Funds raised at OTB from September 2-9 Support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign

DALLAS, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In America, 1 out of 5 children struggle with hunger. On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina® is supporting Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign by raising funds at its restaurants.

From September 2-9, On The Border guests will have the option to add a donation to their check. Also, there will be information placed on every table to help educate guests about the cause.

"On The Border is extremely proud to participate in such a positive campaign," said Ward Whitworth, President of On The Border. "I am certain our guests will be more than willing to contribute to this great cause."

In 2013, nearly 9,000 restaurants raised $7.5 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S., create public and private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need, support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.

"Everyone-private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits-has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America," said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength®. "We welcome On The Border to the campaign and encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day."
