Mission & About

Denny's Hungry for Education™ scholarship program mission
Recognize deserving students by awarding them with scholarships for their ideas to help Denny’s bring communities together.


What is Denny's Hungry for Education™?

In an effort to help fight childhood hunger and promote education, Denny’s launched the Hungry for Education Scholarship program in 2011, and has since awarded more than $1MM in combined scholarships to deserving elementary, high school and college students across the country.  Annually in September, Denny's identifies strategic partners to award scholarships to students that submit essays on how they can help fight childhood hunger in their communities, and one deserving student is selected by Denny’s to have their idea be put into action in their community.
