Maine restaurants join Share Our Strength anti-hunger effort

September is Dine Out for No Kid Hungry month, and dozens of restaurants in Maine are participating in this national fundraising effort by Share Our Strength to help end childhood hunger.

Here in Maine, one in five children is "food insecure," meaning they may not know where their next meal is coming from. Or, they may have access to something to eat, like chips or candy, but it is far from nutritious.

The following restaurants are doing their part with promotions to benefit Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. You can do yours by visiting them as often as you can this month.
