Dine Out for No Kid Hungry

I fed starving children today.  What did you do?

No, I didn’t breastfeed them.  My inappropriately placed sticker is more than a pastie.  It represents several restaurants across the country participating in the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry program.

“Every September, Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry™ brings together thousands of restaurants and their customers to raise funds for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. This year, more than 6,500 restaurants are extending their participation through the end of September.”

While staying in Anna Maria Island, my girlfriends and I happened upon the Sandbar and learned about its involvement with the program.  With every grouper or hamburger purchase, the Sandbar will donate $1 to Dine Out For No Kid Hungry.

Even one dollar can go a long way as one in five children in the U.S. struggles with hunger.  That equals 16 million children.  Therefore, “every gift helps us connect hungry kids to the food they need”. – No Kid Hungry

There is still plenty of time to participate.  The Dine Out For No Kid Hungry program runs through to the end of September.  So dine out and do some good in your ‘hood today.
