Let's do some eating math. If you follow the breakfast-lunch-dinner lineup, you should be eating three meals a day, right? Multiply that by the 30 days in September and you're eating 90 meals this month (to be fair, you've already eaten most of them). As we reported in this week's Tip Jar, Share Our Strength's Dine Out for No Kid Hungry event asks you to eat just a few of your remaining September meals at one of the 75 Orlando restaurants taking part in the monthlong event.
Restaurants participating in Dine Out for No Kid Hungry create their own fundraising system, be it a donation from the restaurant for the purchase of a specific meal, a donation line above the tip line on your receipt or whatever else the restaurant decides. Some of the restaurants participating in Orlando include Tijuana Flats, Marlow's Tavern, Brio Tuscan Grille, Mellow Mushroom, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Bravo! Dellagio and more.
According to Share Our Strength, just $1 can help connect a child with up to 10 meals. Make your dollars felt, Orlando.
