“In America, hunger is an issue for 1 in 5 children and we are honored to partner with No Kid Hungry to raise money to help end that struggle,” said Justin Lambeth, Chief Marketing Officer at Corner Bakery Cafe. “This year, our goal is to raise $250,000 for a total of over $2 million in contributions to No Kid Hungry since 2008. We’d like to thank our loyal guests for their generosity and support.”
In addition to the fundraiser, many cafes are donating a portion of the proceeds from every Lemon Buttercream Bottoms Up Bundt, Twisted Lemon Hand Pie, Lemon Bar, Lemon Pound Cake and Frozen Lemonade sold from July through September to No Kid Hungry.
