IHOP® restaurants partner with No Kid Hungry for 'Summer of Smiles'

GLENDALE, CA -

This is a news release from IHOP

Continuing their “Summer of Smiles” celebration, IHOP® restaurants announced today that it has joined forces with No Kid Hungry to bring an end to childhood hunger. IHOP and No Kid Hungry share the philosophy that starting the day with breakfast, and a smile, is extremely important, and have targeted a goal of providing 2.5 million meals this year.

No Kid Hungry’s mission is to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food. IHOP is joining that effort by offering guests the opportunity to donate directly to No Kid Hungry, August 24 through September 20.  On August 25, participating IHOP restaurants will offer short stacks of their famous buttermilk pancakes for only $1 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Dubbed “Share a Smile” Day, 50 cents from each $1 short stack sale will benefit No Kid Hungry.

“One in five American children struggle with hunger, which can have serious long-term effects on their development and success,” said Darren Rebelez, President of International House of Pancakes, LLC. “We are so proud to partner with No Kid Hungry to bring smiles to children’s faces as we fight to end childhood hunger.”

IHOP’s “Summer of Smiles” celebration is devoted to celebrating individuals and organizations that have dedicated themselves to making the communities they serve better.  No Kid Hungry’s initiatives to feed children will benefit not only from the $1 short stack program on August 25, but also a month-long online and social media campaign, as well as a donation line on all IHOP receipts.

The IHOP-No Kid Hungry promotion will continue into September, helping kick off No Kid Hungry Month and the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry program where brands nationwide help raise funds to end childhood hunger. 

“The simple act of feeding kids a healthy breakfast can have a dramatic impact on their academic, health and economic futures,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share our Strength, the national nonprofit that runs the No Kid Hungry campaign. “A leader in breakfast, IHOP is an ideal partner to help us raise awareness and end childhood hunger, and by Sharing a Smile IHOP guests and the brand will kick off Dine Out for No Kid Hungry in a rewarding and exciting way.”

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.

    For a second consecutive football season, West Marion High School and Presbyterian Christian School will square off in the season-opening game for each school. But neither team knows quite what to expect from not only the team across the field but the one arrayed along its own sideline. PCS welcomes West Marion at 7 p.m. Thursday, one of two area prep games set a day before a near full, inaugural slate of high school games. Stringer High School will visit Bay Springs High Schoo...More >>
