ConAgra Foods Make Your Mark On Hunger
Did you know that 16 million kids in America are not getting the food they need. That’s why ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation are harnessing the power of youth to tackle this issue in neighborhoods across the country.
On Wednesday, me and my kids went shopping and bought some non-perishable food for our local food bank. I called the local food bank beforehand to get an idea of what they needed the most. They told me canned meats is what they needed the most. So, we went to the store and purchased a big assortment of canned meats.
It was good for my kids to go shopping for people less fortunate than us. We had a good conversation about it in the car on the way to the food bank. When we arrived at the food bank, there were many people hanging out and eating. My kids were able to see first hand, the people who needed the food.
I talked to the ladies at the food bank and told them that we will be donating, from now on, on a regular basis. It made my kids feel really good about themselves, being able to help people have food. They liked going into the Salvation Army and bringing the nice workers the food we had bought! It is an experience every child should have.
For more than 20 years, ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation have been committed to fighting child hunger in America, donating food and investing in partnerships to find solutions that are within reach and I think that is just wonderful!
One simple way to get involved is to look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods products. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2015, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, up to 3 million meals!!
