Stamp Out Hunger on May 11, 2013
While we are the richest country in the world, the sad fact is that many families in our communities are going hungry. Some go to bed hungry and others don't know where their next meal will be coming from. It's a real crisis.
After watching, Hunger Hits Home
, my 7 year old said, "Mommy, it's so sad. It's not okay that people don't have food. How can we change this?".
It's not just a stranger's reality, this is a common issue that can happen to any one of us. Hunger hits our neighbors, our friends and our family. Most hardworking Americans that do have jobs still struggle to feed their family.
So how can we help? Many people think that only large donations make a difference, but there are no small efforts. If everyone
pitched in, we could make a huge impact on the lives of millions. Take
the first step and pledge to Stamp Out Hunger on May 11, 2013
. For each pledge made, Valpak will be donating $1 to Feeding America
(Up to $5,000). While $1 may sound miniscule, this provides an equivalent of 8 meals.
What are you waiting for? Take the pledge now!
