MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(Sizzler is lending a hand. On September 1 the popular steak, seafood and salad restaurant launched a month-long fundraising program for the Share Our Strength "No Kid Hungry" campaign.)--With the 2012 drought driving up food prices for America’s families,
“With so many families continuing to face economic hardship, it was important to Sizzler to again join this cause and to expand our fundraising efforts to the entire month.”
Sizzler’s goal is to raise at least $25,000 for Share Our Strength, which is working with restaurants nationwide on its annual Dine Out for No Kid Hungry week, September 16-22. This is Sizzler’s second year to participate in the campaign.
Guests at participating Sizzler restaurants will have the opportunity to make a $1 donation to the organization. In return, they will receive a coupon good for a $1 discount on the purchase of any Sizzler entrée. The coupon can be used anytime in October. Some restaurants also are donating 10 percent of every kid’s meal sold throughout September to Share Our Strength.
“Sizzler has always been a family gathering place,” said Kerry Kramp, president and CEO of Sizzler USA. “With so many families continuing to face economic hardship, it was important to Sizzler to again join this cause and to expand our fundraising efforts to the entire month.”
According to Share our Strength, more than 16 million American children – that’s one of every five kids –are not getting the nutrition they need and will face hunger at some point in the year.
