DETROIT —  Applebee's will hold a one-day fundraiser aimed at alleviating school lunch debt in Michigan communities.

One in five children in Michigan struggle with hunger due partly to the inability to qualify for free/reduced lunches.

Applebee's says it is working to change that statistics through its "Take a Bite Out of School Lunch Debt" fundraiser on Sunday, Oct. 27 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at a handful of locations across the state.

Twenty percent of food sales from the day will be donated to a local school to pay off school lunch debt.
