Share our Strength: Help End Childhood Hunger in America

Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in America struggles with hunger? September is the month dedicated to ending this needless affliction.

Change comes about when communities pull together to make a significant difference. Heirloom Restaurant Group is dedicated to helping solve this problem and with your help we can raise awareness and the resources necessary to make a change. In the words of Margaret Mead:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Join us any day from September 23rd through September 28th to enjoy a special menu item at Heirloom Restaurants: Pizzeria Seven Twelve and Communal. All proceeds from these menu items will go to No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending hunger. Learn more about the Share our Strength campaign here. 

One of our favorite parts of this campaign is that the proceeds not only help alleviate childhood hunger but also help assist parents in providing nutritious, affordable and home-cooked meals for their family. It’s not just about food but real food that will sustain our environment and raise a healthy generation. Join us in this worthy cause to stand up for American children in need.
