Support Hunger Is at Shaws: Make Breakfast Happen So Kids Can Be Hungry For More #sponsored #ad #shaws

One in five children in America lives in a household without adequate access to food. How scary is that? Can you imagine sending your child to school hungry or not being able to feed them? I'm partnering with Shaws stores as they bring this awareness to help end childhood hunger and their national Hunger Is campaign. It's taking place September 1st through September 30th, 2016 to help aid in the relief of childhood hunger in America. 
As a Mom and blogger who often raves about various recipes, it's heartbreaking to me that some kids just simply don't have access to food. We have a lot of food here, more than we really need, shouldn't every child have access to food? There are programs out there to help children yet nearly half of those who qualify for free or reduced school breakfast, still don't receive it. Having been in the schools quite often over the years, you can tell when kids come ready to learn and concentrate and those who are not nourished. So many children just cannot focus because they are hungry. 3 out of 5 elementary school teachers have reported seeing kids coming to school without eating breakfast and unable to concentrate and do what's expected of them on a daily basis. That's hard for these children, the class and the teachers. 
Won't you join me in supporting #HungerIsUs? 
To support the Hunger Is campaign, I shopped at my local Shaws store to purchase participating brands. Simply look for participating items on your grocery store's shelves. When you purchase them, you'll trigger a meal donation. We bought ten participating items which led to a $1 donation.  
Simply print the participating products on the website and find them in store. Use coupons to save more! It's a good time to take your children and talk to them about the importance of helping those in need and children who don't have as much as we do. Kids love to help, they are compassionate and know it just feels good to make a difference. It's great to encourage that at an early age!
Buy Particpating Brands and Donate at the Register
There are two ways to participate and support the Hunger Is campaign during September:
  1. Buy participating products like I talked about before, which you can find via tags in store. Purchases of these items in September 2016 will trigger at least $0.10 donation up to $1 million! Visit Shaws and take a look at the participating brands including Goldfish, Campbell's, Pepperidge Farm, Suave, Bayer, Quaker, O Organics and more. 
  2. You can also make a donation at the checkout by adding $1, $3 or $5 (available in select stores). 
How will you support Hunger Is? 
Be sure to head to your local Shaws store to contribute and help eliminate childhood hunger!
