Walmart Joins the Fight Against Hunger

You already know how crazy I get about addressing the issue of hunger in kids.  There's really no need for it, if you ask me.  That's why I will use the blog at any chance to do the things I can to attack the problem head on.

As both a ConAgra Child Hunger Ends Here Ambassador and a Walmart Mom, I was pleased to find both roles combine with Walmart's recent hunger initiatives. As part of their new Fighting Hunger Together Facebook App, you can see all the different ways a typical Walmart customer can feed a child in need:

1) Vote.  Use the app to locate the community near you and cast your vote to get them into the top for the chance to receive their portion of $2 million in food assistance from Walmart. (Hurry! Voting ends April 30th!)

2) Buy products you and your family enjoy every day, keeping in mind that your purchase can help a child in need.  ConAgra is giving a meal for each code entered from specially-marked packages via the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.  General Mills is doing so via their Outnumber Hunger campaign.

3) Share your breakfast.  Kellogg's is giving a donation for each person who shares what they had for breakfast on the Kellogg's Facebook page!

4) JingIt.  Kraft will be donating up to one million meals for those to engage with this site!

We'll be checking in soon with an update on how my family is getting involved.  Until then, I would love to hear comments on which of the four methods you will be helping!
