My kids are growing up with regular meals, snacks and the resources to go to bed each night with a full stomach. Unfortunately, not all children in our community have that privilege. While school is in session, at least all kids have the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at school. But there will be some children who spend the summer months wishing school was back in session so they could have healthy meals. We have the opportunity to help outnumber hunger by doing several easy things so all kids in our community can go to sleep with a full stomach.
Working Together to Outnumber Hunger
That’s more than 49 million people – and 13 million families – across the U.S.
Right now is the perfect time to look through your cabinets and find some food that you can spare. Maybe you can pick up some extra snack bars, pudding packs and beef jerky to donate to the school resource center or local food pantry. It doesn’t cost alot of money to help provide some extra food to the people who are planning to feed the kids during the summer months.
You can also help outnumber hunger by teaming up with General Mills, Feeding America®, Big Machine Label Group, and Target to Outnumber Hunger in local communities.
