"When you feed a child you feed their future."
Currently, 1 in 5 children in America live in a household without regular access to adequate food. Hunger Is is an organization that works to eradicate this problem. It helps make breakfasts available to children all across America.
I couldn't be more excited to share this simple way to help feed children in need and support Hunger Is. All you need to do is to visit your local Safeway during the month of September. Here's what mine looks like in Menlo Park, CA.
Next, look for Hunger Is signs like this, and purchase participating items*. For each participating item, Safeway will donate at least $0.10 to Hunger Is. Talk about quick and easy! Here are a bunch of items I bought.
So many of the participating brands are brands my family loves: Pete's Coffee, Pepperidge Farm, Earthbound Farm, Campbell's Soup, Lipton, Morningstar Farms, and O Organic.
But my favorite participating item was this little gem... Magnum Ice Cream Double Peanut Butter Ice Cream snacks. I'd never tried them before. And boy, were they delicious and decadent!
Another easy way to help Hunger Is is to donate at the register. You can add a $1, $3, $5, or any $ amount to your purchase. Look for a sign like this when you check out.
Because our family has enough food on our table (and sometimes too much), it's too to easy to forget about the people that don't, especially children.
We assume we'll of course have a nice breakfast before we head out to start our day each morning. Supporting Hunger Is makes that possible for kids whose families might not have that luxury.
Shopping at Safeway is such an great way to ease the burden for another. And isn't that what we're put on this planet to do?
So head to your local Safeway, splurge on some Magnum Ice Cream (you'll thank me), and know that in addition to making your belly happy, you'll be making someone else's belly happy, too.
* Disclaimer: purchase of this item in September 2016 will trigger at least $0.10 donation up to $1 million.
