The Indigo Road Restaurant Group Donates 10% of Proceeds From a Dish at Each of its Charleston Restaurants to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign for the Month of September

CHARLESTON, SC – August 26, 2014 –Starting on September 1, The Indigo Road Restaurant Group will donate 10% of proceeds from select dishes and drinks at each of the restaurant group’s five establishments to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign. The non-profit organization helps connect kids in need to effective nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable meals. In American, 1 in 5 children struggle with hunger.

 “Dine Out For No Kid Hungry allows us to support families in need and raise awareness among our patrons,” stated Executive Chef Jeremiah Bacon of The Macintosh and Oak Steakhouse. “We know that youth hunger is so much bigger than any one person or one restaurant, but by coming together we can make a greater impact for the kids.”  In 2013, nearly 9,000 restaurants raised $7.5 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign.

 The public can participate in the effort by dinning at the restaurants and ordering the special dishes or drinks throughout the month of September. All of Indigo Road’s restaurants are participating, including:

  • Oak Steakhouse: Steak Tartar
  • The Macintosh: House-made Ricotta Gnudi
