Grimaldi’s Pizzeria Raises Over $300,000 For
No Kid Hungry® To Help End Childhood Hunger In U.S.
All proceeds raised in September Dine Out Promotion will benefit No Kid Hungry
LAS VEGAS — Grimaldi’s Pizzeria would like to take a moment to thank its employees and patrons for rallying around No Kid Hungry® this September, raising more than $300,000 to help connect children in America to the nutritious food they need, every day. The restaurant offered guests a $5 gift card for every $5 donated during the entire month of September, joining thousands of restaurants nationwide in the No Kid Hungry campaign.
“One in five children in America struggles with hunger,” says Eric Greenwald, President of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and No Kid Hungry Board Member. “That’s a number we find completely unacceptable. Our promotion is just one way we can support No Kid Hungry, with the enthusiasm of our employees and generosity of our customers, to help make sure that every child in America gets the food they need to learn and thrive.”
No Kid Hungry connects 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 to giving children access to meals, and teaching low-income families how to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy, affordable meals.

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 39 locations across Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, California, Colorado, Idaho, and Louisiana.
