Child Hunger Ends Here | Will You Help?

It’s almost unimaginable to thing that children are going to bed hungry in our society. In fact, nearly 16 million children, enough to fill 8,000 playgrounds are going hungry and being robbed of the promise of childhood. Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. In communities like mine there are food banks, school lunch and backpack programs, and summer food programs. But it’s still not enough and some children fall through the cracks or the need is simply just too great for the programs in place.

My heart breaks just thinking about this and I’m sure yours does too. Can you imagine if it were your child who is a one in five statistic? We need to join forces and support efforts to end child hunger. I have partnered with ConAgra, P&G and The Motherhood for this sponsored post to help spread the word about the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign.

Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign

ConAgra has teamed up with P&G to bring awareness to child hunger through the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. They are working to build a community of people, like you and me, who will work together to make a difference and donate 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. Yes, that’s a lofty goal, but when we work together, great things can happen.

It’s simple to make a difference! When you are at the grocery store, look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America. You can even enter your 8-digit codes via the widget on the right sidebar of this blog.

All codes entered through August 2014 will help feed a hungry child.

Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign

Do you remember last month when Hunter Hayes and his tour sponsor ConAgra Foods teamed up for the Hunter Hayes Road Race? The record breaking goal was to break the record for the for performing in the most cities in a 24 hour period and to donate the most meals ever in 24 hours. Do you want to know how Hunter Hayes did it? You have a chance to ask him just that and more!

Child Hunger Ends Here is giving you the exciting opportunity to “Ask Hunter” a question – and he may answer it personally. Just enter a code at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com for the chance to ask Hunter Hayes a question. Each month through August 2014, Hunter will personally answer one question (using the winner’s name) and post the video to the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook Page.

Children should never have to experience the pain associated with hunger. Will you join me and all the others who have stepped up by taking a few moments of your time to enter codes from participating P&G products? That simple act will trigger a donation for a hungry child.

  5. What a wonderful thing to do! I always donate time and money to end children suffering in its many forms.

  6. I’m going to have to start looking more closely for the codes. I am a big fan of causes such as this. There’s no reason any child should have to go hungry!

  7. That’s great that Hunter Hayes joined in. We donate food to a local food pantry.

  13. What a great cause for P&G and Con Agra to pair up on! I will be sure to keep a lookout of the red pushpin to do my part.

  14. Such a great program this is. I wish more companies tried to make a difference like this.

  15. I love when brands come together for a good cause to change the world! Great job P&G!

  16. This is such a great campaign. It’s so sad to think of small children not having enough to eat. We are very blessed in our country.

  17. I will definitely look for the codes and take the time to enter them. I want to do my part and I love that people who can’t afford to give can still do this and feel like they have contributed to the cause.

  18. What a great program, and good to know! I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for those red pushpins; no kid should go hungry.

  19. I always like to hear companies doing good in their community. We are actually making food today to bring to a homeless shelter.

  20. It’s wonderful when stars donate their time AND money for great causes!

  21. I like that starving children within the United States are being helped with this campaign. I’d definitely help. I often donate food to local food banks in my area.

  22. It’s awesome too see the companies participate in this campaign to end child hunger!

  23. I have been adding codes.

  24. I need to start doing something. It’s so sad that among such affluence, some kids can still go hungry :(

  25. What a great way to help kids who are going hungry. No child should be without food.

  26. I’ll definitely add my P&G codes to help the cause!

  27. This is a great campaign!!

  28. It is so heartbreaking to think that there are children out there without enough food. It is heartening to see people try to change that.

  29. I love this campaign. I think it is so important to give back and show our kids the importance of that as well

  30. We just donated a bunch of food to our local food bank. This is another great way to partner! More companies should do this!

  31. What a great cause. Thanks for this information! This breaks my heart.

  32. We’ve been turning in these codes for about a year now! Love this campaign!

  34. I am so glad they are taking on this cause. Hunger is everywhere. Thank you for posting and raising awareness!

  35. I could definitely do more. Thanks for the reminder to step it up!

  36. We just do food bank donations when we can but this is a great post to remind us we can do this as well. Such a horrible situation to be in …hungry. :(

  37. It’s tough knowing that when school is out, the programs that provide breakfast and free lunch and even food for the weekends ends as well. They need to figure out ways to continue those. Volunteers who can make deliveries or something.

  38. It’s so easy to help end child hunger by shopping for things we already need… I love this campaign!

  39. I love this campaign! There’s so much we do but don’t.

  40. This is such a great campaign!

  42. We’re doing a lot of giving projects this summer. This past weekend, I took each of my three kids shopping with $50 each to buy food for our local food bank. We talked about getting more value for the money (buying store brand vs. brand name) and what shelf-safe foods are healthier to donate. They did a great job!
