TOGO’S September Efforts To End Child Hunger In America
“West Coast Original” Kicks Off Third Annual Fundraiser to Benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign.
Togo’s Eateries, Inc., a “West Coast Original” since 1971, is teaming up for the third year with its nearly 250 restaurants along the West Coast to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. From Sept. 11-30, Togo’s guests have been receiving a free 20 oz. fountain drink for every $1 donation made to No Kid Hungry.
In addition, Togo’s has been encouraging guests to visit its Facebook fan page and “Give a Like to Change a Life.” For the first time, Togo’s will donate $1 to the No Kid Hungry campaign for every like received on its Facebook page during September for up to 10,000 new fans. Togo’s aims to raise more than $30,000 through its in-store and social media outreach. Over the past two years, Togo’s has donated over $51,000 to help end childhood hunger in the U.S.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with the No Kid Hungry campaign and bring together the communities we serve for this great cause,” said Tony Gioia, chairman and CEO of Togo’s Holdings, LLC. “We want to make sure that every child in America gets the proper nutrition they need, so we encourage everyone to dine out throughout the month of September to help bring an end to childhood hunger in our country.”
Last September alone, diners across the country, including Togo’s guests, helped raised nearly $6 million to support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s efforts.
“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”

About Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign
No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities.
