For the last 2 months, I have enjoyed spreading the word about ConAgra Foods Child Hunger Ends Here program.
The statistics are staggering.
16 million children face child hunger in America. More than 1 in 5 kids in the United States don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Child Hunger is an everyday struggle.
Luckily, since 1993 ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation have donated more than $36 million and 275 million pounds of food to Feeding America. The five-year $10 million pledge from the ConAgra Foods Foundation is the largest donation ever made to Feeding America to specifically help fight Child Hunger.
As of today, 2.8 million meals have been donated through the Child Hunger Ends Here website. Their goal is 5 million meals and I think they can accomplish that. There’s so much you can do to get involved with your family to help end child hunger.

I appreciate ConAgra Foods so much on what they are doing to spread the word on this real issue in the United States. As a mother, it breaks my heart to think of children going without a meal. Do what you can to help in your local community and make it fun to get your children involved also! We love picking up extra items at the grocery store (just add $5 to your grocery bill and you can buy lots of canned goods and boxed spaghetti) to donate to our local food bank.
