SEP 20-26: DINE OUT in LA and Help End Childhood Hunger

Share our Strength® - No Kid Hungry
36.2 million Americans—including 12.4 million children—face hunger, and it's no surprise that last week's release of census data on poverty shows that number on the rise.

To respond to the growing need, Share Our Strength is hosting The Great American Dine Out, a weeklong opportunity to dine out at your favorite restaurants and help raise money to fight childhood hunger. By dining out at participating restaurants September 20-26, you can help raise funds to end chi ldhood hunger in America.

Families have cut back on eating out this year, but I hope you'll agree that the Great American Dine Out offers an excuse to take a night off and treat yourself to a great meal—one that will help fight childhood hunger.

Some of your favorite restaurants are participating in the Great American Dine Out next week. So skip the dirty dishes, and find a participating restaurant near you.

Make plans now to dine out next week and help us make this year's Dine Out better than the last. In just one week last year, you helped raise enough money to provide more than 4.5 million meals and teach nearly 13,000 nutrition classes to low-income families.

Last week you helped us to spread awareness by telling a friend about our work. This week, we hope you'll call those friends and invite them to join you for the Great American Dine Out.
