New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
This October, New York City restaurants and foodies will channel their passion for food into lifesaving impact through Restaurants Against Hunger. Participating restaurants will support the campaign by designating a menu item to benefit Action Against Hunger, by giving patrons the option to add a donation on their check, or donating a percentage or proceeds for the month.
Every $1 raised will help Action Against Hunger provide one day of lifesaving treatment to a child in need. Every 30 seconds, a child dies of acute malnutrition, and Restaurants Against Hunger will help New Yorkers change that global reality. The New York City campaign is joined by an international network of restaurants supporting Action Against Hunger in London, Toronto, and Madrid.
Food Brings People Together! New Yorkers can help do their part to fight world hunger by dining at their favorite Restaurants Against Hunger throughout the month. Reservations can also be made through Restaurants Against Hunger sponsor OpenTable. To view the details of each restaurant, visit actionagainsthunger.org/restaurants-against-hunger.
