Child Hunger Ends Here and Now! #Giveaway
July 2nd, 2013
The idea that there are children in this country that go hungry every day just saddens me. Shockingly this silent epidemic affects nearly 17 million children suffer from food insecurity. That’s why I’m thrilled to be supporting ConAgra Foods and their Child Hunger Ends Here campaign to help end the issue of child hunger in America. Entering their fourth year of the campaign, this year they’re working with top musical artists, moms, kids and employees to donate up to 3 million meals to their longstanding partner, Feeding America.
I love that they’ve made it so easy to make an impact. By entering codes found on participating packages of ConAgra Foods products into the widget below, you will donate one meal. Look for the red pushpin next time you’re grocery shopping and purchase specifically marked packages of 19 select ConAgra Foods brands. For every code entered by 8/31/13, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
Even more fun, you can also enter your zip code to submit your local Feeding America food bank into a competition for an 80,000-meal donation. At the end of the campaign, ten food banks in the zip codes with the most entries will receive the additional donation.
What: During the school year, 21.5 million children rely on free or reduced-price meals to help them keep from going hungry. But when school is out, only 2.3 million children participate in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This means there are millions of children at an increased risk of hunger during the summer.
The Motherhood has been working with ConAgra Foods and a wonderful team of 30 mom bloggers since March to help end child hunger in America – all through Child Hunger Ends Here, a campaign to spread awareness and encourage action. Join us – and pop star Carly Rae Jepsen – for a meaningful Twitter party to talk about the campaign, results to date, and how you can continue to help!
Where:We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #ChildHunger hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this Twtvite: http://twtvite.com/ChildHunger2
Prizes:Two prizes will be awarded during the party to participants who respond correctly to trivia questions. Each winner will receive a guitar autographed by pop star Cody Simpson.
