Did you know that here in America, 1 in 5 children face hunger? That is 16 million children! That’s why ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation are harnessing the power of youth to tackle this issue in neighborhoods across the country. I’m working with Conagra Foods Foundation and The Motherhood to help fight hunger together! The food pantries are in such need and we CAN make a difference!
This week, I took my 4 kiddos out and we purchased $50 worth of Conagra Foods to donate to our favorite local food donation center, Food 2 Kids Athens. We were able to donate over 25 lbs of food to help other kids! My kids took time picking out some great Conagra Foods in their favorite flavors, knowing that other kids would love those flavors as well.
While we were donating, Food 2 Kids generously gave us a tour and showed how they bag up the foods. The way this program works is that they make bags of food to send home with children from school so that way they have food to eat on the weekends. My kids were floored that some kids in our local community do not have food to eat on the weekend. Even more shocking was the number of how many kids they feed! I should have written it down, but I was so surprised at the number that I forgot!
One easy way to get involved is to look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods products. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2015, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, up to 3 million meals. That will truly make a difference!
