But we can help end child hunger!
90% of the children who rely on school lunch programs will go hungry over the summer time.
How many of us actually even think about child hunger from day to day? I’ll admit, I’m guilty. It’s something I think about often, but not daily.
Last night we went out to dinner and the food we left on our plates was enough to feed two children, at least. But I wasn’t thinking about that at the time.
And I’m not suggesting that we should spend our whole lives not enjoying what we have because others don’t. (Although what a good world it would be if people did more of that!)
I am asking you to do a few things to help. EAsy things. One of them is as easy as watching a cute little kid on a short video. Every time this video is watched or shared, ConAgra donates money for a meal! Watch, like, or share this video to donate one meal each time.
Hard to believe we can help child hunger by watching a youtube video, but it’s true!
My favorite quote: “Let’s feed some kids, yo!”
If you have a seven year old son like I do, just bring up this video. It’s guaranteed to be repeated 50-100 times!
This isn’t the only way that ConAgra Foods is helping to end child hunger. If you buy their foods (which most of us with kids do) there are codes on the products. Entering those codes will help donate more meals.
Simple ways to help, without spending any extra money or giving up much of your personal time. It’s a win-win situation!
I snagged some other tips off of the ConAgra site.

I saw an announcement that our school district is continuing the backpack program over the summer. That is fantastic. It doesn’t solve the problem for all children, but at least those in some of the worst situations will be eating something…
