It’s a sobering thought to realize that nearly 50 million Americans don't know where their next meal will come from. Forget about myself, as a parent I cannot imagine the pain of not only being hungry myself, but knowing my children are hungry as well. Fortunately there are a few places these families can turn, but most of these places require the support of the community, donations, and volunteers. Food banks can be found it almost every neighborhood, but cannot function and feed those in need without donations.
Help Outnumber Hunger!
General Mills has teamed up with Feeding America®, Big Machine Label Group, and Target to Outnumber Hunger in local communities. And they’ve made it easy for you and me to help!
When you Purchase specially marked General Mills products and enter codes from these packages, each code you enter will help Feeding America® secure 5 MEALS for your local food bank. These codes can be found on loads of your favorite brands like, Pillsbury, Yoplait, Progresso, Cheerios and more. For every black code you enter by January 31, 2015, 55.5 cents will be donated to Feeding America®, which is actually enough to secure 5 meals! Donations have already topped $600,000 and an additional $600,000 will be donated based on online code entry and other consumer actions. For more information, to enter a code, or to learn additional ways you can help visit OutnumberHunger.com
Target has also stepped up to support the cause and are offering a complimentary Outnumber Hunger Now CD to customers who purchase 5 select Outnumber Hunger products.*
