Whether it’s packing lunch boxes before school or stocking the snack shelf for at-home learning, we’re all settling into our new routines – and setting our kids up for success.
But during this unprecedented back-to-school season, 18 million kids in America don’t know where their next meal is coming from – a truth that impacts their ability to thrive in school without the nourishment they need.
This Hunger Action Month, Shipt is teaming up with Feeding America® for the third year to provide 1 million meals to kids and families facing hunger, through the Feeding America® network of food banks.
With your help, we can make sure that all children have adequate access to food. From food bank donations and volunteer days to learning the facts, read on for all the ways we’re fighting hunger – one meal at a time.
Feeding Your Family Can Help Feed America
Throughout September, Shipt is turning your grocery cart and social media shares into meals with 2 ways to give back.
$1 = 10 meals: For every $1 you spend in our Hunger Action Month category, we’ll provide at least 10 meals* (up to $75,000) to our neighbors in need. Before your next weekly stock-up of fresh groceries and essentials, shop the category for General Mills favorites your kids can eat to stay fueled and focused, from quick and easy breakfasts to the all-important after-school snack.
1 share = 10 meals: All it takes is a single click to get involved this Hunger Action Day on September 10. For every share, comment or reaction on Facebook, repost and tag @shipt on Instagram, or retweet on Twitter, Shipt will provide at least 10 meals* (up to $25,000) to kids and families facing hunger. Tag a friend and we’ll donate an additional 10 meals for each tag. Join the conversation on social media and help spread awareness about childhood hunger.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks. For every dollar spent in the Hunger Action Month™ category and for each share or repost on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram during the social campaign, Shipt will donate the monetary equivalent of at least 10 meals, for a minimum donation of $75,000 up to $100,000 from September 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020.
