Child Hunger Ends Here

Last month, I introduced my partnership with the Child Hunger Ends Here program.  The statistics are truly eye-opening:

Nearly 16 million children in the U.S. live in food insecure households and do have enough food to fuel the promise of an active and healthy childhood. 

As a mother, it’s unbearable to fathom children going hungry and not have their basic needs met.  This ambassadorship is one that I’m honored to be a part of as Con Agra Foods and P&G continue to build a community of individuals helping to make a significant difference by donating up to 7 million meals to the Child Hunger Ends Here program this year.

In full disclosure, I’m not a fan of country music, but I am a massive fan of musicians lending their powerful voice to do great good.  Grammy nominated country musician Hunter Hayes is using his platform to spread awareness of the prevalence of food insecurity among children, and dedicated his song “invisible” to the child hunger movement.

To help, simply look for the red push-pin on specially marked Con Agra Foods and P&G products and enter each 8 digit code at www.childhungerendshere.com up until August – to have the monetary equivalent of one meal donated to feeding America, and have a chance to ask Hunter a question. Every month Hunter will answer one question (including the person’s name) on video, on the Child Hunger Ends Here facebook page.

Remember to look for the signature red push pin and join the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook community.  Also follow their mission of ending child hunger on Twitter, Instagram, and under the hashtag #childhunger. Additionally, please fill out this quick reader survey to help ConAgra Foods and The Child Hunger Ends Here campaign gauge awareness.

Thank you for your support!

A Call To Action: Child Hunger Ends Here

Just a few weeks ago during the Polar Vortex single-digit freeze, I gratefully schlepped my kiddos to school in inclement weather upon learning about the disproportionate amount of NYC students that would go without a meal if the school systems were closed.  On a national level, more than one in five children (and more than one in four Latino children), may not know where their next meal is coming from.  The prevalence of food insecurity among U.S. children is profound and the numbers are truly eye-opening.  Nearly 16 million children do not have enough food to fuel the promise of an active, healthy childhood. 

That’s equivalent to 8,000 playgrounds full of food insecure children.

I couldn’t be more honored to be a Child Hunger Ends Here Ambassador and lend a voice to sharing simple ways to help end child hunger.  Through a partnership with ConAgra Foods and P&G up to seven million meals will be donated via the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
