Qdoba Mexican Grill is joining thousands of restaurants nationwide this September to support Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry campaign. Through Sept. 30, Qdoba guests who donate $1 or more at any Chicagoland Qdoba restaurant, including the Elmhurst location at St. Charles and Route 83, will receive a scratch-off coupon card good for one Qdoba treat—ranging from a free drink to free entrée—to use during their next Qdoba visit. All donations will go directly to Dine Out For No Kid Hungry.
More than 16 million American children face hunger. Now in its fifth year, Dine Out For No Kid Hungry has raised more than $4 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign, which connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
“Childhood hunger is an issue that affects more U.S. families and children than most people realize,” said Gary Beisler, CEO of Qdoba Mexican Grill. “In fact, one out of every five kids in America struggles with hunger. We’re passionate about raising awareness and support for such a crucial issue and we know our guests share that passion too.”
Qdoba also will host a preview party at its newest restaurant location in Oakbrook Terrace, at 17W639 Roosevelt Road, on Saturday, Sept. 22 benefitting Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. Guests can get a sneak peak of the new Qdoba location (opening Sept. 24) and for a recommended $5 donation receive an entrée and regular soft drink with all donations collected going directly to Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. Hours for the event are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.
Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry is nationally sponsored by Sysco, American Express, Ecolab, ONEHOPE Wine, SCA, Food Network, Clear Channel and the National Restaurant Association. Visit DineOutForNoKidHungry.org.
