Janet Scardino, President of commercial, 19 Entertainment said of the partnership, "In addition to serving great cheesecake, The Cheesecake Factory believes in giving back to their communities. The Idols and I are so passionate about the work that Feeding America does to help feed hungry Americans, and we're thrilled that this new cheesecake will benefit them."
On July 30th, The Cheesecake Factory will be offering its dine-in guests the option to purchase a slice of one of their 30 plus flavored cheesecakes at half-price. Each slice sold will go to benefiting Feeding America. In the past, The Cheesecake Factory has donated over $1.2 million dollars to the organization in an effort to help end hunger.
The Cheesecake Factory will donate the equivalent of 3.5 million meals on National Cheesecake Day through the sale of the newest cheesecake slices. According to Feeding America’s main website, one dollar provides 7 meals for hungry people across the nation.
Feeding America serves over 37 million people a year through food banks and Network programs including Kids Cafe, Disaster Relief, National Produce Program and the BackPack Program. Support Feeding America by heading to The Cheesecake Factory and celebrating National Cheesecake Day. You will be feeding the hungry with each delicious slice.
If cheesecake isn’t an option, you can head go to Feeding America’s website and use the interactive guide to find a food bank near you to donate food goods or you can make a monetary donation. Remember $1 equals 7 meals for those who are hungry.
