Popular Brand Will Take Part in Dine Out For No Kid Hungry for Seventh Consecutive Year
This September, Corner Bakery Cafe proudly announces its seventh year of partnership with Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in America.
September 1-28, Corner Bakery Cafe will offer sweet rewards to guests who contribute to the cause. Guests who donate $1 or more to No Kid Hungry will receive a free freshly baked Whoopee Pie on their next visit and those who donate $5 or more will receive a booklet of delicious offers valued at more than $25.
“Every year it’s heartwarming to see our staff and guests rally behind this important cause and raise money to end childhood hunger,” said Diana Hovey, Chief Marketing Officer at Corner Bakery Cafe. “We expect to raise $300,000 this year for a total of $1.5 million in contributions to Share Our Strength thanks to the generosity and support of our loyal guests.”
Earlier this summer, Corner Bakery Cafe kicked off their support for No Kid Hungry with a fundraiser for summer meals programs. The restaurant brand invited teachers in Washington, D.C. and Chicago aboard double-decker “Crave Cruisers” for a day of fun, food and giving back to children. Corner Bakery Cafe and the teachers visited Share Our Strength-affiliated summer meals sites and donated $1,000 to each location. As part of that fundraiser, a portion of the proceeds from every Lemon Whoopee Pie, Frozen Lemonade and Blueberry Lemonade Baby Bundt sold from July through September will go toward No Kid Hungry.
Since 2007, Corner Bakery Cafe has raised more than $1.2 million for Share Our Strength. For every dollar it receives, Share Our Strength connects 10 meals to children facing hunger in America.
Corner Bakery Cafe is a fast-casual restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to guests in 17 states and Washington, D.C.

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.
