At Shake Shack for the entire month of May, you can assuage any caloric guilt you feel for ordering a shake by telling yourself, you did it for the kids.
During their second-annual Great American Shake Sale, any customer who donates $2 or more to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign will receive a card good for one hand spun shake ($5 value) on their next visit.
"Last year we launched the Great American Shake Sale to connect with our guests in a positive way about the serious issue of childhood hunger," said Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. "The response was unbelievable, and this year we're once again calling on our guests to make a donation to No Kid Hungry and help us take yet another step toward a reality where no child is hungry in our nation."
Last year, during the inaugural Shake Sale, the Shack raised $135,742 for the charity that helps feed hungry and food insecure children. That's
Last year, thanks to an incredible guest response, Shake Shack raised $135,742. At the minimum donation of $2, that's almost 70,000 shakes - we'll let you calculate the collective calories consumed. This year, Shake Shack hopes to surpass that goal and raise $150,000
The theme of the month-long fundraiser is inspired by Share Our Strength's Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry, which started in 2003.
"We are thrilled that Shake Shack will once again be supporting No Kid Hungry this year through their Great American Shake Sale," said Debbie Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength. "Last year they exceeded expectations, raising an unprecedented amount and showcasing their talent and hospitality in a way that only their team can. We are proud to be partnering with Shake Shack and their amazing team to end child hunger in America."
In keeping with that theme, Shake Shack is offering a line-up of bakery inspired custard flavors that can, of course, be turned into shakes.
The flavors will be available on a rotating daily schedule:
- Sunday -- Banana Bread
- Monday -- Lemon Meringue
- Tuesday -- Black & White Cookie
- Wednesday -- Oatmeal Crème Pie
- Thursday -- Olive Oil Cake
- Friday -- Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Saturday -- Spiced Chocolate Brownie
Rhubarb will be May's featured concrete mix-in.
