LAS VEGAS – One in five children in the United States face hunger every day. In an effort to combat this problem, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has joined the fight to raise awareness and end childhood hunger in America. Throughout September, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month, guests who dine at any Nevada Grimaldi’s Pizzeria location can donate to No Kid Hungry, a charitable organization working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. Guests will be able to donate $5 to No Kid Hungry, and will receive $5 back to use on their next visit to Grimaldi’s. 100% of the raised proceeds will benefit No Kid Hungry.
“No child should have to worry about where their next meal is going to come from. The struggle of childhood hunger hits close to home, and knowing that Grimaldi’s can make a difference means a lot. Everyone within the Grimaldi’s family is looking forward to partnering with No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in our local communities,” said Eric Greenwald, President of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and No Kid Hungry Board Member.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry ®. In 2014, Grimaldi’s raised $70,000, and the 11,000 participating restaurants raised a total of $8.9 million for the campaign. This year, the restaurant wants to exceed last years fundraising efforts and raise an additional 25% for the organization. Funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S., support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy dishes with limited resources.
About Grimaldi’s Pizzeria
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has 38 locations across Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, California, Colorado, Idaho, and Louisiana.
