Denny’s Donating $1 million to No Kid Hungry
As part of its commitment to feeding the communities in which it serves, Denny’s will donate $1 million to No Kid Hungry to end childhood hunger in the U.S. This year’s donation will help provide 10 million meals to children in need across the country, marking this the largest contribution made by Denny’s in the company’s six-year partnership with No Kid Hungry. To date, Denny’s has donated more than $4.3 million to the cause, helping connect kids in need with over 43 million meals.
“Through the incredible support of Denny’s guests and the unwavering dedication of our team members and franchisees, we are proud to donate $1 million to No Kid Hungry and help connect children in need with access to healthy, consistent meals,” says John Miller, Denny’s president and chief executive officer. “Every dollar raised through Dine Out for No Kid Hungry helps to make a significant impact in the fight to end childhood hunger, and we are grateful for the generosity of those who participated in this year’s record-breaking effort for Denny’s.”
This year’s campaign ran from September through mid-December, with each $1 donation from guests providing 10 healthy meals to children in the U.S. To thank guests for their generosity, Denny’s provided a discount coupon in exchange for each donation made in-restaurant. More than 1,500 Denny’s restaurants nationwide participated, each showing their support with special in-store displays, signage, buttons and more.
In addition to in-store donations, Denny’s gave guests multiple ways to help this important cause. Every time a Denny’s fan shared a food picture with the hashtag #ShareMySlam on Twitter and Instagram, Denny’s donated $1 to No Kid Hungry. Denny’s also reached out to their online audience to make a donation at dennysnokidhungry.com.
