Enter Codes for the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign! #childhunger

hunger_logo.ashxSometimes I speak the words, “have you done nothing but eat all day?” to my children when they run back and forth to the kitchen on the weekends.  We provide meals and snacks to them all day, everyday, it’s shocking how much they continue to rummage the cupboards and fridge for just one more bite.  My middle child is 12 and growing like a weed, so it seems we’re grocery shopping every other day to keep up to his eating habits alone.   That being said, I often take for granted the fact that this food is available to my children all the time, when they want it.  That is sadly not the case for 20% of the children in this country. Untitled-1Child hunger is an epidemic today, in the United States, and because it’s invisible it’s one that goes unnoticed.  Child hunger is not an issue of poverty. With more than 1 in 5 children suffering from food insecurity – that’snearly 17 million children – we know that hungry kids are in our schools, our neighborhoods and even right next door. I am partnering with ConAgra Foods and the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign!  We want to end hunger in America and help donate up to 3 million meals to Feeding America and it’s really so easy to join us!  Celebrity support for Child Hunger Ends Here has been huge, musicians like Cody Simpson, Amber Riley, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Tori Kelly have banded together to help us with this campaign.  Check out  “Fill a Heart” by Cody Simpson and Amber Riley - http://www.childhungerendshere.com/voicesForHope.html. For anybody who wants to make an immediate impact, use the codes found on participating packages of ConAgra Foods products, look for that big red pushpin on the package. Many products including: Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Marie Callendar’s, Manwich, Orville Redenbacher, Peter Pan, Snack Pack are some you probably already have in your cabinet or buy on a regular basis!

Enter one code online, www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to donate one meal.  It’s that simple!

• You can participate by looking for the red pushpin in grocery stores and purchasing specifically marked packages of 19 select ConAgra Foods brands. • Then, by visiting www.facebook.com/ChildHungerEndsHere or www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com, you can enter the eight-digit code found on the package. • For every code entered by 8/31/13, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. • You can also enter your zip code to submit your local Feeding America food bank into a competition for an 80,000-meal donation. – At the end of the campaign, ten food banks in the zip codes with the most entries will receive the additional donation. Join us, won’t you? I am a blog ambassador for Child Hunger Ends Here, all opinions are my own!

    it’s a blessing to be able to help a child in need because sometimes people will just throw away food not thinking if there was a hungry child. that hungry child wouldn’t bother eating all of their food so we need to start thinking about other kids in the world other than ourselves because that hungry child would try his/her best to just find a little grain of rice we need to start thinking about others starting now.GOD BLESS YOU ALL

    My code is 23724085 but could not find where to write in this page. Ending child hunger in the US and the world is a dire necessity. Much money is spend on armaments and defense, the budget should be more protective of the weak.

    My code is 72110451. I could not figure out how to enter my code either. It used to be so easy. however, my dog, Sarah Rose, gets Peter Pan peanut butter every morning to help with her dry skin. She is proud to help a child who is hungry because she loves all children!!!! :)

    I’ve been trying to enter the codes that I have but I can’t find anyplace to enter it. Did the program end on 8-31-13 or did it just change? It seems I’m not the only one who is looking for a place to continue adding codes. If anyone can find where we could continue to add these codes that would be awesome.

    Brenda Brenda October 23, 2013 2:57 pm I have been entering these codes for months not a problem now lately the site that usually comes up so you can enter them for some odd reason is not coming up I can’t type in these codes. it’s getting me upset because I want to help feed the children and I can’t enter the codes. it seems like a lot of us want to help and we can’t what happened to this great opportunity? if theres another site please let us know so we can contine helping.

  6. Chloe Nichols says

    Please give me the website where I can enter a code that I took from a frozen pie box. (Marie Callender) There are so many websites–how to choose?

  7. Elaine says

    The site says it runs until Sept, 31, 2013

    Maybe they can update their site so we all can enter our codes!
