Fuzzy’s Chips In with a goal of raising $150,000 for No Kid Hungry
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has again partnered with No Kid Hungry on their Dine For No Kid Hungry initiative to raise funds to end childhood hunger in the US. Throughout the month of September, guests at participating Fuzzy’s Taco Shop locations who donate $2 or more will receive a coupon for a free Chips & Queso on their next visit, all while helping ensure all children get the healthy food they need to thrive.
Dine for No Kid Hungry is a national restaurant campaign that raises critical funds and awareness to end childhood hunger in America. Last year, over 15,000 restaurants united in the fundraiser, and since 2008, No Kid Hungry’s restaurant partners and their guests have raised over $70 million to get kids the meals they need, every day.
“In America, one in six kids lives with hunger, so it’s more important than ever to contribute to No Kid Hungry to help children access necessities like a healthy breakfast at school and free meals during the summertime,” said Mel Knight, President of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. “At Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, we are in the business of feeding people, so it’s heartbreaking to know there are folks out there who don’t know where their next meal is coming from, especially when it comes to children. We are proud to partner with No Kid Hungry for the sixth year and help provide children in need with meals.”
Donations made at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in September will help No Kid Hungry fund school breakfast programs, launch and operate summer meal sites and provide afterschool meals to kids in need. Last September, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop raised more than $140,000 for No Kid Hungry . This year, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop hopes to surpass its record with a goal of raising $150,000 to help provide up to 1.5 million meals to hungry children in the United States.
