Denny’s Hungry for Education Scholarship

At the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce, 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. 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 $200,000 in scholarships and special incentives to elementary, high school and college students for their innovative ideas on childhood hunger.

Denny’s will provide two (2) Hungry for Education scholarship with an amount of $3,000 each. Students can get involved with Hungry for Education by applying at www.dennyshungryforeducation.com.
