ROCKWALL – During the month of May, la Madeleine French Country Cafe has pledged to raise 1.2 million meals ($300,000) for Children’s Hunger Fund through its Hearts for Hope campaign.
Rockwall’s la Madeleine cafe is located in the Rockwall Crossing Shopping Center at 987 East I-30.
From May 1 to 31, la Madeleine will donate $1 for every single legendary heart-shaped Linzer cookie or any other cookie purchased.
Guests who donate $5 to the cause will receive a card with six offers for free la Madeleine favorites, worth over $20. The card includes a variety of offers ranging from a free loaf of bread or baguette to a free specialty croissant, cup of soup, patisserie and more.
All proceeds, or 100 percent of every donation, will go directly to the Children’s Hunger Fund and each dollar donated will provide four meals for children in need.
“We are proud to partner with Children’s Hunger Fund as part of our commitment to make a difference and help in the fight to end childhood hunger,” said John Cahill, president of la Madeleine. “Our dedication to fighting childhood hunger through our “Hearts for Hope” campaign and year-round initiatives with Children’s Hunger Fund is incredibly important to our la Madeleine family.”
The partnership between la Madeleine and Children’s Hunger Fund has grown closer with the opening of its first distribution center in Dallas. Members of la Madeleine’s corporate team were the first volunteers to work at the new facility, which marks the second distribution center for the organization in Texas.
“La Madeleine is a special company and valued partner – one that we feel shares our devotion to serving children in crisis,” said Dave Phillips, president and founder of Children’s Hunger Fund, which has raised over $1 billion for food and other aid to more than 20 million children in the United States and worldwide.
