Support the Great American Dine Out benefit September 19 -25

have some days where I can't think about cooking dinner for the family. At the same time, I am reluctant to spend lots of money on eating out. When I heard about the Great American Dine Out benefit, I know that our family will eat our this week to support a good cause.

Share Our Strength's Great American Dine is being held from September 19 through September 25, 2010.  When you eat at a participating restaurant a portion of your sale will be donated to No Kid Hungry. This program is designed to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.

The Great American Dine Out provides funding in the following ways:
  • Enroll more eligible kids in school breakfast, after-school snacks and meals, and their families in SNAP (food stamps).
  • Bring community gardens and farmers markets to low-income neighborhoods
  • Bring affordable, fresh fruits and vegetables to urban corner stores.
  • Teach at-risk families how to plan, shop for, and prepare healthy, low-cost meals at home.
  • Help local food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens meet the pressing demand for more nutritious food.
  • Increase awareness and understanding of childhood hunger and solutions to it.
