FohBoh Joins Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry to Help End Childhood Hunger in America

 

FohBoh is proud to announce its partnership with Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a national restaurant event in cities across the United States. Funds raised through the program support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to end childhood hunger in America. To prepare for September’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, FohBoh will be supporting the Dine Out efforts in the community and other media/social media sites as well as incorporating the Dine Out in their annual conference, FSMU (Foodservice Social Media Universe) the only conference created and tailored to the restaurant and hospitality industries.

More than 16 million children in America—almost one of five—struggle with hunger. FohBoh is joining dozens other corporate partners, thousands of restaurants, and millions of consumers, all working with Share Our Strength to change that.

"As members of the restaurant industry we are in the business of feeding people,"  says Sarah Atkinson, Director, Social Media Marketing at FohBoh. "There is no excuse for the vast numbers of children that worry about where their next meal will come from. With the industry's support, and Share our Strength trailblazing the way, we can and will change that by 2015."

“We are asking everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers and other nonprofits—to help us end childhood hunger in this country,” said Bill Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength.  “We continue to be amazed by the generosity and commitment of the restaurant industry, its suppliers and customers. Last year, they raised nearly $2.4 million through Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a record high. Our goal is to involve the entire industry and its customers in Dine Out For No Kid Hungry this September and help make No Kid Hungry America’s reality.”

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
