Hash House A Go Go is doing its part to ensure no child in America grows up hungry. The farm-fresh restaurant recently announced it is joining Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out? presented by American Express as a participating restaurant. This new annual event is designed to rally the nation’s entire restaurant industry and encourage millions of consumers to dine out to end childhood hunger in America.
“One in every six children in America suffers from uncertain access to the healthy, nutritious foods they need to avoid the lifelong and devastating consequences of hunger,” said Billy Shore, founder of Share Our Strength. “We are in striking distance of ending childhood hunger by institutionalizing what we know has worked, and by joining forces together we can make this vision a reality.”
When Hash House Owner Jim Rees learned of the organization, he immediately forged a relationship.
“Childhood hunger is a very real problem in America,” said Rees. “To be able to help this organization is a wonderful thing and the restaurant is proud to donate what we can to benefit this fine cause.”
Restaurants can participate in the Great American Dine Out in a variety of ways including donating a percentage of sales during the week, promoting a new menu item, collecting donations from guests and/or employees and more. Hash House A Go Go is donating a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds to the event.
Thousands of restaurants are already participating in the Great American Dine Out, and more are joining daily. The Great American Dine Out is endorsed by many of the country’s top chefs including Chefs Thomas Keller, Mary Sue Milliken and Tom Collichio and industry executives Danny Meyer, Phil Friedman, Sally Smith and Wally Doolin. Food Network Star and host of the hit TV series Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri, has stepped up to serve as the national spokesperson.
The Great American Dine Out is presented by American Express. Founding national sponsors are SYSCO Corporation, San Pellegrino, Acqua Panna, and Ecolab. Founding national partners are Food Network, etools, National Restaurant Association, Nation’s Restaurant News and OpenTable. Founding promotional partners are Fishbowl Marketing, The People Report and the Elliot Group.
