This post is brought to you by ConAgra Foods in participation in the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
When I hear about kids going hungry I’m instantly overcome with sorrow. I cannot imagine one of my little ones starving. Just think of the times you hear your child say “Momma, I’m hungry” and now imagine not being able to feed them or provide them with the nutrients they need. It’s heartbreaking isn’t it?
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.
Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.
This is why ConAgra Foods teamed up with Child Hunger Ends Here to find a solution. With their partnership to P&G they are building a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. That is a lot of little bellies to fill!
How can you make a difference and join the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign?
It’s easy! Search your favorite household products for the red pushpin. You can find a list of participating product packaging online.
On many of the ConAgra Foods and P&G products you can find an 8-digit code that will trigger donations. You simply find the code, visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and enter the code so a portion of your purchase goes back to your community – to end childhood hunger! For each 8-digit code entered from now-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America. That is one meal for each product your purchase that has the red pushpin on it.
Join the Community and Get Involved. One of the easiest ways to learn how to get involved is to join the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook community at Facebook.com/ChildHungerEndsHere or follow the news on Twitter and Instagram at @ChildHungerEnds.
