Yesterday, our pals at Moms Fight Hunger kicked off a month long initiative to raise awareness and inspire others through action. We’re pretty proud of what they’re doing and wanted to share a few simple ways you and your family can make a BIG difference this year:
It might seem silly that something as simple as wearing the color orange could be a way to make a difference, but it’s not. Orange is the color for Hunger Action and by wearing it you are showing your support. Take it one step farther by snapping a photo of you and/or your kids and/or your pets going orange and post them on Instagram with the hashtag #MomsFightHunger #GoOrange. We’ll add you to this inspiring slideshow.
Jenn’s family is always doing something to serve others. I am continually inspired by all she does, this month her family is collecting their spare change to donate. A little goes a long way, at most Food Banks, $1 = 10 meals or more for a family in need. How many meals can you gift this month with your pocket change?
Thousands of restaurants around the country are doing their part to support No Kid Hungry by offering discounts and incentives for eating at their establishments. A portion of the cost of your meal (or in some cases a donation) goes straight to No Kid Hungry to help with school meal programs. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how many and what types of restaurants are taking part this year. Find a restaurant near you.
Setting up a food drive in your neighborhood, school, church or even your local library is an excellent way to get your kids involved and making a difference. Helen of Curly birds has a great write up on how you can host your own food drive.
