Did you know that right here in America there are 16 million children struggling with hunger? That’s the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined!! If you’ve done any traveling you know that’s a lot of people and hunger affects many families right in communities all across this country.
Hunger’s youngest victims are often invisible in the United States, but the reality is this issue is really close to home, and could impact your own neighbor or even your child’s best friend. That’s why Unilever Project Sunlight is rallying people across the country to “Share A Meal” to help fight child hunger in America.
Unilever’s Project Sunlight offers our family an easy resource and shows us how we can easily give back.
WAYS TO SHARE A MEAL
The small act of sharing a meal could have a big impact on a family in need. Below you will find a variety of small actionable ways to Share A Meal and help fight child hunger here in the U.S.
- Share A Meal Potluck – Host neighboring families for a dinner and invite a family in need to join
- Get Your Community Involved – Partner with a local community organization to host community potluck in your area
- Local Food Drives – Organize your very own food drive or utilize the
- Feeding America online Food Bank Locator tool to get in touch with a local food and volunteer at a food drive
- Host a Virtual Food Drive – Plan a virtual food drive with measurable goals online using the Feeding America Personal Fundraiser tool and promote participation in your community
Find out how you can help and this season as the weather gets colder and we start to get ready for holidays with our loved ones may we also give back. Our family has supported local food drives by donating when we can. It’s a valuable lesson we would like to teach our children that’s why we pack up the car and donate to our local food banks. It’s especially important to give back as the weather gets colder and it’s a great lesson in giving for our children.
