St. Louis, MO  (RestaurantNewsRelease.com)  Liberty Restaurant Group (LRG) is proud to announce its participation in Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out®, a week-long national restaurant event in cities across the United States. From September 19-25, 2010, thousands of restaurants, including LRG with its’ 23 Burger King locations in the St. Louis metropolitan area will join together in raising funds to support No Kid Hungry™, Share Our Strength’s national campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.

Last year, nearly 4,000 restaurants of every size and type helped the Great American Dine Out raise nearly $800,000 by donating a portion of the week’s sales, offering special promotions, or collecting donations from their customers. One of the most successful promotions that will be used broadly again this year was a coupon that customers receive from the restaurant by making a minimum donation to Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out; the coupon provided a discount or free item on a future visit to the participating restaurant. This year, LRG is participating by doing a coupon for a free kids meal of any kind and for each coupon that is redeemed a donation of 25cents will be made.

“We chose to participate because the Great American Dine Out supports our commitment to the youth and the initiatives that we have already put in place to invest into our own backyard,” says Kelly Hasty, Liberty Restaurant Group.

The Great American Dine Out is sponsored by Sysco, Ecolab, American Express, USA Today and the National Restaurant Association.
