I wanted to update you with more information on the Childhood Hunger Ends Here campaign with Feeding America and ConAgra Foods. As a blogger correspondent for this campaign, I will be providing additional information throughout.
I recently posted about the hungry children in America, and how you can help. If you missed that post, I hope you will read it. Together we can make a difference!
TELEVISION SPECIAL THIS SATURDAY!
Another way to help:
Watch the television special – On March 19 in select markets (markets include Chicago, Dallas, Hartford, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Omaha, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.), you can watch “Child Hunger Ends Here: A Special Report,” a 30-minute special hosted by Al Roker with Natalie Morales, which will premiere on NBC highlighting the personal stories of families struggling with hunger and showcasing how Americans can work together to tackle this issue. Check local listings for viewing times. During the special, viewers can also participate in an online event that will shed additional light on the child hunger issue.
Follow #ChildHungerEndsHere on Twitter during the broadcast, and you can ask questions from an expert panel, as well as learn about ways to get involved.
Please help me spread the word! You can get more information on the child hunger issue by following ConAgra Foods on Facebook and Twitter. When you become a fan of ConAgra on Facebook, you can see how your donations are making a difference and share your own photos and stories. You can also follow the issue and get the latest information on Twitter @ConAgraFoods.
I am counting on you – my friends and readers – to help however you can. There are so many ways, and it really is easy. If you already buy the above-mentioned brands at the store, please keep an eye on the specially marked packages – look for the red push pin, and remember to enter those codes online when you get home! You will find these products in your store from March through May, and codes can be entered through August. (When you activate your purchase(s) online at www.childhungerendshere.com and enter an eight digit code, a monetary donation will be made enabling one meal to be secured by Feeding America on behalf of local food banks, up to a maximum of 2.5 million meals for codes entered through 8/31/11.)
To recap – you can do one or all: Shop, text, watch the television special this Saturday.
Remember when you shop, to keep an eye out for the red push pin, and these brands:
