FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuzzy's Taco Shop has partnered with Share Our Strength's "No Kid Hungry" initiative in their mission of ensuring all children get the healthy food they need to thrive.

On September 9th, the No Kid Hungry "Hunger Can't Wait Road Trip" will visit the Fuzzy's Taco Shop location at 407 W Eldorado Pkwy in Little Elm for a free community event.

"In America today, 1 in 6 kids faces hunger, so it's more important than ever to contribute to programs like No Kid Hungry that are helping children gain access to necessities like a healthy breakfast at school and free meals during the summertime," said Mel Knight, president of Fuzzy's Taco Shop. "We are excited to partner with Share Our Strength for the fifth year because as an organization, we're passionate about doing our part in making No Kid Hungry a reality in America."
Donations made at Fuzzy's Taco Shop in September will help No Kid Hungry fund school breakfast programs, recruit summer meal sites, and empower families to shop for and prepare healthy meals. Last September, Fuzzy's Taco Shop raised more than $93,000 for No Kid Hungry and hopes to surpass that amount this year as they "Queso for a Cause." Each $2 donation provides a child with 20 meals through the Share Our Strength initiative.
Share Our Strength started on Capitol Hill in 1984 because of the famine in Ethiopia going on at the time. While the organization, started by brother and sister duo Bill and Debbie Shore, had many focuses globally for fighting hunger and poverty, Share Our Strength focuses their efforts, now, on making No Kid Hungry a true reality in America.
