Share Our Strength's Dine Out For No Kid
Murphy has joined forces with Share Our Strength for their Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. The fundraiser helps Share Our Strength fight childhood hunger in America.
"We need to have smart kids to keep our country going, so we've got to feed them. It's pretty basic," Murphy said.
All you have to do is dine out at participating restaurants. 75 Denver Metro area restaurants participated this year, and many of their promotions extend until Sep. 29.
Each restaurant's promotion is unique: some give a portion of their proceeds to the cause, while others give patrons a discount if they donate.
Some 8,000 restaurants across America are participating in the fundraiser. Last year, 5,000 restaurants participated.
Murphy says there's a reason he's joined this particular cause.
"I'm involved with this because I'm a father and I'm a chef. I think that chefs have a natural instinct of wanting to feed people and caring for people."
