The Great American Dine-Out

Join American Express in supporting Share Our Strength’s 2010 Great American Dine Out®, September 19 – 25 – a national, week-long campaign that brings together thousands of restaurants and millions of consumers to help end childhood hunger by 2015.

Last year more than 3,500 restaurants – multi-units and independents alike – participated in the Dine Out. It’s easy to sign up at and select the way in which your restaurant would like to contribute, e.g., a percentage (1-5%) of the week’s sales, a special menu promotion, merchandise sales, create a bounce back coupon or donation card, etc., or customize your contribution. The program is promoted nationally to consumers, and participating restaurants are listed on the Great American Dine Out Web site.

“Being socially conscious is a big part of our culinary community, and it’s critical to ending childhood hunger. That’s why we’re proud to support Share Our Strength year after year. Please join us!”
Michael Symon, chef, Lola Bistro, Cleveland, Ohio.

The Dine Out’s Resource Center online provides free point of purchase materials and customized (posters, customer donation cards, check stuffers, bounce back coupons), templates and guidelines (fact sheets, social media tips, publicity talking points, employee scripts, employee newsletter templates, etc.).
