No Kid Hungry Initiative at Corner Bakery {Through September 30}


**Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

No Kid Hungry is a nationwide initiative that combats childhood hunger in America. No Kid Hungry targets hunger through access, education and awareness. Through their access initiatives, No Kid Hungry works with concerned citizens, government agencies and public organizations to help children in need have access to proper nutrition. No Kid Hungry also strives to educate low-income families on how to stretch their budgets to provide healthy meals. Additionally, the organization spreads awareness to the issue of childhood hunger and ways that we can all help.

I recently learned that Corner Bakery is raising money to help No Kid Hungry in its mission of connecting hungry children with nutritious meals. Patrons can buy a limited edition lemonade tumbler at Corner Bakery for $4.99. From now through September 30, $1.00 will go to benefit No Kid Hungry. When patrons return to Corner Bakery with their tumblers, they will be able to receive a refill of lemonade for $1.00 through September. Of the proceeds from the refills, 10% will benefit No Kid Hungry.

According to No Kind Hungry, nearly 1 in 5 children, 16 million nationally, struggle with hunger.
That means that many of us probably know children that are affected by hunger. This is an important cause and it is great that Corner Bakery is helping!

I know that a lot of us love to have a nice, cold lemonade in the summer. If you are a lemonade lover and are visiting Corner Bakery now through September 30, you can help through your purchase of a tumbler and any refills! With Corner Bakeries all over the Chicagoland area, I am sure that some of you are regular customers! For those not in the area, Corner Bakeries throughout the country are involved in the program as well!
