Romano’s Macaroni Grill kicks off ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign


Romano’s Macaroni Grill has announced its campaign to ignite the nationwide community to help end childhood hunger in America.

Kicking off Sept. 1, the company will partner with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to help connect kids to 1 Million Meals through a platform that includes in-restaurant promotions, social sharing activations and a blogger call-to-action.

“One in five children in America struggle with hunger — that’s a staggering number,” said Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chief Marketing Officer, Brandon Coleman III. “No Kid Hungry has dedicated years to creating a program to help end the crisis, and we are thrilled to be a partner. Macaroni Grill’s campaign to help connect children in need with 1 Million Meals will live both online and in our restaurants, rallying a nationwide community to help those who are struggling.”

GIVE: Throughout the entire month of September, Macaroni Grill diners can donate $2 to No Kid Hungry and receive $5 off their next visit. Each donation can help connect a child in need to up to 20 meals.

SHARE: Every time a fan shares a photo from the Mac Grill Give Facebook Gallery, Macaroni Grill will donate $1 to help connect a kid to 10 meals.

TAG: Fans are invited to tag a Tweet or Instagram photo of their Macaroni Grill experience with #macgrillgive. For every tag, Macaroni Grill will donate $1 to help connect a kid to 10 meals.

Macaroni Grill is also enlisting the food and mom blogger community to help end childhood hunger with a single post. By simply tagging #macgrillgive to a recipe, message or photo of their favorite Italian meal on their blog, Macaroni Grill will donate $50 to connect a child to up to 500 meals.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill’s Share and Tag initiative is valid up to 150,000 shares, while the in-restaurant donation initiative is unlimited.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill is an Italian restaurant serving hand-crafted pastas and crave-able entrees in more than 200 locations world-wide. The Big Island location is at Queens’ Marketplace shopping center in Waikoloa Beach Resort.

The restaurant chain blends 20 years of tradition, such as the honor system house wine, with progressive culinary inspiration from all regions of Italy and the U.S.

Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry is a national fundraising event that brings together thousands of restaurants and millions of consumers to help make sure no child in America grows up hungry.

Every September, participating restaurants raise funds in a variety of ways to support the No Kid Hungry campaign, Share Our Strength’s national movement to end childhood hunger in America.
