TGI Fridays Partners with "No Kid Hungry" for Hunger Awareness Month in September

TGI Fridays Press Release

Brand rewards guests with coupons and discounts in exchange for donations to end childhood hunger

TGI Fridays™, the restaurant brand known for bringing people together in pursuit of good times and great food, is extending its mission to bring a smile to every plate by pairing up with No Kid Hungry for Hunger Awareness Month this September. No Kid Hungry is a campaign to end childhood hunger in the U.S., and TGI Fridays is joining America's other top restaurants in helping raise funds for the cause.

During the month of September, all guests of participating TGI Fridays restaurants in the U.S. will have the chance to make a donation to No Kid Hungry in exchange for free menu items and special discounts on a future visit in October.

- $2 donations receive a coupon for a free TGI Fridays appetizer (maximum $10 value) with the purchase of any entree.
- $5 donations receive 20% off an entire meal (pre-tax, does not include purchase of alcoholic beverages).
- $10 donations will unlock a Buy-One-Get-One-Free entrée to accompany orders of at least one entrée and two beverages.
- Online ordering will feature a special URL link leading guests directly to the No Kid Hungry donation page.
*Please see limitations and exclusions for full terms and conditions.

All donations will go to No Kid Hungry, which connects kids in need to effective food programs such as school breakfasts, summer meals, and afterschool meals.

"One in six children in America lives with hunger," said Ray Blanchette, TGI Fridays chief executive officer. "Each $1 donation can provide up to 10 nutritious meals, which means every donation made at Fridays restaurants can make a real difference. Bringing people together for such a worthwhile cause is what the spirit of TGI Fridays is all about. Together, we can make a positive impact in our communities right where it is needed most."

"We are incredibly grateful for the support from TGI Fridays," said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. "With the help of committed partners like them, No Kid Hungry is helping children all over the country get the nutritious food they need to succeed."
