For more than 20 years, ConAgra Foods and Feeding America have been partners in the fight against child hunger.
This spring, ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here campaign gave consumers an easy way to help kids struggling with hunger. For each 8-digit code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods products and entered at www.childhungerendshere.com, ConAgra Foods donated the monetary equivalent* of one meal to Feeding America.
Codes could be found on 19 ConAgra Foods brands including Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Manwich, Orville Redenbacher’s, Peter Pan and Snack Pack. The code entry program concluded on August 31, 2013.
This year, ConAgra Foods actually exceeded their goal of donating 3 million meals to help kids at risk of hunger. Nearly 3.1 million codes were entered by consumers online which translates into $387,443 for Feeding America. We are grateful to our partners at ConAgra Foods and for their loyal consumers who are making a difference in the fight against child hunger. Thank you.
*A monetary donation was made to help provide one meal through Feeding America’s network of food banks, up to a maximum of 3 million meals for codes entered through 8/31/13. Guaranteed minimum donation: 1 million meals ($125,000). Valid in U.S. only. $1 = 8 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local food banks.
