Round-Up For Charity on The Habit Mobile App and More


(Irvine, CA) September 1st, 2020 The Habit Burger Grill, the California-based restaurant company renowned for its award-winning Charburgers, signature sandwiches, fresh-cut salads, and more is proud to announce the next chapter in their ongoing partnership with No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end childhood hunger in America.

The Habit Burger Grill is eager to help tackle this challenge and ensure all kids get the nutritious meals they need.

As a member of the restaurant industry, we are honored to help give kids the essential meals they need through our round-up program.”


“Since 2015, The Habit Burger Grill has shown its dedication and support to No Kid Hungry and helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “No child deserves to go hungry in the United States, yet 1 in 4 kids could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus. We’re so thankful for our continued partnership with The Habit Burger Grill that helps feed kids now and into the recovery to come.”
