Helping Hungry Children in America with Juicy Juice {Giveaway}

Green Kiwi Fruit

In April, I shared with you that fifty million Americans don’t know where their next meal will come from. There’s a lot of organizations and brands working to help with the issue of hunger in America and I’m pleased to let you know of just one more!

The Juicy Juice Fruit for All Project, is a joint effort between Nestlé Juicy Juice, Feeding America, and anti-hunger advocate Samantha Harris. The project’s goal is to put up to 35 million pieces of fruit in the hands of children and families in need. So, with every purchase of Juicy Juice for your home, Nestlé will provide a piece of fruit to hungry families.

Some interesting information I received regarding this project, is that a recent survey found that 1 in 4 moms don’t think hunger affects many children in the U.S. However, the sad truth is that over 16 million children live at risk of hunger, with summer meaning greater risk for them to be hungry. This is because during the school year, children in need often receive either free or reduced-cost meals at school.

How can you get involved in helping with the Juicy Juice Fruit for All Project? As I mentioned earlier, it’s as simple as purchasing Juicy Juice, which if you have small kids in the home (like me!) you probably already do this. From now through August 31, each time Juicy Juice is
purchased, a piece of fruit will be provided by Nestlé to hungry kids and families. Another way is to interact on Juicy Juice’s Facebook page – they have some games, quizzes and puzzles you can play to earn more fruit donations for needy families. This might be a fun way to get the kids involved and help them learn about hunger in America. Of course, volunteering at local food banks is always a great way to get involved too!

I would love to give away food to needy people. I have given food cans and bought food when stores had offers to buy food for needy people.
