Ikea is giving kids free meals and donating $1 to “Feeding the Future” to support the fight to end hunger.
Collaborating with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, Ikea will help support local Feeding America member food banks. Through the “Feeding the Future” program, Ikea U.S. will donate $1 to local Feeding America food banks for every healthy kid’s meal purchased at any Ikea U.S. restaurant through June 30. Long Island Cares and Island Harvest are the two food banks that will benefit from this initiative on Long Island. The four healthy kid’s meals in the program include: organic penne pasta with marinara sauce; grilled chicken with baby carrots, strawberries and string cheese; vegetable ball with steamed vegetables; and Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.
Additionally, kids ages 12 and younger can eat for free Mondays through Fridays now through July 29 with the purchase of one adult entree. Customers can get up to two kid’s meals with each adult entree purchase.
“There are millions of Americans, including children, who struggle with hunger every day,” Gerd Diewald, Ikea U.S. food manager said in a news release. “We want to support our customers and local communities, and also help our customers to support their local food banks. Collaborating with the Feeding America network, along with our commitment to healthy eating, benefits many in need.”
