We Fight Hunger with Glee's Mark Salling!2:53 PM
To launch this next phase of campaigning, we went to L.A. to work at the regional food bank. We sorted tomatoes, worked up a sweat, and had a surprisingly good time.
|That's some box of tomatoes!|
|Picking the good ones.|
|Lamar, Steff, and I at work.|
|Dan, Mary, Piera, and Caryn with their box of tomatoes.|
The next day, we hit the streets of Hollywood for a star-studded event, headlined by Glee's Mark Salling. We packed up groceries bags for the food bank and shared the stats surrounding the number of kids that don't know where their next meal is coming from. (In LA county, that was over 28% -- can you believe it?)

|Finally, our turn with Mark!|
Wanna Help? You don't need to fly to Hollywood to team up with schools in your area for the fight against hunger. Just keep buying the ConAgra products you already buy (including Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Manwich, Orville Redenbacher’s, Peter Pan and Snack Pack) and clip the UPC's to turn in to your school. ConAgra will provide one meal to a child in need for every UPC saved!* To find a participating school near you, visit SchoolsFightHunger.org.
*For every UPC collected by schools through 12/31/11, 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 million meals for codes received by 1/12/12. ConAgra Foods will help provide up to 5 million meals to Feeding America during the 2011-12 school year (9/1/11-5/31/12). Valid in U.S. only. $1 donated = 8 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local food banks.
