As one of the leading restaurant partners to No Kid Hungry, Noodles & Company has raised over $2 million to date throughout its annual campaigns, helping to provide meals to hungry children across America.
Due to the coronavirus, the rate of childhood hunger has nearly doubled from its pre-pandemic rate. In fact, 1 in 4 children could face hunger this year.
