In all our years combined (and my husband has 50 of them to his life so far!) no one in our family knows what it is like to be hungry. We can reach into the pantry, fridge or freezer for anything from a juice drink to chicken nuggets at any given time. After having a child of my own, I had a keen passion for helping the plight of hungry kids in my own community who might go to bed with an empty stomach at night.
The Hunger Heroes campaign is all about action. It’s about turning families into superheroes, and tapping into the incredible power of giving.
Even though we’re only a family of three, we make a trek to Sam’s Club once a month and stock up our freezer and pantry. Often you’ll find us going through the checkout with Tyson chicken and KRAFT Food products. When we were there this past weekend, I was more than happy to drop a 5-pound bag of Tyson Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets, a 12 pack of 7.5 oz KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner and a case of 40 CAPRI SUN Juice Drinks into our cart.
By purchasing those select products at Sam’s Club in August, you help feed a child in need. A donation of 4oz. of protein, 6 fl. oz. CAPRI SUN, and /or 2.5 oz. of KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinners will be made. That makes my family and your family Hunger Heroes!
One thing we’re adament about when we buy food for hungry people is that we won’t donate food that we wouldn’t eat ourselves. So my daughter was eager to try out the Tyson Chicken Nuggets and CAPRI SUN at the Sam’s Club Demo cart that was featuring the Hunger Heroes products.
They were making it super easy for everyone to be a Hunger Hero, with the chicken nuggets in the freezer display case right next to the demo, and cases of the KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner and CAPRI SUN along side it.
But just in case you’re like me and have to walk down every. single. aisle. of Sam’s Club (much to my daughter’s chagrin!) so you never miss out on a deal, you can also find the items in their regular places in the warehouse club as well.
We’ve been spending every Wednesday lunch time this summer at a local apartment complex with a community program called “Kids Eat Free.” It’s a program that provides lunches for underprivileged children during the summer months when school lunch programs are not available. We help pack lunch sacks of food for the kids. It’s a great thing to do together as a family and reinforce to our daughter that she’s very blessed to have food whenever she wants.
This last week we brought along the case of CAPRI SUN that we bought at Sam’s Club. Amber and I wore our superhero t-shirts, which really made us feel like Hunger Heroes!
The kids quickly scooped up that CAPRI SUN, and we had just enough to go around. Typically between 30 to 50 children come to this location to get a lunch. Last week we had just under 40 kids.
Sometimes the kids hang around after they eat their lunch and those of us who come and volunteer will chat with them, read books to them, blow bubbles, do a craft or play games together.
If you want to try out the products yourself, Sam’s Club is featuring the Hunger Heroes demo again this coming weekend August 9th and 10th at all Sam’s Club locations. If you go to check it out consider purchasing one or all of the items so that a donation will be made for a hungry child.
How does your family fight hunger? Poverty in the USA is all too real, join the Hunger Heroes and help hungry kids.
