SPARTANBURG, S.C., Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- For the ninth consecutive year, Denny's has partnered with No Kid Hungry® to help end childhood hunger in America. Now through December 8, across all Denny's U.S. locations, guests that donate $3 in-store will receive coupons worth $15 to be used on subsequent visits and can choose to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar at the cash register.
"We are committed to feeding our communities and are incredibly proud of our continued partnership with No Kid Hungry," said John Dillon, chief brand officer for Denny's. "Our Denny's guests can make a significant impact on the lives of children across America with every dollar donated. As America's Diner, we will always lend a helping hand and are humbled to give back to the communities we serve."
Every dollar donated to No Kid Hungry can feed a child up to 10 healthy meals. In the past eight years, Denny's and its guests have contributed $7 million in donations, which is enough to provide up to 70 million meals to kids in need.
"Childhood hunger is a problem we cannot solve alone, and we rely on support from people and businesses," said Diana Hovey, senior vice president of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. "Every donation made, no matter the size, helps to achieve our goal of ending childhood hunger in this country and we are immensely grateful for Denny's continued partnership."
In addition to in-store donations, Denny's guests can donate online or when placing an order on Denny's On Demand. For more information on how to donate, please visit www.dennysnokidhungry.com.
