Chrysler Teams up With No Kid Hungry Campaign to end Childhood Hunger
It’s not uncommon for big-name brands to designate charitable funding for specific causes – going as far as forging philanthropic relationships for the greater good, and the Chrysler brand is no exception. The brand recently teamed up with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign whose focus is to end childhood hunger in America today. Chrysler’s support will help No Kid Hungry to continue their life-saving work, improving the lives of families all across the country by making sure that children have the food and nutrition they need to not only survive but succeed as well.
According to statistics gathered by the No Kid Hungry campaign, one in six children in America currently lives with hunger. When children lack proper nutrition, they are more likely to struggle in class, thus endangering the future that hinges on their education. No Kid Hungry is solely devoted to getting meals into the hands and bellies of children in need. In fact, since the first campaign launched in 2010, No Kid Hungry managed to reduce the number of children who face hunger by one-third – no small feat if you ask us! Chrysler is currently working with the campaign to provide up to 1.5 million meals that will no doubt make a difference.
Steve Beahm (Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA- North America) specified how important the partnership is for the Chrysler brand, stating “Through our partnership with No Kid Hungry, the Chrysler brand is able to help bring awareness to childhood hunger and support the organization’s work across America.” In fact, Beahm goes even further to make an impassioned plea that makes it clear this is an issue near and dear to the Chrysler brand – he expands on his initial statement as follows:
“Childhood hunger is a solvable problem. No child in America should go without a meal and, as a trusted family brand, our work with this campaign will help ensure more kids across the country have the food they need to learn and grow.”
Chrysler’s partnership with No Kid Hungry will be amplified via exposure on the brand’s digital and social media channels, coupled with their sponsorship of several upcoming events. The first event on the calendar is the Taste of the Nation event in which premier chefs, sommeliers, and mixologists make their way through more than 25 cities devoting their time and skills to help end childhood hunger. Taste of the Nation draws about 3,000 chefs and 25,000 attendees, raising funds and spreading awareness about how prevalent childhood hunger is.
Chefs Cycle is another event that also combines fundraising and entertainment in the name of ending childhood hunger. In this event, famous chefs complete a three-day, 300-mile bike ride in the name of No Kid Hungry, once again to raise funds and help bring awareness to the cause. Chrysler will also be responsible for spreading awareness of the last event – a nationwide bake sale calling on regular people to do their part and sell baked goods to help raise money to end childhood hunger.
The Chrysler brand continues to raise the bar, not only in its philanthropic endeavors but in their vehicles as well. Chrysler has gone above and beyond after first introducing the minivan back in the day – now their Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid (first hybrid in its segment!) boast Uconnect infotainment systems fully equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, a Uconnect theater with available streaming and two 10-inch touchscreens and their exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating that makes room for more cargo during family adventures.
