Although I've partnered with The Motherhood to share this about ConAgra's Child Hunger Ends Here program, I'm extremely passionate about this topic, thus, all opinions expressed are my own. No one is the boss of me!
My kids love to eat. All four of them! I can't imagine them being able to function through their day without knowing when or how their next meal will get to them. So, you'll understand just how astonishing it was for me to learn that 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, which equates to a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds. And if you as me, it's 16 million too many.
How does child hunger affect children? Well, children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger are more at risk of suffering serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. The saddest truth about child hunger is that it deprives them of a childhood they deserve and need and impacts their ability to play, grown, and learn.
I'm sure you're asking the question we ALL are -- how can I help?! I'm pleased to share with you that 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 exciting news that will truly make an impact on the world!
You're going to love how easy it is to make a difference as part of this program! It's as easy as pie:
Look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products, like this Banquet frozen food:
Visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to enter your codes from each product. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.
"Ask Hunter" Facebook Promotion
Child Hunger Ends Here is proud to work with Grammy-nominated country music artist Hunter Hayes and be the presenting sponsor of his “We’re Not Invisible” tour. 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 1 million meals.
What's even MORE exciting is that Child Hunger Ends Here is giving you the opportunity to “Ask Hunter” a question—and he may answer it personally!
Just enter a code on www.childhungerendshere.com for the chance to ask Hunter Hayes a question. Each month through August 2014, Hunter will personally answer one question (using the winner’s name!) and post the video to the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook page.
Child Hunger Ends Here will share some suggestions for great questions for Hunter. In July, be thinking about what you want to hear from Hunter about being a role model. Perhaps you want to know the best thing about being a role model? Or the hardest thing? Or maybe how Hunter hopes to leave a mark on the world? Use your imagination!
Rules for this special promotion are as follows:
- Must be 14 or older
- One prize/question per user
