It may be the child who sits next to your child at school, or the child who comes for a sleepover Friday night. It might be the little ones in the nursery at church. It might be your own child. The fact is that hunger hits close to home. 1 in 5 children in America face hunger every single day. 1 in 5! That means that your child most likely knows one of these children. As a parent I feel so helpless know this and look for ways to help these children around the world. That’s why when I was asked to participate in the Unilever brightFuture #ShareAMeal blog program as a member of One2One Network I was excited to accept. Unilever wants to do something to change the hunger these children are experiencing. They’ve partnered with Feeding America and are providing a million meals to those in need this holiday season. You can join them in providing a million more! We can all Share a Meal to Give a Child a Brighter Future.
In the last five years Unilever has provided more than 30 million meals through their partnership with Feeding America. Now we can all join Unilever to bring a brighter future to children facing food scarcity. There are so many ways we can help.
Share a Meal to Give a Child a Brighter Future
Share a Meal
Share a meal in your home or join together with neighbors to host a block meal. Organize a meal in your community where everyone is welcome. Maybe that’s a little more than you have time or financial ability to do. That’s okay. You can find a local food bank to donate to or support Feeding America to give back to your community. Visit brightfuture.unilever.us to learn more about how you can take action to end childhood hunger in different ways.
Buy Unilever Products
There are other ways you can join Unilever in providing meals this holiday season. When you buy a participating Unilever product like Dove or Hellmann’s in-store with their coupon delivered in the Sunday paper on November 15, or on Amazon Prime Pantry, Unilever will donate one meal to Feeding America®.
