The Kitchen Think: Dine Out to Help Out


September is “No Kid Hungry” month and here’s an easy way for you to help: feed yourself.


If you eat out at any one of more than 8,000 participating restaurants this month, you’ll be helping to end childhood hunger in this country. Did you know 1 in 5 kids live in households where there’s a struggle to put food on the table?

A portion of each restaurant’s September receipts will go to benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign and its work connecting kids at risk of hunger with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.

The restaurants vary from city to city… from upscale restaurants like Sprout in Chicago and Horatio’s in San Francisco to Sizzler’s, Denny’s and Corner Bakery. To find a restaurant near you, click here.

Let your friends know about this campaign. Just hit this share button here to post to Facebook or Twitter… or forward this blog post to your friends.

Here’s an idea: why not take the kids to one of the restaurants on the list. Talk to them about hunger in America and let them know how THEY are helping others by eating out.

But get moving… September is already half-over!

    Hello, stopping by from Bloggy Moms. I like your post! I didn’t know restaurants did that. It is a good reason to eat at a restaurant that participates in that program. Thanks for bringing it to light 🙂
