American Express and Share Our Strength announced today “Dine for a Cause,” an initiative to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to end childhood hunger in America. Now through January 31, 2014, American Express Card Members can do their part to help ensure that all children have the healthy food they need, every day. Card Members simply need to register any eligible American Express® Card at www.amexnetwork.com/dineforacause and then each time they use their registered Card at an American Express Card accepting restaurant, American Express will donate $1 each time they dine, up to $1 million, to No Kid Hungry.

For every $1 donated, No Kid Hungry can help provide up to 10 healthy meals to children in need. Through “Dine for a Cause,” American Express will have the potential to give children access to up to 10 million meals.*

“American Express is empowering its Card Members to take action and encouraging our restaurant merchants to spread the word about this initiative,” said Ramón Martín, president of Merchant Services Americas for American Express. “Together, if we ‘Dine for a Cause,’ we can provide millions of children with a nutritious meal this holiday season and beyond.”

“We are passionate about ending childhood hunger in America and we’re proud to support American Express and Share Our Strength in ‘Dine for a Cause,’” said Danny Meyer, New York City Restaurateur and CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group and Board Member of Share Our Strength.

“We are thrilled to partner with American Express in welcoming Card Members to support No Kid Hungry,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. “One in five children in America struggles with hunger, but American Express Card Members can help us get one step closer to making No Kid Hungry a reality.”

Since 1984, Share Our Strength has been dedicated to ending childhood hunger by connecting kids in need with nutritious meals and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals at home. Share Our Strength also raises awareness around the crisis of childhood hunger and provides innovative hunger solutions in communities nationwide.

About SHARE OUR STRENGTH’S NO KID HUNGRY CAMPAIGN

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals through Cooking Matters. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, public officials, nonprofits, business leaders and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. Join us at NoKidHungry.org.

*This amount was determined on the basis that $1 can help connect a child with up to 10 nutritious meals, which is, in turn, based on the individual experiences of Share Our Strength’s grant recipients. It is provided to illustrate how community investments can be used to help end childhood hunger. Each contribution made to Share Our Strength represents a contribution to its original mission. Donations will be used to reach the highest number of children facing hunger in America. Share Our Strength is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
