When I head to the grocery store, I HAVE to have a list. If I don’t, then I will tend to stray over my budget and get items that we just don’t need. So every week, I sit down on my computer and log on to Pinterest to help me with my weekly menu planning. One of my favorite pinners to check out on Pinterest for meal inspiration is Land O’ Lakes! Their Pinterest account is full of delicious meals like Buffalo Chicken Pizza or Slow Cooker Reuben Sliders. They have meal ideas for everything from cupcake recipes to a board just dedicated to grilled cheese sandwiches!
As I’m doing my menu planning for my family of five, it’s hard to believe that one in six people are living at risk of hunger in America. Luckily, there is hope and a way to help! Land O’Lakes has partnered with Feeding America® to kick off a Pin a Meal, Give a Meal campaign and it couldn’t be easier to help feed a family in need.
When you help feed a family, you’re doing more than just putting food on the table. You’re helping them live full and active lives, do better at work and at school, and build better futures. I know that if I skip breakfast, I’m not as productive that morning. The same goes for my son if he skips a meal, he can’t concentrate and doesn’t have a good day. But YOU can help! Now through May 31, the Land O’Lakes Foundation will donate $1* to Feeding America® for every pin or re-pin of a Land O’Lakes recipe. The $1 helps provide 9 meals* secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks. The Land O’Lakes Foundation guarantees a minimum of 2.7 million meals* (monetary equivalent of $300,000.00) to Feeding America and member food banks from March 28th through May 31st, 2014.
If you’re like me, you’re already on Pinterest several times a day. So I love the fact that I can get easy meal ideas and help us fight hunger at the same time. All you have to do is pin or re-pin any Land O’Lakes recipe and Land O’Lakes will donate 9 meals to Feeding America for every pin.
