The number of children in the U.S. that are going hungry is staggering. Just staggering.
More than one in five children in the U.S., including more than one in four Latino children, may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.
Wow, 8,000 playgrounds full of hungry children, in our own backyards.
It truly is inexcusable to me that here in the United States, the land of the free, the land of the plenty, the land where many of us waste food on a daily basis… we have children hungry.
And 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.
It’s easy for us to help end child hunger. Seriously… EASY!
ConAgra Foods is 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. This is a cause I will gladly support.
Here’s how easy it is:
Look for the red pushpin on specially marked ConAgra foods and P&G products and find the code. For every 8-digit code at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March through August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.
Scroll up a bit, see it now?
Just enter your 8-digit codes right there. Every time you go to the grocery store between now through the end of August look for the red pushpin and after you get home, come and enter your codes in the widget on the right before you put your groceries away.
YOU will be making a difference! I’ll be doing the same thing. Together WE will make a difference!
Grammy-nominated country music artist, Hunter Hayes, has joined the initiative in ending child hunger, too. 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 one million meals.
