I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
Both personally and as a Mom, I love to get involved and help to teach my kids how to pay it forward whenever possible. When I heard that Champions for Kids had partnered with Kraft and Tyson Foods to help fight the challenge of childhood hunger with their Hunger Heroes program, I knew I had to get involved. Starting on August 1st, shoppers are able to purchase certain products from Kraft and Tyson Foods at Sam’s Clubs nationwide to help feed a hungry child.
According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, 22% of all the world’s children grow up in a family that has an income below the poverty level. That is more than 16 million children! That is a mind blowing number! Many of these families struggle every day to give their children meals that are rich in proteins and nutritious for their children. With the Hunger Heroes partnership, families can obtain the help they need to have access to food that is consistent. And here’s some really great news: For the TWO states that have the highest number of pledges, each one will receive a large truckload of meals that are donated by Tyson Foods company. How awesome is that for the recipients and VERY cool that Tyson Foods is willing to help out like that!
Connecting with other Hunger Heroes is easy thanks to social networking! Using #HungerHeroes on social pages, anyone can easily connect with other heroes out there wanting to stamp out hunger. Both Kraft Food and Tyson Foods have been working hard to do this! For more than a decade, Tyson Foods has actively fought in the battle against hunger. They have donated as much as 96 million pounds of protein since the year 2000.Kraft, one of the biggest consumer packaged beverage and food company in North America, have, since 1997, been dedicated to the fight over hunger. More than 1 billion servings of food have been offered by Kraft to help those in need eat.
The campaign “Be a Hunger Hero” will run through August 31st in Sam’s Club stores. This is an incredible program, and I for one am ready to get out there and do what I can to help the kids not only of our community but anywhere there is a family who is struggling to eat.
Champions for Kids makes it simple to give children in local communities the resources they need to thrive. Helping others does not have to come in large doses. Champions for Kids seeks to ignite generational change by fostering a ‘habit of giving’ among youth and parents in America.
The goals of Champions for Kids are simple, yet profound, and drive their efforts to “mobilize millions” to help children — All children should have:
- Someone who cares;
- a Place to belong;
- Hope for tomorrow and,
- provisions for their journey.
Throughout the month of August, Champions for Kids, Tyson Foods, and KRAFT Foods can help you “Be a Hunger Hero” at Sam’s Club by purchasing any of these products at Sam’s Club, Tyson® Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. bag, KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner 7.25 oz., 12 pack or CAPRI SUN Juice Drink Variety Pack – 40 pouches, and help feed* a child in need.
