MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--For the third year, Sizzler (Twitter @Sizzler_USA and www.facebook.com/sizzler) is participating in Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign to end childhood hunger in America. Sizzler's goal is to raise $25,000 via guest donations and corporate contributions. The offer runs through September 30, 2013.
“We are painfully aware that too many families have kids that are going hungry, which is why it is so important that we support the restaurant industry's efforts to feed those in need.”
Depending upon restaurant, guests who make a $1 donation at participating locations will receive $1 off an entrée in October; if they contribute $3, they will receive a free add-on Endless Salad Bar in October. Some locations will donate 10 percent of kids' meals sales and/or 10 percent of gift card sales to help make sure every child in the U.S. gets the food they need. As promotions vary by restaurant, ask your cashier for details.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one-out-of-five children struggle with hunger. Hunger affects children's ability to perform in school and can even impact their future earning potential.
"Since its inception more than 50 years ago, Sizzler has always focused on serving American families,” said Kerry Kramp, president and CEO. "We are painfully aware that too many families have kids that are going hungry, which is why it is so important that we support the restaurant industry's efforts to feed those in need."
