ATLANTA, 2016-Sep-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, plans to help combat childhood hunger in the U.S. by raising funds and awareness during the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry® program throughout the month of September. One in five children struggles with hunger in our country.
Paradies Lagardère venues and restaurants will donate 25 cents for every cup of coffee sold and will also continue its year-round effort to support No Kid Hungry® by donating 25 percent of every kid’s meal sold and served in its restaurants.
“Paradies Lagardère continues to work to combat the troubling issue of childhood hunger through its steadfast commitment to No Kid Hungry®,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère. “We have a goal to double the funds raised last year.”
Funds raised support No Kid Hungry’s work to connect vulnerable children to effective nutrition programs such as School Breakfast and Summer Meals, create public-private partnerships that work together to identify and break down barriers to giving children access to meals, and teach low-income families how to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy, affordable meals.
