Eat out to help fight hunger

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- While eating out at Barmuda Companies this week, you have a chance to help end childhood hunger. Nearly 17 million children in America-almost one of every four-lack the resources to put healthy meals on the table every day.

It's the Great American Dine Out. It's a week-long national event taking place in cities across the US through, including the Cedar Valley.

Last year, nearly 4,000 restaurants teamed up to raise nearly $800,000 dollars by donating a portion of the week's sales. This year, Barmuda is participating by donating 5% of all restaurant profits, The event wraps up Saturday.
