September is the time for the No Kid Hungry fundraising campaign by Share Our Strength. It is my pleasure to share this info and help support Share Our Strength.
Want to see the face of hunger in America? Just look in the mirror. Who knows why causes touch our hearts? I have no idea why, but hunger in America touches mine. So, I am pleased to remind everyone that September is the month to go out to eat, grab some bargains and help feed America’s kids.
During September, restaurants throughout the US will offer discounts and donations from purchases. As I live in the San Francisco Bay area, I’ve listed some of the discounts below. To find the discounts in your area, click on this link to visit the No Kid Hungry site. Enter your zip code to find offers and locations. I found well over 100 locations near me from Boudin’s to Denny’s. You can also narrow your search for dine in eateries such as The Old Spaghetti Factory and Fogo de Chao.
If you decide to purchase one of the coupon books, ask if you can use the coupons immediately. I purchased the coupon book at Boudin SF and immediately used one of the coupons for a discount for that evening’s meal. (Which I stacked with my Boudin SF Loyalty program’s free load of Sourdough Bread!)
If you are not feeling hungry, you can also make a donation directly to the cause.
