No Kid Hungry

'Round It Up' To Help Fight Hunger

Feb 4, 2015

Spare change can make the difference in the lives of children.

That’s the message from the Montana Retail and Restaurant Associations as they joined Governor Steve Bullock to launch a new program called “Round It Up Montana.”

It allows customers at participating restaurants and retailers to round up their bill to the nearest dollar. The proceeds go to charity.

The first 15 participating restaurants are all owned by Glacier Restaurant Group: Mackenzie River Pizza Company, Ciao Mambo, Latitude 48, and Craggy Ranger Bar and Grill.

One in five kids goes hungry in America - a statistic the national "No Kid Hungry" campaign hopes to change. Bill Shore is the founder of the national nonprofit working to end childhood hunger in America, and Oscar-winning actor, and part-time Montana resident, Jeff Bridges is the campaign's national spokesman.
