This September, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille are partnering with Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign by offering promotions and raising funds.
The No Kid Hungry campaign is aiming to end childhood hunger in the U.S. by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need. The money raised benefits the No Kid Hungry campaign and its work connecting kids at risk of hunger with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille promotions are:
Guests Donating to Make a Difference Promotion: Again in 2015, BRAVO! and BRIO will present its "Guests Donating to Make a Difference" promotion. From September 1–27, when BRAVO! and BRIO guests donate $5 or more to the No Kid Hungry campaign, they will receive $5 off their next visit of $15 or more, valid thru October 3.
What Family Meal Time Means to Me Coloring Contest: From September 1–20, all children aged 12 and younger dining at BRAVO! and BRIO will receive a coloring sheet with their Kid's Menu. Kids can use their imaginations to create artwork about "What Family Meal Time Means to Me," and turn it in at the restaurant or mail it to BBRG. Four winners will be selected and their drawings, along with the No Kid Hungry logo, will be published on the upcoming fourth quarter Kid's Menus. Also on the menus, BRAVO! and BRIO will promote that BBRG provided meals with the kids' support. Each winner will also receive a kids' pizza/pasta party for 12. Winners will be announced October 15. Entries must be submitted by September 20.

"At BBRG and every BRAVO! and BRIO restaurant across the nation, one of our greatest priorities is giving back to important causes," says Brian O'Malley, BBRG president and chief operating officer "We are pleased to once again partner with Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign, offering new promotions to support the cause, and to assist in the effort to end childhood hunger. In 2014, BBRG restaurants collected enough donations, from both online and in-store promotions, to help connect children in need across the country to 1.5 million meals. In 2015, our goal is to connect children in need across the county to more than 2 million meals."
"Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America," says Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. "I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day."
