I like food and I like causes so when I can combine food and a good cause (like feeding hungry kids), I’m all over that which is why we are helping to
Fight hunger with
Champions for Kids’ Hunger Heroes Initiative
(Imagine me in a cape saying that in a Superhero voice!)
Last weekend, the family and I headed to our local Sam’s Club to learn more about the Hunger Heroes initiative and sample Tyson’s chicken nuggets, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, and Capri Sun. (Be sure to check out the demos at your local Sam’s Club this upcoming weekend, August 9th and 10th.)
The Hunger Heroes initiative is all about action – turning families into superheroes, and tapping into the incredible power of giving. Like any good superhero, Hunger Heroes are bold, confident, and even playful as they save the day in style.
During the month of August, when shoppers purchase Tyson® Fully-Cooked Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. bag, KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner 7.25 oz. 12-pack, and/or Capri-Sun 6 oz. 40-pack; Tyson and KRAFT will help feed a child in need by donating 4 ounces of protein, 6 fluid ounces of CAPRI SUN, and/or 2.5 ounces of KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinners.
My kids are all about giving back when they can. Throughout their lives, we have stressed the importance of giving to others who do not have the things our kids are lucky to have. We have donated toys, clothing, household items, money and/or food throughout the years to those in need.
With school starting, my kids wanted to donate school supplies to their school to help their teachers and classmates.
This is the first year that the school has supplied my children with their school supplies. Usually, we end up having to purchase all their supplies. With that, my initial plan was to make up some supply bags for the school to give the kids who may need school supplies but couldn’t afford them.
When I heard that the kids didn’t need supplies, I had to come up with a new plan.
Someone shared this post on Facebook and it caught my attention. In particular, this one paragraph caught my attention:
Right now—I’m broke. My pockets are empty. Every spare penny has been used to purchase bulletin board materials, novels, and extra bookcases. Anything that will bring warmth and brightness to my classroom. The state or school doesn’t fund these expenses. My purse foots the bill.
It was then that we decided we would purchase school supplies for the kids’ classrooms to make things a little easier on their teachers – and the kids could not have been more excited. (In fact, Buddy reminded me every day that we had to get supplies to donate at school!)
The kids’ first day of school was Wednesday and they took all their supplies with them Thursday. Buddy reported back to me that his teacher called me lovely for donating the supplies. I told him I was just being helpful because I could.
If you would like to join us as Hunger Heroes, be sure to check out the demo at your local Sam’s Club this upcoming weekend, and purchase Tyson® Fully-Cooked Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. bag, KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner 7.25 oz. 12-pack, and/or Capri-Sun 6 oz. 40-pack.
