Voice of the Restaurant Industry
FohBoh is proud to announce its partnership with Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry™, a national restaurant event in cities across the United States. Funds raised through the program support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to end childhood hunger in America. To prepare for September’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, FohBoh will be supporting the Dine Out efforts in the community and other media/social media sites as well as incorporating the Dine Out in their annual conference, FSMU (Foodservice Social Media Universe) the only conference created and tailored to the restaurant and hospitality industries.
More than 16 million children in America—almost one of five—struggle with hunger. FohBoh is joining dozens other corporate partners, thousands of restaurants, and millions of consumers, all working with Share Our Strength to change that.
"As members of the restaurant industry we are in the business of feeding people," says Sarah Atkinson, Director, Social Media Marketing at FohBoh. "There is no excuse for the vast numbers of children that worry about where their next meal will come from. With the industry's support, and Share our Strength trailblazing the way, we can and will change that by 2015."
“We are asking everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers and other nonprofits—to help us end childhood hunger in this country,” said Bill Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “We continue to be amazed by the generosity and commitment of the restaurant industry, its suppliers and customers. Last year, they raised nearly $2.4 million through Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a record high. Our goal is to involve the entire industry and its customers in Dine Out For No Kid Hungry this September and help make No Kid Hungry America’s reality.”
