I instantly get sad when I hear about any child (or person) going hungry. The thought of someone having to starve when others look at food as readily available makes me think of ways to help.
More than one in five children in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.
So I’ve found a way to make a difference, simply by going to the grocery store and shopping for the products you’re probably already buying. Each of us can participate in the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign by shopping at H-E-B for ConAgra Foods and P&G products with 8-digit codes on the package (they’re easy to spot because you’ll see a red pushpin on the front!)
You simply take the code, visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and enter it on the site. A portion of your purchase will go back to your community, to end child hunger! With each 8-digit code entered from now-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America. That’s one meal for each product you purchase with the red pushpin on it.
ConAgra Foods has partnered with P&G to make a big difference by donating up to 7 million meals – but they need your participation to make it happen! And I’ve found some special deals to help you stock-up and save on those items, which means you’ll get more codes to help end Child Hunger!
