Changing the Face of Hunger
September 10, 2015
No child should grow up hungry in America.
A recent survey found that 1 out of five kids in America are living in households that struggle to put food on the table. Denny’s – America’s Diner—is on a mission to change that. John Miller, President and CEO of Denny’s Inc joins us to discuss a great fund-raising initiative aimed at ending childhood hunger. Denny’s is in its fourth year, partnering with Share our Strength’s: No Kid Hungry initiative. That’s a nationwide movement, aimed at ending childhood hunger, by connecting kids with healthy foods, where they live, work and play. With almost 1,600 restaurants nationwide and a diner in every state, Denny’s uniquely positioned to help make sure every child in the U.S. has access to the most important meal of the day. Studies show that kids who eat school breakfast are more apt to attend class, perform better in tests and are 20-percent more likely to graduate high school. Tune-in, to learn more about this important initiative, and how you can help Denny’s with its mission. You don’t want to miss this!
