ConAgra Foods: Child Hunger Ends Here {How You Can Help!} #ChildHunger

 

 

 

Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 children in the United States don’t know where their next meal is coming from? As a mother, that hurts my heart. The thought of a child that’s just like my son not knowing when he would eat makes me want to jump into action. It could be anyone – take a look around your child’s classroom or even your neighborhood. I’m excited to announce that I am a Blog Ambassador for the ConAgra Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. I can’t wait to help bring more awareness to this issue.

 

  • According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, food insecurity or the inability to access enough food to live active, healthy lives affects more than 16 million children in the United States.
  • Child hunger in our country is a serious problem, but many Americans only associate the issue of hunger with a foreign land. The problem exists here at home and there’s never been a better time to get involved.
    • Children don’t need to be starving or homeless to struggle with hunger. Many children are simply missing a meal or not eating on a regular basis.

 

ConAgra Foods is continuing to work towards ending child hunger by joining forces with Feeding America to engage families across the United States and inspire them to get involved. Feeding America and the ConAgra Foods Foundation have collectively donated more than 275 million pounds of food and invested more than $36 million dollars to combat child hunger since 1993.

 

How You Can Help

Grab your family and go shopping! I headed to the grocery store with my son to search for specially marked ConAgra products that feature a red thumb tack. For each specially marked ConAgra Foods you purchase and register online, you will help buy a meal for a child at your local Feeding America food bank. You’ll also get a download of an original song called “Here’s Hope” performed by Jewel, Owl City or Jay Sean.

You’ll find the following brands participating:

Banquet

Chef Boyardee

Healthy Choice

Hunt’s

Marie Callendar’s

Manwich

Orville Redenbacher

 Peter Pan

Snack Pack

When you’re at the grocery store, make sure to look for the packages with the big “Child Hunger Ends Here” thumb tack.

Once you get home, log on to www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and enter in the 8 digit code found on the back of specially marked packages.

Once you enter in your code, you’ll be able to enter your zip code and see how many codes {and meals!} have been redeemed and donated to Feeding America.

I was able to see how many codes have been redeemed in the St. Louis area.

Then, you can download the song “Here’s Hope” performed by Jewel, Owl City or Jay Sean – your choice! The more codes that you redeem, the more exclusive content you’ll be able to access.

It’s just that easy – make sure to buy the specially marked packages of ConAgra foods and you’re helping to make sure one less child goes to sleep hungry.

    This is a great program. Looking at the list of participating brands, I see several that we buy on a regular basis. I am definitely going to start looking for and entering the codes!

    That is a great program! I love that these companies are finding creative ways to get their messages out there, and an easy way for us to help out. AARP supports fighting against senior’s hunger by advertising on a Nascar car, and they have gotten many donations from having fans call in and donate b/c the number is on the car.

    That is such a neat program! Those are brands that we usually buy too, so I’ll definitely be on the lookout for these specially marked products so that I can help the cause too!
