Bravo and Brio Connect Children in Need to 1.5 Million Meals
BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille locations across the nation thank their guests and employees for rallying around Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign in September 2014.
BRAVO! and BRIO restaurants, owned and operated by BRAVO I BRIO Restaurant Group (BBRG), collected enough donations to help connect children in need across the country to 1.5 million meals.
BRAVO! and BRIO joined thousands of restaurants nationwide inviting guests to dine out this September to support the No Kid Hungry campaign, and its work to end childhood hunger in America. From Sept. 8–30, 2014, BRAVO! and BRIO restaurants nationwide offered guests the opportunity to donate $5 or more on their check to No Kid Hungry, and in turn receive $5 off their next visit of $15 or more, valid through Oct. 31, 2014.
"Giving back to our local communities and partnering with causes like No Kid Hungry is one of our greatest priorities, not only at BBRG, but at each of our restaurants nationwide," says BBRG CEO Saed Mohseni. "We are very proud to participate in the No Kid Hungry campaign, and appreciate the enthusiasm of our team members and generosity of our guests."
The No Kid Hungry campaign is working to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring children have the healthy food they need, every day. No Kid Hungry connects children in need to effective nutrition programs, like school breakfast or summer meals, and teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals at home.
Every $1 donated counts and can help connect a child in need with up to 10 meals. BBRG was proud to have collected $150,000 in donations from in-store promotions, which in turn will help connect children in need with 1.5 million meals.
