Quinton, age 5, lives with his grandmother Jamie in Dallas. Quinton is able to eat free breakfast and lunch at school, and accesses a free summer meals program at a local park. Even at such a young age, Quinton knows that food can get scarce and that there is not always enough money to buy the kinds of foods that he wishes he could have.

His grandmother, Jamie, works full time as a teacher, but still has trouble making ends meet. She is grateful for nutrition programs because they ensure that Quinton gets enough healthy food to learn and grow. Having been a teacher most of her life, Jamie understands the importance of school meals and how a well-fed child performs better in the classroom. She knows that hungry kids can’t concentrate, and it’s hard for them to learn. She firmly believes that children will “do better at school and function better with a nutritious meal.” Read More

What is Round It Up America®?

Founded by leaders in the restaurant industry, Round It Up America® (RIUA) is a non-profit organization that strives to make change across America through a simple, yet powerful charitable giving program.

Mission Partners - participating RIUA restaurants - provide their patrons with the opportunity to "round up" their purchases to the nearest dollar upon the close of credit card sales. Donations are then distributed to charities quarterly.

In addition to being a platform for the American public to donate to charity, Round It Up America® serves as a vehicle for Mission Partners to easily increase company giving. Mission Partners simply select up to three charities each year to be recipients of their patrons' donations. While the individual donations may be nominal, their collective sum is powerful. Small change can indeed make big change.

Who are we helping?

Local non-profit agencies, including food banks, homeless shelters, crisis relief centers, emergency assistance for military troops and their families, and services that protect the welfare of children and older adults living in our communities.
