Citi is once again teaming up with No Kid Hungry to help put the kibosh on childhood hunger by launching a new fundraising campaign called Dine & Do Good, created to let cardholders pitch in and help out by doing one thing – eating out and paying with their credit card.

To get started cardholders simply enroll their card on the website Citi set up for this event. From that point on every time they spend at least $5 to eat out, whether that’s getting a burger at a fast food joint, a fancy donut and a latte or a full on meal at a four-star restaurant, Citi will donate one buck to the cause.

They launched a similar campaign in 2015, and this one draws upon the success of that campaign, with Citi hoping to raise $1 million in 2016 for No Kid Hungry. They point to the fact that in the U.S one in five children battle hunger, and that low nutrition can affect not only kids school life, but their social and emotional development too.

“At Citi, we care deeply about helping to end childhood hunger and through this campaign, we are proud to be helping kids gain access to healthy food,” said Jud Linville, CEO, Citi Global Cards and Consumer Services. “Simply by dining out, Citi card members can support this effort with us and have a transformative impact on this country’s youth.”

New York Mets helping out

The Citi Community Home Runs program is also teaming up with the New York Mets to raise money for No Kid Hungry. During the baseball season every time one of the team hit a home run at Citi Field, Citi is going to donate $2,000 to organization, enough to finance 20,000 meals for hungry kids.

And there is more

Citi has been committed to helping raise money for No Kid Hungry for years, and as part of this initiative cardholders can continue to support the organization by going to their events, which also includes Taste of the Nation and No Kid Hungry Dinners.

Taste of the Nation takes place in 40 cities and involves over 3,000 chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs, while No Kid Hungry Dinners are more intimate dinners, which feature top notch chefs and restaurants, along with one of a kind auctions.
