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."
