IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Baja Fresh, the fast-casual fresh Mexican chain, announced today that it has partnered with No Kid Hungry for a second year to support its work to end childhood hunger in America.
One in five children in this country struggles with hunger. Hunger not only impacts a child’s health but also results in poorer academic performance and can ultimately have a lifelong effect on future development and success. No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget.
From August 17th to October 18th, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, the quick-casual fresh Mexican chain, is donating 20 percent of all proceeds from the sale of its new Baja Fresh No Kid Hungry gift cards to No Kid Hungry®, while Givex is contributing the technology for the gift card program. In addition to our gift card promotion, we are also urging our fans to donate directly to No Kid Hungry. Just $1 can help feed a child in need up to 10 healthy meals*, so every contribution can make a big difference. To learn more about how you can help click here.

Our partnership with Givex allows for a seamless process for our operators to participate in supporting Share our Strength.”
*This amount is based on the individual experiences of grant recipients. Contributions will be used to reach the highest number of children facing hunger in America. Share Our Strength is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
