Feeding America

Meg from Pigtown*Design and Easy and Elegant Life have joined creative and fundraising forces to create April Food Day, a one-day fundraiser to raise money and donations for food banks across America through Feeding America (formerly Second Harvest), a national food bank with 200 member banks across the country.

Did you know that...
  • One in eight Americans are at risk for hunger?
  • Four million Americans receive assistance from Feeding America each week?
  • Children who are hungry have slower emotional, social and educational development?
  • Millions of elderly Americans go to bed hungry every night?
  • A donation of just ONE DOLLAR will buy 10 pounds of food.
Click here for Feeding America.

Please also take the time to click here to take the pledge to Dine In to Fight Childhood Hunger (It's free!!) and Stouffers will donate $5 to Feeding America on your behalf.

Thank you for your generosity!
