One in four kids in Arizona face hunger every day, and in the wake of the lingering coronavirus pandemic, more and more families are facing poverty and struggling to feed their kids. To provide support to these children, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has partnered with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry for the tenth year to raise funds, awareness and to fight to end childhood hunger in America.
Throughout September, in honor of Hunger Awareness Month, guests who dine at any Grimaldi’s Pizzeria location can donate to No Kid Hungry, a charitable organization working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day. For every $5 donated at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria restaurants, up to a total of $25 per visit, guests will receive a bounce back card matching the donated amount to use on their next visit. All the proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit No Kid Hungry. All Valley Grimaldi’s Pizzeria locations will be participating, except their Grimaldi’s Pizzeria To-Go location at Scottsdale & Shea.
“Due to the pandemic, millions more kids face hunger each day and the impact is absolutely devastating. Childhood hunger is a solvable problem that we’ve been committed to addressing for ten years now,” says Eric Greenwald, president of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. “We hope that our ongoing partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry annual campaign both raises money and awareness on what starving children face daily, not knowing when or where their next meal will come from.”
Grimaldi’s dining rooms and outdoor patios have reopened following federal, state and local health department recommendations in order to help ensure they maintain a healthy and safe environment for everyone who enters. Guests can also place carryout orders online, by phone, or delivery orders via the grimaldispizzeria.com website as well as third party services. Find your neighborhood Grimaldi’s location HERE.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s September No Kid Hungry campaign. This organization relies on the generous support from local businesses. For several years the nonprofit has partnered with many restaurants, food banks and school districts. Every $1 donated to No Kid Hungry can help provide up to 10 meals for a child.
“Seeing the impact that Grimaldi’s can have in the Arizona communities is an honor,” says Greenwald. “Our guest participation means a lot to us and we’re thankful to them every day.”
