Plano, TX (RestaurantNews.com) MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, the “better burger” fast-casual franchise, is celebrating National Hamburger Day by giving back to those who need it most during this unprecedented time and all year long. In partnership with the Certified Angus Beef® brand, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes will be donating $.50 for every burger sold on National Hamburger Day, May 28, to No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end childhood hunger in America.

1 in 4 children in the US could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus. With COVID-19 resulting in school closures across the country, millions of children have lost the healthy school meals they depend on. In addition, this crisis has left millions of Americans struggling to afford food for their children. No Kid Hungry has a plan to make sure they are fed, both during this crisis and in its aftermath. Through a combination of emergency grants, strategic partnerships, advocacy and awareness, No Kid Hungry is equipping communities with the resources they need. Now, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes is helping No Kid Hungry achieve this mission while also keeping customers satisfied with delicious burgers.
“As schools have closed and millions of Americans are struggling, the work that No Kid Hungry does to provide meals to children in need is even more pressing,” said Natalie Anderson Liu, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes Vice President of Brand. “The purchase of a Certified Angus Beef ® burger at MOOYAH on National Hamburger Day will help make sure kids get the meals they need — during school closures and beyond. Together, we can ensure that no child has to go without the food they need.”
If subscribed to the MOOYAH loyalty app, Guests will also earn ten bonus points for every brand burger purchased on May 28. In addition, MOOYAH Guests can donate directly to No Kid Hungry using nokidhungry.org/mooyah.

Each gourmet burger can be customized with five real cheeses, bacon, avocado and 20 free sauces and toppings made from garden-fresh veggies.
