Making sure that children don’t go hungry is a BIG deal to me. My husband’s family was homeless for a brief period of time. And they used food banks to eat, making me want to keep food banks as full as I can so I love to support brands that support the No Kid Hungry campaign.
A wholesome breakfast can jumpstart any day, as studies have known that kids who eat school breakfast are more apt to attend class, perform better on standardized tests and, as a result, are 20 percent more likely to graduate high school. In an effort to ensure that every child in the U.S. starts his or her day off right with nutritious, attainable meals, Denny’s (#DennysNKH) is teaming up with and raising funds for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, a national movement aimed at ending childhood hunger by connecting kids with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
From Aug. 15 through Sept. 30, nearly 1,600 Denny’s nationwide will sell coupons in support of No Kid
Hungry’s efforts to help the more than 16 million American children struggling with hunger. For a $3
donation, guests will receive $9 worth of coupons redeemable at participating Denny’s restaurants.
Every dollar donated helps feed a child up to 10 healthy meals.
In addition, guests are invited to contribute to the cause via two alternative means this year, including
making a monetary donation of their choice at dennys.com/nokidhungry; all who donate online will be
e-mailed a coupon for $5 off their next $20 meal at Denny’s. Customers can also pledge their support by
purchasing one of three exclusive No Kid Hungry campaign t-shirts – designed by Denny’s team
members in Texas, Nevada and Kentucky – for $10 each. T-shirts are produced by Booster, available at
dennys.com/nokidhungry and a portion of all sales goes directly to No Kid Hungry.

“Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry effort is by far one of our nation’s most important, most influential
and impactful campaigns aimed at ending childhood hunger in this country to-date, and Denny’s is
proud to be a partner in the movement for the fourth year in a row,” said Denny’s Chief Executive
Officer John Miller. “With one in five children struggling with hunger in the U.S., Denny’s remains
committed to No Kid Hungry and in the organization’s efforts to increase school breakfast participation
nationwide, thereby bettering our kids’ academic, health and economic futures.”
Since 2011, Denny’s has donated more than $1.4 million to the No Kid Hungry campaign. In order to
increase its impact this year, Denny’s is beginning its fundraising efforts, which includes online t-shirt
and in-unit coupon sales, a full two weeks ahead of most partners.
“We are grateful for Denny’s continued commitment,” said Billy Shore, co-founder of Share Our
Strength. “It matches the commitment of our nation’s teachers who see their students regularly coming
to school hungry and who know that academic success can be measured in meals—especially breakfast
in the school day. By dining out at your local Denny’s, pledging your support online or even just buying a
t-shirt, you’re helping every child get that most important meal of the day and making No Kid Hungry a
