Hot Stuff Foods launches Kids' Charities

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- As Hot Stuff Foods readies for the 11th annual Hot Stuff Foods Charity Golf Challenge, the company's chairman and president Des Hague, announced the national launching of Hot Stuff Warm Hearts Kids' Charities to all of their operators, franchisees and licensees.

The Hot Stuff Warm Hearts Kids' Charities program is the umbrella for all of Hot Stuff Foods community and charitable activities and is focused on improving the health and welfare of children.

Most notable of the company's activities is the [image-nocss] aforementioned Hot Stuff Foods Challenge, which has raised nearly $2 million for the Children's Home Society (, a non-profit organization that provides a home, school, and therapy for children with emotional and behavior problems, as well as an emergency shelter and counseling service for women and children, who are victims of domestic abuse.

We are finding that we have a great number of our operators share our passion for giving back to their communities and their children, said Hague. What we want to do with our Hot Stuff Warm Hearts Kids' Charities program is help them expand their efforts and impact in their own communities.

Effective immediately, Hot Stuff Foods is introducing the program, complete with marketing tools and campaigns that their operators can use in their own communities.

Our business model and philosophy of Creating Value Every Day!' works because we provide easy-to-implement food solutions that make a difference in the way our licensees and franchisees can operate their businesses, said Hague. Applying the same model to community giving only makes sense and builds value for everyone.

By working together and combining resources and ideas we can all make a difference, continued Hague, what makes it work is having the awareness and importance of meeting the needs of children as a focus and then having the right tools and support to make things happen.
