We introduced the Unilever Share-A-Meal Project a few months ago. Since that point, we’ve made it a priority to share a meal with others. The simple act of sharing a meal can have a big impact on the fight against child hunger. With your help, we hope to inspire others to join the movement and help turn the tables on child hunger in America.
The week of Halloween, I got together with other couples in our apartment complex and neighborhood, and we put together a chili cook off. We invited all of the families in our neighborhood, making sure to invite those who we knew were in need of a little extra help this holiday season.
We had judges, prizes, and a LOT of food for everyone who came! It didn’t take a lot of effort to throw together, and it was so nice to know we were helping others and enjoying time with our neighbors, too!
With over 16 million children in america struggling with hunger, one meal can go a long way. There are tons of ways you can get involved, too! Here are some of our favorites:
*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.
