Meijer and ConAgra Foods-Child Hunger Ends Here

I recently learned that more than one in five children, including more than one in four Latino children, in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.

Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.

As a Mom, I have a hard time reading statistics like this because I cannot fathom living this truth.  Sure, there have been times, more often than I'd like, that I haven't been able to purchase items that we wanted at the grocery store because we didn't have the extra money at the time but to not provide any food for my child; that would break me.

The people at ConAgra food finds Childhood hunger unacceptable {Go ConAgra!} and that is why they partnered 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.

What can you do to help?!  Look for these ConAgra and P&G brands at your local store. 
       Look for the red pushpin on participating product packaging for a code found on these specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products. For each 8-digit code entered at from March-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.

·       Join the Community and Get Involved. One of the easiest ways to learn how to get involved is to join the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook community at or follow the news on Twitter and Instagram at @ChildHungerEnds.

·       Community Food Donations. ConAgra Foods is donating 50,000 meals to community food banks on behalf of Meijer, in appreciation for their fantastic partnership to end child hunger!

     Speaking of Meijer, right now they have some great MPerks deals to help you save when purchasing products to help End Child Hunger.

Which products do you purchase that will help Meijer and ConAgra end Child Hunger? We buy Mueller's pasta, Charmin and Bounty.  Who can turn down Hunts tomatoes when    they're on sale either?
