When children get the food they need, they feel better, learn more and grow up stronger. Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry raises funds critically needed to support the No Kid Hungry campaign which is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
New York City restaurants participating include Havana Central and Bourbon Street Bar and Grill in the Theater District, Greensquare Tavern, BLT Fish Shack and Allison Eighteen in Flatiron.
Participating national chains include Arby’s, Benchmarc Restaurants by Marc Murphy, Bruegger’s Bagels, Denny’s, Corner Bakery Cafe, Fuddrucker’s, Joe’s Crab Shack, La Madeleine, Legal Sea Foods, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, Shari’s Restaurant and Pies, Ted’s Montana Grill, Togo’s.
