HOUSTON, Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- From Oceanside, Calif., to Deptford, N.J. – and everywhere in between – team members at Joe's Crab Shack 's 135 locations worked tirelessly to raise nearly $1.1 million during the month of September for Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign. Share Our Strength estimates that Joe's donation will help provide more than 10 million meals to children who are struggling with hunger in this country.

"Joe's set a goal of raising at least $1 million to fight a crisis that threatens our nation's future," said Jim Mazany, Joe's Crab Shack president and 2013 chair of the Share Our Strength's Dine Out For No Kid Hungry Advisory Board. "Our team and our guests answered the call in a huge way, exceeding our goals and touching the lives of millions of children across America."

As a national partner and leading fundraiser for No Kid Hungry, Joe's rallied communities, guests and team members all month long to join in the fight against childhood hunger. Guests donated in increments ranging from $1-$10 in exchange for coupons redeemable for various menu items. Local general managers added to the fun – demonstrating their 100% Shore attitude – with fundraising events ranging from crab boils, beanbag-toss events, dunk tanks and more. Joe's locations throughout the country held more than 200 fundraising events in September in hopes of ending childhood hunger in America. A longtime supporter of the cause, Joe's has raised more than $3.3 million for No Kid Hungry since 2008.

"We want to thank Joe's amazing team of passionate staff who worked hard to spread the No Kid Hungry message and their devoted guests who gave so generously to the effort. Their dedication to our goal of eliminating childhood hunger is inspiring," said Share Our Strength founder and Chief Executive Officer Billy Shore.
