White Castle Contributes $25,000 to Share Our Strength(R) to Help End Childhood Hunger in America

CHICAGO, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of tough economic times, childhood hunger is on the rise. White Castle is making a $25,000 contribution to Share Our Strength(R), the leading national organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. According to Share Our Strength estimates, on any given day 1 out of 6 children in the United States are in danger of experiencing hunger, and in recent months, the numbers have been growing. As a result, White Castle will be presenting a check for $25,000 to Debbie Shore of Share Our Strength at the White Castle at 3205 S. Ashland in Chicago, IL 60608 on Monday, May 18 at 9:30 a.m.



Debbie Shore, Co-Founder and Associate Director of Share Our Strength expressed gratitude to White Castle, "During these difficult times, it is even more important than ever to work together to make a difference in the lives of children - hunger is an enemy that robs children of their chance for normal, healthy development. We are grateful to White Castle. This donation will help us end childhood hunger in America."

Jamie Richardson, White Castle Vice President commented, "We are grateful for organizations like Share Our Strength - they don't just identify the problem, then rest easy - they lead efforts that have an impact with individuals. At White Castle, we have been dedicated to 'feeding the hungry' since 1921 - whether that hunger is for physical nourishment, growth through learning, or connection to community. We are pleased to partner with Share Our Strength, and we see this contribution as an investment in all the great work they are doing."
