Eat at la Madeleine, help No Kid Hungry

Eat at la Madeleine, help No Kid Hungry

ATLANTA -- La Madeleine Country French Café is making it easy for customers to help hungry kids.

The restaurant chain has teamed up with Share Our Strength to support its annual fundraiser, Dine Out for No Kid Hungry.

"It is tragic that there are kids in our own communities going to bed hungry when there is a solution," la Madeleine president and COO Phil Costner said in a statement. "This is why the la Madeleine family has joined the ranks of those who can and are doing something about it."

From Wednesday, Sept. 5 through Saturday, Sept. 22, la Madeleine customers who donate at least $1 to No Kid Hungry will receive a free triple chocolate peppermint cookie.

A $5 donation will score customers a coupon booklet featuring $20 worth of coupons for la Madeleine favorites, such as bakery treats and the chain's famous tomato basil soup.
