TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) September 15, 2020
Checkers & Rally’s, an iconic and innovative drive-thru restaurant chain known for bold and flavorful food at an exceptional value and its people-first attitude, is once again partnering with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America, for its Dine, Shop & Share campaign. The campaign unites brands to help provide meals to kids through consumer and corporate donations.
Checkers & Rally’s first partnered with No Kid Hungry at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic by donating $100,000, which can help provide up to 1 million meals to children in need. Now through October 11th, the brand will donate $.10 for every Classic Cone sold at participating locations. Every 10 Classic Cones sold can help provide up to 10 meals for kids.*
“1 in 4 kids in the United States could face hunger this year due to the impact of COVID-19,” said Checkers & Rally’s CEO Frances Allen. “We’re proud to be partnering with No Kid Hungry for its Dine, Shop & Share campaign in order to provide kids with the meals they so desperately need.”
“Back to school” is looking different this year, but as children start the new school year, millions are still struggling to get the most important school supply: food. All kids need healthy food to do their best at school, wherever that may be.
“With millions more kids facing hunger this year, the work that we’re doing to feed them is even more pressing,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “Thanks to generous partners like Checkers & Rally’s, we are ensuring that all children have access to healthy meals not just during this crisis but in the recovery to come.”
*$1 can provide up to 10 meals. Meal equivalency varies during COVID-19 relief. Learn more at NoKidHungry.org/OneDollar
