SPARTANBURG, S.C., Sept. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Denny's is partnering with No Kid Hungry® for the 10th year in an effort to help end childhood hunger in America. Today through November 3, guests across the country will have the opportunity to "round up" their restaurant checks to the nearest dollar for No Kid Hungry, and to donate $1 to No Kid Hungry when placing orders online through Denny's on Demand at checkout.
"We are proud to be celebrating our tenth year of partnering with No Kid Hungry and remain committed to feeding our communities during this time of heightened need," said John Dillon, chief brand officer for Denny's. "Spare change can help create real change in the lives of children across the country. As America's Diner, Denny's will always lend a helping hand and give back to the communities we serve."
Every dollar donated to No Kid Hungry can feed a child up to 10 healthy meals.* Over the past nine years, Denny's and its guests have contributed $9 million in donations, which can provide up to 90 million meals to kids in need.
"Denny's has been an invaluable partner in the fight to end childhood hunger for the past 10 years, and we're so grateful to once again have their support at such a critical time of need," says Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. "One in four children could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus, and Denny's support for No Kid Hungry will help us ensure that kids nationwide get the meals they need, during this crisis and beyond."
As America's Diner, Denny's commitment to feeding people extends beyond restaurants and No Kid Hungry. Denny's Mobile Relief Diner travels from coast to coast feeding those who have been impacted by natural disasters and has served nearly 33,000 meals since its launch in 2017.
