Culver's of Arlington Heights Launches Campaign To Support Feed My Starving Children
Culver's of Arlington Heights has launched an ongoing fundraising program that will accept guest donations and encourage its younger diners to forgo their dessert coupons and use them to help feed hungry children living all around the world.
Culver's of Arlington Heights will match every donated Kid's Meal custard coupon in order to help feed children throughout the world who struggle to receive even just one meal a day. Each custard coupon that is donated will feed two children a day's worth of meals.
Combined, all donations will go directly to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a non-profit organization founded in 1987 that has provided more than two billion nutritionally complete meals to children living in more than 60 countries around the world. Each day, hundreds of volunteers visit local FMSC distribution centers in Aurora, Libertyville and Schaumburg to package food for hungry children living in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, North and Central America, and South America.
"Serving our guests is the reason that we open our doors every day," explains Culver's owner Chuck Martin. "We are excited that guests will have an opportunity to support our efforts to feed all of God's children, especially those who struggle for even one meal a day. It's an opportunity for both our guests and team members to work together to make an impact on the worldwide hunger crises."
In addition to Culver's of Arlington Heights, located at 2060 Northwest Highway, Martin's other Chicago area locations will also participate, including Aurora- Rt. 59, Bolingbrook, Crystal Lake, Darien, Mt. Prospect, Rosemont and Schaumburg-Wise Rd.
Feed My Starving Children relies primarily on children and adults of all ages hand-packing nutritious 'MannaPack' meals specifically designed to assist in reversing and preventing undernutrition. Receiving the highest awards for integrity and trustworthiness, FMSC sees more than 90 percent of total donations spent directly on meal production, with each meal costing less than 25 cents.
