400

More than 16 million American children face hunger. This September, The Ancient Olive is joining thousands of restaurants and gourmet food establishments nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign by raising funds in their restaurants. “During the week of September 15-21 at The Ancient Olive, $1 from each bottle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar sold (excludes the 60-mL bottle) will be donated to the No Kid Hungry® campaign.” For more information on The Ancient Olive and this September event, visit TheAncientOlive.com or NoKidHungry.org. “We, at The Ancient Olive, know that good nutrition is the base from which a child grows,” said Jefrey Schrader, co-owner of The Ancient Olive. “Therefore, we are thrilled to be supporting the No Kid Hungry campaign — and helping to make sure that no child goes without the basic necessities in life.” In 2012, restaurants raised $5.9 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign—funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S.; create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need; support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals; and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources. “Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits— has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength®. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.” About The Ancient Olive The Ancient Olive – an extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar tasting room – located on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach brings ultra premium extra virgin olive oils from around the globe & balsamic vinegars from Modena, Italy.
