Columbus, Ohio, February 20, 2019 – Over a dozen restaurants in the Short North Arts District are partnering with Children’s Hunger Alliance for Short North Give Days. From February 20-27, diners at participating Short North Arts District restaurants will receive 5% off their food bill when they make a text donation to Children’s Hunger Alliance.
“As a unique arts and dining destination, restaurants in the Short North Arts District are coming together
to help eliminate childhood hunger in Ohio by rewarding customers who join in this fight,” said Betsy
Pandora, Executive Director of the Short North Alliance.
In Ohio, over 529,000 children – or more than 1 in 5 children – live in food insecure households and
struggle with hunger. Studies have shown that children who suffer from food insecurity are more inclined
to have developmental delays, lag behind in school, and have long-term health issues. For the past 49
years, Children’s Hunger Alliance’s purpose is to ensure that Ohio’s at-risk children receive the healthy
meals and nutrition education needed to learn, grow and thrive.
“We are honored to unite with the Short North Arts District to bring awareness to the stark reality that food
insecurity is prevalent, not only in our state, but in our community. The District’s partnership represents
their commitment to our children and our city,” said Kathryn Stephens, Vice President of Development for
Children’s Hunger Alliance.
Customers can simply Text FOOD4KIDS to 74121, make a donation, and show their donation receipt to
receive 5% off their food bill from February 20-27 at participating restaurants.
