Do you know there are 10 million hungry children; nearly half of eligible children do not receive free or reduced price school breakfast and that 3 out of 5 K-8 public school teachers report regularly seeing students coming to school hungry? It’s a heartbreaking reality!
The“Hunger Is” campaign from September 1st through September 30th, 2016 has been established to help childhood hunger efforts in America. This program is designed to bring awareness and funds to improve healthy outcomes for hungry children and their families; specifically focusing on expanding breakfast programs.
It’s so easy:
- Purchase participating items (THAT HAVE THE DISCLAIMER – *purchase of this item in September 2016 will trigger at least $0.10 donation up to $1 million) – Look for tags on participating items in store
- Donate at the register – shoppers can add a $1, $3, or $5, or any $ amount to their purchase. All you need to do is shop for items which are probably already in your basket, which can help raise funds towards this cause – for every unit sold in September 2016, $0.10 goes back to their local market, up to $1M nationally!
- The stores are committed to this cause in every region. Every donation will be donated back to the local market through their 501(c )3 Foundation.
Here is how we helped:
So excited to share that my local ACME in Turnersville, NJ is participating in the Hunger Is campaign! Check them out and help fight childhood hunger! We shopped for some of the items on the list of participating brands and donated at the end:
Who doesn’t like pumpkin spice oatmeal???
We are huge oatmeal fans, so we stocked up, after all, fall is right around the corner!
I use soups on casseroles and other dishes! It is my cold night dinner when we’re too busy to cook or when we need the comfort that a warm bowl of soup brings!
You know I’m a coffee lover, Peets is one of my favorite brands!
My son eats Nutella with just about anything! That is always on my grocery list!
And we donated!
Do you see how easy it was for me to just pick up items I already buy and donate at the end?
Join me and millions in September to help fight childhood hunger with the Hunger Is campaign!
