According to Share Our Strength there are almost 49 million Americans who currently lack the means in which to feed themselves regularly. Living within those homes that currently struggle are over 16 million kids, who also deal with hunger. The founders of Share Our Strength Billy and Debbie Shore were originally inspired by the Ethiopian famine to try and end global hunger and poverty. Their first event in 1988 netted nearly $250,000 in a single day when 25 restaurants held wine and food tastings.

How they make it work

Share our Strength and their No Kid Hungry Campaign seeks to end child hunger in America by partnering with government officials, business leaders, private citizens and those who are actively working in their communities on solutions to stymie the problem.Within the No Kid Hungry campaign is the Cooking Matters program which was founded in 1993. Its purpose is to teach low-income families how to extend their restricted food budget so that their kids and themselves can enjoy healthier meals prepared at home.

Participants are taught how to read and understand food nutrition labels when they shop so that they are able to make better choices.

Join the fight

Through their Dine Out For No Kid Hungry initiative which was founded in 2008, Share Our Strength has brought together thousands of restaurants and millions of patrons to help in the fight against childhood hunger. This year once again IHOP is a part of the fight and will be offering short stack pancakes on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, for just $1.

That gives its patrons twelve hours to help make a difference in the life a child. Participating IHOPs all throughout the United States will donate 100 percent of their proceeds to the No Kid Hungry campaign. Theirgoal is to serve one million of their Buttermilk Pancake in one day. Some of the other participating brands are Ruby Tuesday, Arby's, Dairy Queen, and Smithfield, which will also be offering their consumers ways to donate to the cause.
