I’m Shopping at Kroger to Help End #ChildHunger #spon

This Child Hunger End Here post has been brought to you by TheMotherhood. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement. 

child-hunger-ends-here-logoThe thought of a child going to bed hungry breaks my heart. I know what it’s like to be sick and can’t eat, or have to go 24 hours without solid food for medical tests… the hunger pains are excruciating. I cannot imagine having that feeling on a daily or somewhat daily basis.

I also do not see any excuse for a child in the United States to ever go hungry. C’mon, we are the land of plenty. Right?

Wrong.

At least in many cases throughout the U.S. many children to do not know where their next meal is coming from. Sad, but true.

Thank you to ConAgra Foods for taking the initiative and helping to end child hunger. Here’s their message:

More than one in five children, including more than one in four Latino 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.

At ConAgra Foods, we find this unacceptable. That’s why we are partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.

It’s easy to make a difference: Look for the red pushpin on participating product packaging for a code found on these specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.

Child Hunger Ends Here is proud to work with Hunter Hayes and be the presenting sponsor of his “We’re Not Invisible” tour. For every download of Hunter’s new single, “Invisible,” on iTunes, Child Hunger Ends Here will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity, Feeding America, up to 1 million meals.

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.

It truly is so easy to help. On my right sidebar is a place to enter the 8-digit code on specially marked ConAgra Foods.

Now Kroger is offering deals on specially marked ConAgra food products. It really is a win-win. You can save money and help Child Hunger Ends Here at the same time.

Here’s a list of special offers:

I’m taking advantage of these offers. Especially the Ro-Tel, Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, and Manwich.

I make Manwich often for my family. It’s always a hit. As you can see from the above photo.

Please join me in looking for the red push pin on specially marked ConAgra products and then entering the 8-digit code in the widget on my right sidebar and help end child hunger.
