Restaurant unveils plan to donate $1 to No Kid Hungry for every social post shared.
ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2020 / One of the very first lessons we learn is to share. And that's all Church's Chicken® is asking fans to do to help hungry kids get some food.
From now until October 16th, 2020, Church's® will donate to No Kid Hungry $1, up to $10,000, every time a fan shares their Instagram or Facebook post about the charity using #ChurchsCares. That can add up to a lot of gravy. And right now, kids need it. Before the pandemic, one in seven kids in the United States lived with hunger. According to recent estimates, today that number has grown to as many as one in four.
"This is a national emergency and something has to be done," said Georgia Margeson, Church's Senior Director Creative Services. "As a brand within the food industry, we didn't just want to step up and help out. We needed to." Over the past decade, much has been done to solve childhood hunger in the U.S., but COVID-19 set back ten years of progress. During the past months, many families are or were very close to hunger from missing work or school meal programs.
Church's cannot stress enough the importance of adequate nutrition, especially while children are dealing with the effect of the pandemic, hurricanes, wildfire and other everyday issues. "When it comes to kids being hungry, this is critical," commented Margeson.
Church's hopes this will encourage more people to donate to No Kid Hungry, but right now all they're asking is for people to share the post. It's that simple.
