Do you need another reason to eat more pancakes?

Oh, well here's one: Participating IHOP restaurants will sell $1 short stacks on Tuesday, Aug. 25 to help end child hunger. It's part of the restaurant's "Summer of Smiles" program in partnership with the nonprofit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 25, IHOP will donate 50 cents of every $1 stack of buttermilk pancakes to No Kid Hungry in an effort to reach their goal of providing 2.5 million meals this year.

“The simple act of feeding kids a healthy breakfast can have a dramatic impact on their academic, health and economic futures,” Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share our Strength, said in a statement.

In addition to the short stack promo, IHOP will continue to ask for donations throughout the month on its receipts and promote the No Kid Hungry campaign online and through social media.

But for a day, a short stack for you is a meal for a kid in need. What are you waiting for? Get hopping.
