BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Noodles & Company (NASDAQ: NDLS), known for serving noodle and zoodle dishes from around the world, today announced it will once again team up with No Kid Hungry to help address childhood hunger in America. Guests can choose to add a $2 donation to their order from August 28 through September 24, which will provide up to 20 meals for kids in need. Noodles will also match every $2 donation made to the campaign on August 28 to kick off the fundraiser.
Not only can guests contribute to the meaningful cause, but guests who donate $2 to No Kid Hungry at Noodles will receive a free Shareable item to enjoy with family and friends on their next visit.
"No Kid Hungry supports a cause that is close to our hearts and, with the help of our guests, Noodles & Company has donated nearly $1.7 million dollars since we started our partnership in 2016, which is enough to provide up to 17 million meals*," said Dave Boennighausen, chief executive officer of Noodles & Company. "We are committed to serving great food and nourishing our communities, and we're dedicated to improving the lives of kids who need it most."
Since the start of the No Kid Hungry campaign in 2010, one-third fewer children are facing hunger. No Kid Hungry and its partners have also connected hungry kids with more than 1 billion meals since 2010.
"We're proud and thankful to partner with Noodles & Company for the fourth consecutive year and value the Company's continued support of our mission that no child should ever go hungry," said Diana Hovey, senior vice president at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign.
