That is why from August 15th to October 15th, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, the quick-casual fresh Mexican chain, is donating 20% of all proceeds from the sale of its new line of Baja Fresh No Kid Hungry gift cards to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign. Givex is contributing the technology for the gift program.

The No Kid Hungry campaign connects those in need with long-term help and resources such as school breakfast programs and educating families on shopping and cooking on a limited budget.

The Baja Fresh No Kid Hungry gift cards are powered by Givex, a global technology company and Baja Fresh's gift card program provider since 2005. Charitable contribution programs are one of Givex's many services.

"Helping end childhood hunger in America is a cause that resonates strongly with us," says Charles Rink President and CEO, Baja Fresh. "Our No Kid Hungry gift cards provide a convenient way for our guests to contribute to Share our Strength's programs and raise awareness in our communities. Our partnership with Givex allows for a seamless process for our operators to participate in supporting Share our Strength."
