As many of you read in our post a while back, ConAgra Foods®, in partnership with Feeding America®, is asking us to take part in a new initiative to fight child hunger with their “Child Hunger Ends Here” campaign.* Child Hunger Ends Here brings together some of ConAgra Foods’ best known brands as part of the largest cause-marketing program in the company’s history.
So far ConAgra Foods® has donated more than 1 million meals thanks to all of you who’ve entered their product codes online. Check out this awesome photo gallery of everyone who has helped fight child hunger on ConAgra’s facebook page. We’re hoping Hollywood Mom Blog readers will continue to visit the grocery store this summer, purchase ConAgra Foods products (including Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Egg Beaters, Healthy Choice, Hebrew National, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Orville Redenbacher’s, PAM, Peter Pan, Reddi-whip) and enter codes all the way up until the August 31 redemption deadline. Together we can make sure as many meals are donated as possible!
Please Spread the word: ConAgra Foods® will continue to honor and donate meals for one meal for every product code entered at childhungerendshere.com through August 31, 2001, up to 2.5 million meals.
“ConAgra Foods® is a longtime, committed partner of Feeding America and we are incredibly grateful for the ongoing dedication to fighting domestic child hunger,” said Vicki Escarra, President and CEO of Feeding America. “With one in four children across the nation struggling with hunger, we are in crisis right now. No American should go hungry, and we thank ConAgra Foods® for joining us in that belief and for raising awareness and support for Feeding America.”
