Annual September promotion fights childhood hunger in the U.S.
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, raised more than $32,000 through the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry® program during its annual September campaign.
Paradies Lagardère venues and restaurants donated .25 cents for every cup of coffee sold and will also continue its year-round effort to support No Kid Hungry® by donating 25 percent of every kid’s meal sold and served in its restaurants. Currently, more than $60,000 has been raised for the organization since the beginning of the year.
“One in five children struggles with hunger in our country. Paradies Lagardère continues to work to combat the troubling issue of childhood hunger through its steadfast commitment to No Kid Hungry®,” said Cassie Nelson, vice president of Operations, Food and Beverage at Paradies Lagardère. “Since 2013, we’ve raised more than $215,000 for the organization, successfully increasing the amount raised each year. We look forward to building on those efforts this year as well.”
Funds raised support No Kid Hungry’s work to connect vulnerable children to effective nutrition programs such as School Breakfast and Summer Meals, create public-private partnerships that work together to identify and break down barriers to giving children access to meals, and teach low-income families how to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy, affordable meals.
