Bakery Cafe Teams up with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry to Invite Chicago, D.C. Educators aboard ‘Crave Cruisers’ to Raise Money, Awareness for Kids in Need
Just as guests crave its mouthwatering, made-to-order food, Corner Bakery Cafe knows teachers crave giving back to kids. That’s why the popular restaurant brand has called on educators to help kick off its summer-long fundraiser for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger through a multi-city bus tour taking place this month.
On Wednesday, July 23 in Chicago and Tuesday, July 29 in Washington, D.C., Corner Bakery Cafe will invite local teachers aboard its double-decker “Crave Cruiser” for a day of fun, food, and giving back. The teachers will compete in friendly challenges, such as pancake flipping, to raise money for a local summer meals site. After a tour of the city, the Crave Cruiser will drive the educators to a No Kid Hungry summer meals site in each market to deliver freshly baked Blueberry Lemonade Bundt Bites and ice-cold Old Fashioned Lemonade for the kids and volunteers. Corner Bakery Cafe will also donate $1,000 to each summer meals program.
“Every year Corner Bakery Cafe looks forward to helping end childhood hunger through our partnership with No Kid Hungry,” said Diana Hovey, Chief Marketing Officer at Corner Bakery Cafe. “This year is extra special because we are partnering with teachers who have made it their lives’ work to help children by bringing attention to this very serious problem.”
The two-city program highlights Corner Bakery Cafe’s in-cafe fundraiser for No Kid Hungry. From July through September, Corner Bakery will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Frozen Lemonade, Lemon Whoopee Pie and Blueberry Lemonade Baby Bundt to the No Kid Hungry campaign. For every dollar it receives, No Kid Hungry can connect a child with up to 10 healthy meals.
Since 2008, Corner Bakery Cafe has raised more than $1.2 million in support of No Kid Hungry. Last year, Corner Bakery Cafe raised more than $250,000 to help end childhood hunger in America.

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities.
