DENVER, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Einstein Bros.® Bagels has teamed up with No Kid Hungry for a 21-day pledge to provide one million children in America with nutritious meals. With the (breakfast) table set, the nation's leading bagel retailer reached its goal to raise more than $100,000 just four days after kicking off the partnership.
"In less than a week, we surpassed our goal of donating one million meals to children in need and have raised money for more than 1,900,000 meals to date," said Kerry Coyne, Einstein Bros. Bagels SVP of Marketing, R&D, and Catering. "The achievement is a testament to our loyal guests, who clearly have an appetite for giving back. With another week left in our pledge, our sights are now set on delivering over two million meals to No Kid Hungry."
The work isn't over yet – Einstein Bros.® Bagels is encouraging guests to continue to show their support and give back, as just a $2 donation can feed healthy meals to 20 children in need. For every $2 that any guest donates to No Kid Hungry now through Tuesday, May 2, they will receive a coupon book with almost $8 worth of free product offerings valid at participating Einstein Bros. Bagel locations while supplies last.
Childhood hunger is threatening the next generation of leaders, innovators and problem-solvers. No Kid Hungry is working to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food and families learn valuable skills necessary to shop and cook on limited budgets.
"Einstein Bros.® Bagels and its guests have gone above and beyond in support of our mission, and we are grateful for the impact they've made in such a short time," said Diana Hovey, Senior Director, Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. "With one in six children in America living in a household that struggles to put food on the table, it is vital for us to continue to work together with great partners like Einstein Bros. Bagels to put an end to childhood hunger."
