To kick off this year’s Shake Sale, Shake Shack is introducing three new featured shakes, available for a limited time:
• Brownie Batter: chocolate brownie batter frozen custard blended with fudge sauce, topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles
• Cinnamon Dulce De Leche: vanilla frozen custard blended with dulce de leche and cinnamon, topped with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar
• Red Velvet Cake: vanilla frozen custard blended with cream cheese-frosted red velvet cake and topped with whipped cream
Thanks to the deep generosity of its guests in 2016, Shake Shack surpassed its goal of raising $500,000 for No Kid Hungry by nearly $100,000. In total, Shake Shack has raised over $1.7 million for No Kid Hungry in the six years since the Great American Shake Sale began. Shake Shack’s goal for 2017 is to raise an additional $500,000 for No Kid Hungry.
Donations to No Kid Hungry help connect children to the healthy food they need through essential nutrition programs like school breakfast, summer meals and classes for low-income families about healthy shopping and home cooking. Just $2 can provide kids with 20 meals. If Shake Shack reaches its goal of raising $500,000 this year, that’s 5 million meals for hungry children in America.
“The Great American Shake Sale has become such a meaningful tradition for the Shake Shack family,” said Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. “No Kid Hungry’s work to end childhood hunger is more important now than ever, and we’re so grateful to team up with them for the sixth consecutive year.”
“The enthusiasm and generosity of the entire Shake Shack community continues to inspire,” said Debbie Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength. “As we enter our sixth year, I couldn’t be prouder of the partnership we have created and the work we have done to help ensure that more kids have access to healthy food where they live, learn and play. Since the launch of the No Kid Hungry campaign, one-third fewer children are now facing hunger–that’s nearly 3 million fewer children.”
Shake Sales are being held internationally, too: the Great Japanese Shake Sale will benefit Hatachi Kikin; the Great Russian Shake Sale will benefit Food Bank RUS; the Great British Shake Sale will benefit Action Against Hunger; and the Great Korean Shake Sale will benefit Green Fund.
About Shake Shack (from company website)
Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and flat-top Vienna beef dogs (no added hormones and no antibiotics ever), 100% all-natural cage-free chicken (no antibiotics ever), spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine (available at select locations) and more.
The company sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan, created by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation “I ♥ Taxi.” The cart was quite the success, with Shack fans lined up daily for three summers.
Shake Shack was officially born in July 2004 when USHG won the bid to open a permanent kiosk in the Park. Its green architecture was designed to make it harmonious with the park and its surroundings. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of classic American fare in a majestic setting.
Shake Shack remains a fun and lively community-gathering place with widespread appeal. From its premium ingredients and caring hiring practices to its environmentally responsible designs and deep community investment, Shake Shack’s mission is to Stand For Something Good®. Since the original Shack opened in 2004, the company has opened multiple locations in 15 states and the District of Columbia, as well as international locations in London, Tokyo, Istanbul, Dubai, Moscow, Seoul and more.
