Over the weekend, Paula Abdul visited the Denny’s on Sunset Boulevard to serve unsuspecting customers coffee and breakfast as part of a No Kid Hungry initiative where nearly 15,000 restaurants are offering customers major deals in exchange for simple donations to No Kid Hungry, the campaign working to end childhood hunger in America.

Dressed in a full uniform, Paula Abdul spread the word of No Kid Hungry and it’s Dine Out initiative going on this September. Families enjoyed meals served by Abdul and supported No Kid Hungry along the way. Abdul sat with customers enjoying their breakfast while chatting about the No Kid Hungry’s Dine Out Program.

“It’s a really amazing program. People are pretty excited about being able to donate a dollar and having that provide up to 10 meals for kids who are hungry” Paula said.


With thousands of eating options on the menu—from family diners and fast food empires, to fine dining and neighborhood joints—there’s a meal to match all tastes and budgets. And for every $1 donated, No Kid Hungry can feed a child 10 meals through on-the-ground programs and partnerships that connect kids with healthy food where they live, learn and play.

Dine Out for No Kid Hungry is the largest restaurant-led initiative to help end childhood hunger in America. Since its launch in 2008, restaurants have raised $37 million in support of No Kid Hungry to help ensure every kid gets a healthy meal, every day.


No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 5 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
