MonAlyssa Asks for Help Fighting Hunger
Restaurant in Point Boro is one of thousands in U.S. to help fight childhood hunger
MonAlyssa, a Point Borough pizzeria and restaurant, is asking for the community's help in its fight against hunger.
Because more than 16 million American children face hunger, MonAlyssa and thousands of restaurants nationwide are supporting Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry®" campaign by raising funds through Share Our Strength’s Dine Out For No Kid Hungry program.
MonAlyssa, on Bay Avenue just off Bridge Avenue, will be donating $1.00 from each entrée sale from now until Sept. 23.
MonAlyssa customers who donate $5.00 will receive a $5.00 MonAlyssa Gift Certificate valid on any purchase from October 1-31.
"MonAlyssa is excited to help Share our Strength’s Dine Out program," said Brian Alvarez, co-owner of MonAlyssa Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria. "This will be our third year supporting this great organization that does so much to help kids in this country by feeding them healthy meals.”
MonAlyssa Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is family-owned and operated since 2007.
"We pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients, offering exceptional food at moderate prices, giving impeccable service, and paying attention to details," Alvarez said.
Now in its fifth year, Dine Out For No Kid Hungry has raised more than $4 million for the No Kid Hungry campaign — funds that are used to raise awareness about childhood hunger in the U.S.; create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need; support school breakfast, summer and after-school meal programs; and educate kids and their families about how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength.
“I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September," Shore said. "Then visit NoKidHungry.org to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”
