It's hard to believe that in the United States there are 15.3 million children who live in households where they don't have consistent access to nutritious food needed for a healthy life. The results are hunger, of course, and food insecurity because children are left to deal with a poorer quality of life.
In an effort to combat child hunger and provide families with nutritious meals, Welch's® Fruit Snacks partnered with Feeding America® to provide 1 million meals to those in need. From now until October, every box of Welch's Fruit Snacks purchased can help fight child hunger.
They need our help to make this possible. When you buy Welch's Fruit Snacks and submit a proof of purchase, the company will donate an additional $1.00, which equals 11 meals, to Feeding America®. Their goal is to reach 1.6 million donated meals.
Here's how you can participate:
- Buy any Welch's® Fruit Snacks
- Snap a photo of the packaging
- Submit your photo by either:
· Texting "lunch" to 811-811
· Uploading it at fillthelunchbox.com
*For each photo received, Welch's® Fruit Snacks will donate $1.00 to Feeding America®.
