Through September, Fuzzy’s Souvenir Cups Will Benefit “Dine Out For No Kid Hungry”, Providing Meals for Children in Need
Fort Worth, TX- Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has partnered with Share Our Strength on their No Kid Hungry initiative for the month of September, helping provide meals for children in America. Throughout the month all Fuzzy’s Taco Shop locations will donate $0.25 from each souvenir cup sold to No Kid Hungry. The cost to connect a child with 10 meals is $1; each year though the Share Our Strength initiative, Fuzzy’s connects thousands of children to their next meal. Last year, Fuzzy’s raised $87,000 across all locations, and hopes to surpass that amount in funds raised this year.
“At Fuzzy’s Taco Shop we are in the business of feeding people, so it’s heartbreaking to know there are folks out there who don’t know where their next meal is coming from, especially when it comes to children,” said Mel Knight, President of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. “1 in 6 children in America don’t get sufficient meals and this statistic is simply not acceptable. We are proud to partner with Share Our Strength each year and participate in helping to provide children in need with meals, and families with the tools to make educated decisions when it comes to preparing meals.”
Dining with Fuzzy’s this month and by purchasing one of the special-edition souvenir cups, guests can help No Kid Hungry launch school breakfast programs, recruit summer meal sites, and empower families to shop for and prepare healthy meals. As a donor, they will also be helping No Kid Hungry provide grants to hunger-fighting organizations across the country to help them end child hunger within their communities. As guests enjoy their meal at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, they are also helping a worthy cause.
Share Our Strength started on Capitol Hill in 1984 because of the famine in Ethiopia during 1984 and 1985. While the organization, started by brother and sister duo Bill and Debbie Shore, had many focuses globally for fighting hunger and poverty, Share Our Strength focuses their efforts, now, on making No Kid Hungry a true reality in America. No Kid Hungry works toward ending child hunger in America by helping connect kids to effective nutrition programs.

About Fuzzy’s Taco Shop
The original Fuzzy’s Taco Shop on Berry Street in Fort Worth, Texas is where the brand’s version of taco heaven was created in 2003. It would have frosty drinks. It would have good vibes. It would be a huge, craving-inducing success. With the continued dedication to serve fresh Mexican-food favorites and the addition of frosty drinks, Fuzzy’s earned a cult-like following, and that first location turned into more than 100 across the country. That means no matter where you roam, you’re never far from Baja tacos, guac and chips, and frozen margaritas. Which is reason enough to celebrate with some, as far as we’re concerned.
