Hunger is a major threat to many of our nation’s children, with one in six of them being affected by it. No Kid Hungry is an organization that works to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food and families learn to shop and cook on limited budgets, and a recent partnership will help many families with this.

The organization is teaming up with Einstein Bros. Bagels, a national bagel chain, to raise money to fund 2.5 million nutritious meals. From Wednesday, April 11 to Tuesday, May 1, any guest who donates $2 to No Kid Hungry at participating Einstein Bros. Bagels and Coffee & Bagel locations will receive a coupon set with three unique offers worth over $11 – a free bagel and shmear with purchase, a buy-one-get-one egg sandwich deal, and $3 off a Baker's Dozen Box.

“Thanks to the overwhelming support from our loyal guests who share our mission to brighten the outlook of those in need, we surpassed our goal of donating one million meals in just four days last year,” says Kerry Coyne, Einstein Bros. Bagels SVP of Marketing, Product, and Innovation. “We are eager to make an even bigger impact this year by providing at least 2.5 million healthy meals for hungry kids over the course of our campaign.”

It doesn’t take much to make an impact. According to No Kid Hungry, a single $2 donation can provide 20 meals to children in need.

“We are so grateful for amazing partners like Einstein Bros. Bagels, who are helping make no kid hungry a reality,” says Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President at No Kid Hungry. “We were blown away by the success of the promotion last year and look forward to continuing our partnership for another year.”
