Dunkin' Donuts representatives, including Sprinkles the Donut, presented Courtney Bagot from the North Texas Food Bank with a check for $20,000. The donation will fund the organization's Food 4 Kids backpack program, to provide food to children during the summer.
Dunkin’ Donuts, America's favorite everyday, all-day stop for coffee and baked goods, along with Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, celebrated the grand opening of its combination restaurant in Dallas at 14841 Coit Road on March 23, 2016. To commemorate the grand opening, the restaurant celebrated with a check presentation to the North Texas Food Bank. The check represents a $20,000 grant from The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation (DDBRCF)
The $20,000 grant from The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will provide 400 children with 4,000 backpacks filled with wholesome food during the summer, the hungriest time of the year. More than 300,000 children face hunger across the North Texas Food Bank’s 13-county service area each year and this grant will help North Texas Food Bank better serve those kids in need. Dunkin’ Donuts also delivered breakfast to the teachers and faculty at nearby Dover Elementary in Richardson, a North Texas Food Bank Food 4 Kids backpack program site, that morning.
“The North Texas Food Bank’s child feeding programs are critical to supporting the one in four kids in North Texas who are struggling with hunger,” said Jan Pruitt at the North Texas Food Bank. “With support from The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, we can ensure that more kids have access to the food needed to learn and thrive.”
