ConAgra Foods, Feeding America’s Leadership Partner in the fight to end child hunger, is kicking off the third year of its nationally recognized Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
The campaign allows supporters to enter The Idaho Foodbank into a contest to receive an 80,000-meal donation courtesy of ConAgra Foods, as well as the opportunity to provide meals through Feeding America, the nation’s network of food banks.
As a reward, supporters can also download an original song and exclusive video content from platinum recording artists Jewel, Owl City and Jay Sean, and a social-media influencer campaign comprised of leading bloggers from throughout the nation. With these efforts, ConAgra Foods will work to meet its overall goal of donating five million meals this school year to Feeding America.
To participate, consumers can purchase specially marked packages of select ConAgra Foods brands including Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Manwich, Orville Redenbacher’s, Peter Pan and Snack Pack, then visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages. For each code entered, the equivalent of one meal will be donated to Feeding America.
Consumers will also be able to submit their ZIP codes to enter The Idaho Foodbank into a competition to receive the 80,000-meal donation from ConAgra Foods.
In return for entering a code from specially marked packages, consumers can download their favorite version of “Here’s Hope” from Jewel, Owl City and Jay Sean. Exclusive interviews, messages and behind-the-scenes videos by each artist will also be available during the program on www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com.
Co-written by industry-leading songwriters Hunter Hayes, Luke Laird and Barry Dean, the original song, “Here’s Hope,” leverages the power of music to inspire action, touch hearts and raise awareness for the issue, while motivating consumers to learn how they can help end child hunger in the United States.
Beginning March 2, consumers can visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com to download original versions of the song recorded by Jewel, Owl City and Jay Sean, and enjoy exclusive content from each artist while supporting the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation have collectively donated more than 275 million pounds of food and invested more than $36 million dollars to combat child hunger since 1993. The Foundation, the philanthropic organization primarily funded by ConAgra Foods, is in the midst of a $10 million, 5-year commitment to Feeding America, the largest donation ever made to Feeding America specifically to fight child hunger.
