Hudson Water Club joins Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out™         

 presented by American Express from September 21 – 28, 2008

 New historic initiative will end childhood hunger in America

 

West Haverstraw, NY — 9/11/18 — Hudson Water Club, Rockland’s newest waterfront restaurant is doing its part to ensure no child in America grows up hungry.  The Hudson Water Club joins Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out™ presented by American Express as a parti cipating restaurant. This new annual event is designed to rally the nation’s entire restaurant industry and encourage millions of consumers to dine out to end childhood hunger in America.

“One in every six children in America suffers from uncertain access to the healthy, nutritious foods they need to avoid the lifelong and devastating consequences of hunger,” said Billy Shore, founder of Share Our Strength. “We are in striking distance of ending childhood hunger by institutionalizing what we know has worked, and by joining forces together we can make this vision a reality.”

 

We at the Hudson Water Club feel that there is almost nothing more important then ending childhood hunger.  Our restaurant wants to be a responsible member of the community, and feel blessed that this opportunity to give back has presented itself.

 

The Hudson Water Club will  be donating a %  of it’s sales during  SEPT. 21-28; to help this worth while cause.

Thousands of restaurants are already participating in the Great American Dine Out, and more are joining daily. The Great American Dine Out is endorsed by many of the country’s top chefs including Chefs Thomas Keller, Mary Sue Milliken and Tom Collichio and industry executives Danny Meyer, Phil Friedman, Sally Smith and Wally Doolin. Food Network Star and host of the hit TV series Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri, has stepped up to serve as the national spokesperson.

 

The Great American Dine Out is presented by American Express.  Founding national sponsors are SYSCO Corporation, San Pellegrino, Acqua Panna, and Ecolab. Founding national partners are Food Network, etools, National Restaurant Association, Nation’s Restaurant News and OpenTable.
