Even before the spread of the coronavirus, millions of children in the United States already lived in homes where there wasn’t enough food. Now that reality is even more dire with schools closing and parents being laid off. That’s why Checkers & Rally’s is stepping in and teaming up with No Kid Hungry to help.
As RestaurantNews.com reports, the national food chain with hundreds of locations in more than 25 different states is partnering with one of the world’s largest non-profit campaigns to end hunger. Checkers & Rally’s is donating $100,000 which is enough to provide kids with up to one million meals.
Checkers & Rally CEO Frances Allen says they're excited about the partnership.
“Checkers & Rally’s is deeply committed to the nearly 900 communities we serve, and by partnering with No Kid Hungry, we are able to make a big impact toward connecting kids with nutritious meals so that no child goes hungry,” Allen said. “We’re proud to be partnering with a campaign that does so much good for so many children and families in need.”
