Across America, 13 million kids live with hunger, and 22 million rely on free or reduced-priced school lunches. The Stage community of stores is partnering with No Kid Hungry to ensure children have access to the nutrition they need through programs in their schools and communities such as school breakfast and summer meals.
This July, in time for back-to-school season, Stage’s Community Counts program is giving guests the opportunity to support No Kid Hungry through purchasing food-themed lunch totes, water bottles and drawstring packs that feature unique characters and fun sayings kids will love and parents will approve.
Stage Stores will donate 50% of the retail sales of each item sold to No Kid Hungry, which will fund efforts to provide meals to children in need. Stage also will donate a dollar for each social media post mentioning #fuelkidsfutures and invites guests to share favorite meals that fuel their day or their child’s day. With as little as $5, No Kid Hungry can provide up to 50 meals for a child.
“As a company we continually strive to be the heart of every hometown by actively seeking opportunities to engage within and improve the communities we serve,” said Michael Glazer, President and CEO of Stage Stores, Inc. “Our partnership with No Kid Hungry will bring awareness to the critical issue of child hunger within our communities, and through funds raised, will help ensure no kid goes hungry.”
