SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 30, 2018--QDOBA Mexican Eats ® joins forces with No Kid Hungry on its mission to end childhood hunger. From Sept. 1-30, QDOBA guests are encouraged to donate $2 to No Kid Hungry at participating QDOBA restaurants. Any patron that donates at least $2 will receive a coupon (valid until Oct. 6) for a free order of chips and queso with the purchase of an entrée on a later visit.

“With more than 13 million children living with hunger in the U.S., we feel compelled to do something,” said Jill Adams, vice president of marketing at QDOBA. “We started working with the No Kid Hungry campaign in 2017 and we couldn’t be more proud to throw in our hat to help with this cause. We set an ambitious goal and are determined to raise $200,000, which would help provide two million meals to children.”

To kick off its promotion, No Kid Hungry and QDOBA will be hosting an event on Sept. 5 from 5-7 p.m. at its restaurant located at: 12027 W. Alameda Pkwy., Lakewood, CO. During the two-hour window, 20 percent of non-catering sales generated at this location will be donated to No Kid Hungry, and kids (aged 12 and under) can eat free from the kids menu. Plus, attendees can enjoy free hand-smashed guacamole, a live mariachi band and fun branded swag.

“No child deserves to go hungry in this great country of ours, yet 1 in 6 children live with hunger,” said Diana Hovey, senior vice president at Share Our Strength, the organization behind No Kid Hungry. “We’re so thankful to have the support of QDOBA’s team members and guests. With just the simple act of dining out, we can ensure kids have the food they need to succeed.”

Guests are encouraged to visit their local QDOBA restaurant to help fight childhood hunger during the month of September. To find the nearest QDOBA, visit QDOBA.com/locations or on the QDOBA app available for download on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
