I wrote about the Land O’Lakes campaign on behalf of Feeding America last April and it’s already that time again! I appreciate companies that give back and I show my support by purchasing their products and of course, posting about them on this blog. Last year the goal for the Pin A Meal, Give a Meal campaign was 2 million meals, but this year, Land O’Lakes has a goal of 2.7 million meals for Feeding America!*
Donating your time to good causes is just as important as money. Helping Land O’Lakes reach their goal of 2.7 million meals is simple and only involves a few seconds of your time. If you have Pinterest account, great! All you need to do then is pin or re-pin any Land O’Lakes recipe and Land O’Lakes will then donate 9 meals to Feeding America for every pin. If you don’t have a Pinterest account, it takes only a minute and you can sign up here.
Did you know that one in six people are living at risk of hunger in America? I’m a big believer of helping when you see a need whether that’s right in your own backyard or oceans away. We live in America, a nation that has so much. There is a need and we can do something about it right now.
When you help feed a family by doing something as simple as pinning (something I already enjoy doing!), you are giving much more than a meal. You’re helping them live full and active lives, do better at work and at school, and build better futures. Give more than a meal; help someone live up to their full potential.
Get pinning and find some delicious, easy meals while you’re at it! I just pinned the delicious Donut Puffs. My kids will thank me!
*$1 helps provide 9 meals* secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks. The Land O’Lakes Foundation guarantees a minimum of 2.7 million meals* (monetary equivalent of $300,000.00) to Feeding America and member food banks from March 28th through May 31st, 2014.
