BEAVER CREEK — More than 16 million American children face hunger. This September, Grouse Mountain Grill is joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign by raising funds. At Grouse Mountain Grill on Sept. 23, 24, 25 and 26, 75 percent of a $75 per person chef’s four-course menu with wine pairings will be donated to the No Kid Hungry campaign. Advance reservations will be required and seating is limited to 20 guests per night. Help raise $4,500 for this important cause.
“By participating in the No Kid Hungry campaign we feel part of a collective energy that will, hopefully, make a difference in children’s lives,” said Nancy Dowell, of Grouse Mountain Grill. “Access to food and proper nutrition for our nation’s children is crucial.”
In 2012, restaurants raised $5.9 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign — funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S.; create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need; support nutrition programs such as School Breakfast and Summer Meals; and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
“Everyone — private citizens, businesses, policymakers and nonprofits — has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit nokidhungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
