Renowned for outstanding hardwood grilled steaks, chops and seafood, Birk’s has evolved into a South Bay icon since its inception in 1989. Driven by exceeding the expectations of guests and striving for excellence, Birk’s excels at consistently executed, straight forward cuisine in a lively ambiance of understated elegance and casual sophistication. “Birk’s is proud to support Share our Strength’s effort to end childhood hunger for our fifth year,” said Birk’s owner, David Whitcomb. “It must be our priority to end childhood hunger in America.
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 child 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 on 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. 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.”
