One in four kids in Arizona face hunger every day while many families are facing poverty and struggling to feed their kids. To provide support to these children, Grimaldiâ€™s Pizzeria has partnered with Dine, Shop and Share for 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 Grimaldiâ€™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, 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 raised will benefit No Kid Hungry.
â€œChildhood hunger is a solvable solution that weâ€™ve been committed to fighting for ten years now,â€ said. Eric Greenwald, president of Grimaldiâ€™s Pizzeria. â€œMillions more kids face hunger each day and we look forward to making a positive impact on these families. We hope that our everlasting partnership with the Share Our Strengthâ€™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.â€
Grimaldiâ€™s Pizzeria is one of thousands of restaurants nationwide that supports Share Our Strengthâ€™s September Dine, Shop and Share for No Kid Hungry campaign. This organization relies on the generous support from local businesses. For several years the nonprofit has partnered with many Valley restaurants, food banks and school districts. Every $1 donated to No Kid Hungry helps provide 10 meals for hungry children.
â€œSeeing the impact that Grimaldiâ€™s makes in the Arizona community is an honor,â€ says Greenwald. â€œOur guest participation means a lot to us and weâ€™re thankful to them every day.â€

In the world of pizza, Grimaldiâ€™s is an institution that has earned more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a â€œsecret recipeâ€ pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldiâ€™s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family-friendly pizzeria. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldiâ€™s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year. Grimaldiâ€™s Pizzeria has seven locations in Arizona, including Gilbert, Chandler, Peoria, Flagstaff, and three in the Scottsdale area. http://grimaldispizzeria.com/.
