Did you know that one in five children in America live in households without consistent access to adequate food? And these kids are coming to school hungry. More than half of K-8 public school teachers regularly see students coming to school hungry.
Make Breakfast Happen So Kids Can Be Hungry For More
Safeway and the Hunger Is campaign are working to expand breakfast programs so that all kids can have a healthy start to their day. During the month of September, Safeway will donate up to $1 million nationally to local organizations that work to solve the problem of hunger in your community.
And Safeway has made it easy for YOU to participate in this campaign:
First, you can make a donation directly at the register! This option is available at your local Safeway — in fact, I was prompted when I entered my Safeway Club Card number at the register.
Second, you can purchase a product from a participating brand! Every designated product purchased supports “Hunger Is,” helping connect hungry kids in our neighborhoods to healthy food.
The purchase of a participating item in September 2016 will trigger at least a 10¢ donation up to $1 million.
You can find the full list of participating products by going to Safeway.com — scroll through the brands and find your favorite products!
I headed to my local Safeway store and found loads of affordable options on the shelves, including the ones I’ve pictured above! And remember, you can use manufacturer’s coupons and a Safeway double coupon (if you’re in Oregon or SW Washington) on any of these items!
Remember, the Hunger Is campaign is currently happening at your local Safeway store through the end of September. Get more information about this campaign HERE.
