This week, from September 20-26, thousands of restaurants are participating in the Great American Dine Out with the intention of raising money to support an anti-hunger campaign.

According to Share Our Strength's website:

"The first annual Share Our Strength's Great American Dine Out rallied nearly 4,000 restaurants across the nation—from coffee shops to fine dining restaurants—and millions of consumers. These restaurants participated in a variety of ways— donated a percentage of sales, promoted select menu items, collected money from suppliers and guests and much more. The funds raised from this campaign will support:

  • Increasing participation in school food and nutrition programs
  • Increasing the number of community gardens
  • Food banks and food pantries
  • Increasing access to fresh produce
  • Increasing utilization of federal child food and nutrition programs, e.g. food stamps, school breakfast, etc.
  • Advocacy around Child food and nutrition-related programs"

Check out Share Our Strength's website for participating restaurants in your area.
