The Habit Burger Grill Continues Fight to Help End Childhood Hunger in America

Partners Again with No Kid Hungry® and Offers Free Charburger with
Cheese for Donations of $2 or More

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Habit
Restaurant
, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is continuing its commitment to help
end childhood hunger in America. The popular restaurant is partnering
again with No Kid Hungry with the goal of raising funds to provide
healthy meals to kids across the nation that are unsure of their next
meal.

One in five kids in the U.S. struggles with hunger. The Habit Burger
Grill, together with its loyal guests, is committed to changing this.
The Habit will be collecting donations for No Kid Hungry and offering
guests, who donate $2 or more to the No
Kid Hungry
campaign, a free Charburger with Cheese certificate, good
on a return visit now through the end of September.

“We are excited to have The Habit Burger participate in their second
Dine Out for No Kid Hungry promotion this September,” said Billy Shore,
Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength, which operates the No Kid Hungry
campaign. “They are a valued partner that lends their special energy and
commitment to our cause, and we’re grateful for their support in helping
us end child hunger in the United States.”

“We don’t take for granted the value of a quality meal, and for millions
of Americans, especially children, those meals don’t always come easily.
That’s why supporting No Kid Hungry is so important to us, and why we
want to give something back to the communities we serve and our loyal
guests who support this effort,” said Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit
Burger Grill.

Last year The Habit contributed $200,000 to No Kid Hungry, providing
more than 2 million meals to kids.

“Our hope to significantly increase this support and help more kids
across the country,” added Bendel.

On September 1, Bendel will be joined by No Kid Hungry executives to
ring the NASDAQ opening bell together to call attention to the issue of
childhood hunger in America.

No Kid Hungry is to make childhood hunger a thing of the past. In
partnership with local programs, No Kid Hungry works with children and
families how to shop on a budget and cook healthier meals.
