Genghis Grill, bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill finish fundraiser that will help provide almost 500,000 meals to hungry children
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Childhood food insecurity is highest in the summer when many children go without access to the meals they receive at school, so Mongolian Concepts – Genghis Grill, bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill – partnered with No Kid Hungry to battle childhood hunger in America, specifically targeting the rise of hunger during summer break.
The three restaurant concepts dedicated May and June to fundraising for No Kid Hungry and raised nearly $50,000, which provides almost 500,000 meals to hungry children.
“We believe it is unacceptable that one in six children face hunger in America,” said Doug Willmarth, chief marketing officer at Mongolian Concepts. “We are thankful for our mazing customers and team members that came together to partner with No Kid Hungry in the fight to end childhood hunger.”
During the fundraiser, guests contributed by donating $3 or more to purchase a No Kid Hungry pin-up. The pin-ups, with guest names written on them, were placed on restaurant walls as a sign of support and to help raise awareness.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support from Mongolian Concepts,” said Diana Hovey, senior vice president at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “No Kid Hungry is able to help children all over the country get the food they need to succeed thanks to committed partners like Genghis Grill, bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill.”
