A partnership between Miku Sushi restaurant on Greenwich Avenue and Kids in Crisis launches this weekend with a special lunch menu to benefit the Cos Cob based agency.

Kids in Crisis provides emergency shelter, crisis counseling, and community education programs for children of all ages and families facing crisis.

Beginning Saturday, Miku Sushi lunch customers will be the first to try select items from a special menu that was developed in partnership with Kids In Crisis.

The promotional menu includes is two sushi rolls and one cooked dish.

It will be available for lunch, dinner, and takeout during the entire month of February.

Proceeds from these three items will benefit the non-profit dedicated to ensuring the well-being of children through vital 24-hour services.

“Many of our regular customers are very involved in this community and are passionate about giving to those in need,” said K Dong of Miku Sushi. “Since we opened last April, we’ve been very busy so I feel a responsibility to do more to support local causes. Through this process, we’ll be able to make a stronger impact in our new community and I hope we’ll be successful in raising awareness and funds for our non-profit partners.”

One of the three items designed for this partnership is the “24-hour Roll” which is a sushi roll inspired by the Kids In Crisis 24-hour Helpline (203-661-1911).

The line is available for anyone who needs help or is not sure where to turn.

“Whether you’re a child, parent, relative, teacher, therapist, doctor, neighbor, friend, or anyone else concerned about the welfare of a child, any time of the day or night, there is always a counselor on the end of the phone,” said Shari Shapiro, Kids In Crisis Executive Director, adding, “These trained Crisis Counselors are available to provide immediate help and assess services needed to address and work through any situation.”
