Thanksgiving Day means a table food of delicacies for many of us, but not for all. Did you know that 17.2 million (1:7) households in America were living in hunger in 2010? Astonishing! It makes your prayers of thanks more meaningful as you recognize how blessed you are to have a turkey and its fixings this Thursday and the other days of the year.
‘Tis the season for Turkeys and football! We hit the parking lots of our favorite college or Pro teams and cook up some BBQ snacks while enjoying great time with friends and fellow fans! Kraft Foods’ has tapped into this love of the game and awareness of the growing number of Americans going hungry with their Huddle to Fight Hunger campaign. This campaign launched in 2010, has already brought 21 million meals to those in need through the support of football fans and other members of the community. These fans and community members are on a mission to donate the monetary equivalent of 25 million meals to Feeding America. Are you ready to join their team?
By liking the Facebook page and playing the game you will donate one meal to Feeding America! Each online meal donation will be put toward reaching the 2011 campaign goal! The game also encourages you to donate your meal directly to a local community food bank; all you have to do is enter your zip code.
As a very special THANK YOU for joining the huddle, Kraft Foods is offering Smarty Pants Mama readers the opportunity to win a Huddle to Fight Hunger Tailgate kit!
