We know how important it is for schools across the country to identify and remove barriers that prevent students from accessing the nutrition and higher educational opportunities they need in order to learn and succeed.
Currently, according to No Kid Hungry, 22% of U.S. children under age 18 live in poverty, struggling every day with hunger that holds them back from striving to do their best in school. That’s why we have partnered with Denny’s Hungry for Education campaign, a program awarding over $50,000 in scholarships and special incentives to high school and college students for their innovative ideas on childhood hunger.
Here’s How It Works
- You can apply for a $2,500 Hungry for Education scholarship at www.dennyshungryforeducation.com.

Upon completion of the form in Step 1, students will receive a 20% off Denny’s coupon plus a free breakfast coupon on their birthday and automatically have their school registered for the grand prize.
