; from single to multi-unit…we will help you create a promotion that rocks.
Making Every Meal Matter
Sometimes a merchant will sell a particular item that appears to fit within the dining category, but the merchant may not have a merchant code that fits within that category. Therefore purchases with that merchant will not qualify for the promotion.
