NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citi today announced the launch of a new fundraising campaign – Dine & Do Good – as part of its multi-year relationship with No Kid Hungry® to fight childhood hunger in America. Through this campaign, which builds on the success of a similar campaign in 2015, Citi hopes to donate $1 million to No Kid Hungry this year — enough to provide 10 million healthy meals to children in need.
Until December 1, 2016 or when Citi reaches its goal, Citi will make a donation when a credit cardmember dines out with their enrolled Citi credit card. To participate in this campaign to help end childhood hunger, Citi cardmembers should:
- Enroll their Citi credit card at citi.com/dineforkids
- Dine out now through December 1, 2016. Each time a Citi cardmember spends at least $5 dining out using the enrolled card, Citi will donate $1 up to a total of $1 million
- Spread the word with family and friends to help Citi reach its $1 million goal
Today, one in five children in the U.S. struggles with hunger. Lack of nutrition is debilitating for young children, making it very difficult to focus on schoolwork and impacting their emotional and social development.
“At Citi, we care deeply about helping to end childhood hunger and through this campaign, we are proud to be helping kids gain access to healthy food,” said Jud Linville, CEO, Citi Global Cards and Consumer Services. “Simply by dining out, Citi cardmembers can support this effort with us and have a transformative impact on this country’s youth.”
In addition, the New York Mets will be teaming up with Citi to support No Kid Hungry throughout the baseball season through the Citi Community Home Runs program. For every home run the Mets hit at Citi Field this season, Citi will donate $2,000 to No Kid Hungry, which is enough to provide 20,000 meals to kids in need.
Through Citi’s multi-year relationship with No Kid Hungry, cardmembers can further support the fight against childhood hunger by attending the nonprofit’s events including Taste of the Nation and No Kid Hungry Dinners. Taste of the Nation engages more than 3,000 chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs in nearly 40 cities to raise funds to support work to end childhood hunger in America. No Kid Hungry Dinners are intimate seated dinners featuring renowned chefs and restaurants from across the country and one-of-a-kind auctions.
