- Changing the Face of Hunger – with Denny’s Corporation
The numbers on childhood hunger are shocking – one out of five kids in America (that’s 16 million) live in households that struggle to put food on the table. Denny’s – America’s Diner—is on a mission to change that. Join Host Julie Moran for this BE THE CHANGE special segment along with John Miller, President and CEO of Denny’s Incorporated and Debbie Shore Co-Founder of Share our Strength, No Kid Hungry initiative to discuss their fund-raising initiative aimed at ending childhood hunger. Denny’s is in its fourth year partnering with Share our Strength, No Kid Hungry initiative, 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.
