We're working with Citi and No Kid Hungry for their Dine & Do Good program, which aims to raise up to $2 million to fight childhood hunger in America. That’s enough for 20 million meals for kids in need. Enroll your Citi® card, and every time you spend $5 or more dining out, Citi will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry.

Want to do even more? When you dine out and share a photo of your meal with us using the tag #f52grams from 8/3 to 8/10, you’ll enter our Instagram contest.** We’ll re-gram the winner and donate $1,000 to NKH in the name of the food photographer who made doing good look best.

Thirteen million American children will face hunger this year. That means one in six US kids don't get the food they need, especially during the summer when school is out. These are staggering numbers, to say the least, and ones that we want to see come down to zero. But that requires a little help, so this summer, we're joining Citi in their Dine & Do Good program, which supports the organization No Kid Hungry in fighting childhood hunger in America.

From now through December 31, Citi will donate $1 each time a Citi cardmember spends $5 or more dining out with his or her enrolled Citi® card (you can enroll your Citi card here). They will donate up to $2 million, which is enough for No Kid Hungry to provide 20 million meals for kids in need across America. And here's how we can give even more, together: Share your best photo of your meal with us on Instagram from August 3 to 10 by using the tag #f52grams—we'll be donating $1,000 to No Kid Hungry in the winner's name to support this initiative.

No Kid Hungry also happens to be the charity we at Food52 are supporting in a big way in 2017—our community members chose them in March as the organization we'd direct our charitable giving to this year. One in six children in America suffer from hunger, our editor Lindsay-Jean reports; No Kid Hungry hopes to change this jaw-dropping statistic.

As No Kid Hungry explains in their 2016 annual report, they work to close the gap between hungry children and programs like school breakfast, school lunch, and summer meals—when school-provided meals are not available for hungry children. No Kid Hungry builds "the will and skill to reach more kids with food." Through activism and education, the organization has provided 500 million meals since their launch in 2010. By the end of 2017, with Citi's support, we hope they can add 20 million more meals to that number. So what are you waiting for? Start dining out to do good, and stat.

We're working with Citi and No Kid Hungry for their Dine & Do Good program, which aims to raise up to $2 million to fight childhood hunger in America by donating $1 to No Kid Hungry every time a Citi cardmember spends at least $5 dining out with their Citi credit card. Dining out to support Dine & Do Good? Share a photo of your meal with us on Instagram from 8/3 to 8/10 by using the tag #f52grams.
