Mongolian Concepts presented check on Aug. 8
Genghis Grill, along with Mongolian Concepts’ sister brands bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill – partnered with No Kid Hungry in May and June to battle childhood hunger in America, specifically targeting the rise of hunger during summer break when many children go without access to the meals they receive at school.
After the three restaurant concepts dedicated two months to fundraising for No Kid Hungry, Genghis Grill presented a check of $50,000 to the nonprofit on Aug. 8.
“We are humbled that we will be able to provide nearly 500,000 meals to hungry children,” said Jim Vinz, CEO of Genghis Grill. “The fight to end childhood hunger is a constant battle. We will continue to stand with No Kid Hungry in this fight.”
“The support from all three Mongolian Concepts’ brands enables us to help children all over the country get the food they need to succeed,” said Diana Hovey, senior vice president at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “We value our committed partners like Genghis Grill, bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill who take a stand and join us in this battle.”
