It is hard to believe in a great country like ours, 1 in 6 people struggles with not having enough food.
According to Feeding America, approximately 5.7 million different people receive emergency food assistance from the organization in any given week.
When I saw this fact it totally broke my heart. I am astounded and saddened by this statistic. What can we do about it? Luckily, Hamburger Helper has made it easy to create a quick delicious meal but alao an easy way to help out with the hunger issue.
To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping Hand™ campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a Public Service Announcement which will be distributed nationwide.
Support the campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at http://www.showyourhelpinghand.com/ or by logging on to make a donation. Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program. Don’t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank.
