Join General Mills & Target In Outnumbering Hunger! #OutnumberHunger #PlatefullCoOp #spon

Earlier this week I talked out the Zumba party that we attended over the weekend that was for helping to raise canned goods for our local food bank. The food bank representative was very appreciative of the support because they are currently serving over 500 families with the food donations. 500 families alone in my community! It always baffles me that we live in one of the most privileged countries in the world, yet there are so many who go hungry every day.

My mom was a single mother of 4. She often worked 2 jobs to support us, but sometimes her paychecks just weren't enough. I remember being on the receiving end of those donations from our food panty a few times throughout my childhood, so I personally know how the families benefit from the generosity of people helping to keep the food pantries stocked.

Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans struggles with hunger? That's more than 49 million people- and 13 million families - across the U.S.A.

That’s why General Mills has teamed up with Feeding America®, Big Machine Label Group, and Target to Outnumber Hunger in local communities.

  22. Excellent initiative. We think of developing countries when we think of hunger, not our neighborhoods. That needs to change. Thanks for spreading awareness!

  23. This is a very simple way for people to help each other by buying from a brand they probably already use. It's sad that people go hungry here--in a country that has plenty to share with each other. Raising awareness of programs like this one can make a difference. Thanks for sharing.
