Show Your Helping Hand - Feeding America and a Giveaway

"Show your Helping Hand is a national hunger relief campaign created by Hamburger Helper ®."

Hunger in America is a staggering problem. Approximately 5.7 million people receive emergency food assistance from the Feeding America Organization.

"It's hard to believe in a great country like ours, one in six people struggles with not having enough food." - Tim McGraw

Here is a public announcement from Hamburger Helper:

"To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping HandTM campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a Public Service Announcement which will be distributed nationwide.

Support the campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at or by logging on to make a donation. Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program. Don´t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank."

The Giveaway:

I received a prize package which contained:

1. A Hamburger Helper Foam Hand.
2. One Box of Betty Crocker, Hamburger Helper.
3. A Music CD by Tim McGraw
4. A card which states that a donation for $10 to the Show Your Helping Hand Campaign was given in my name.

Would you like to win the above prize pack? I have one available for a giveaway. All you have to do is share a suggestion to help feed the hungry in your own area.

We have been involved on both the giving and receiving ends in our community. We help box stuff up for Care & Share (and were even in the background for one of their commercials), or we help make quilts that are auctioned off to raise money for a local food pantry ministry. We watch for fantastic sales -- even on things we don't use -- and donate the excess. For a long time, we made an effort to spend an extra 5% on every grocery trip, and to donate that. Particularly perishables -- veggies, meat, etc. We really should go back to doing that again.

Our family helps distribute bread that we get donated from local grocery stores to those in need at our church. We also as a part of our small group at church bought a family in need food through Angel Food and let others know about their service.

We've worked at the food banks in two towns now. We have seen the edge between pride and need. Much of the food goes untouched by those whose children are hungry - because their pride will not allow them to step in. So they Charge. Go without. We have seen those who we think have nothing else to eat besides those boxes. Yes, America has food stamps. Yet, with us, as Veterans, we do not qualify. Our income is just enough to not get food stamps, and we usually have a week of beans. Yesterday I had to borrow against a direct deposit for food. We get to go to the food bank on Thursday. God if Faithful. Praying for other families!!!

Starting in November, our local Publix store offers for purchase three different assortments of food for the needy. The bags contain staples such as rice, peanut butter, canned vegetables, etc, as well as holdiay meal items. I buy the bags to donate as I am able to. I also pick up extras when they have their "buy one, get one free" sales on canned goods and packaged items, and I accumulate another bag to donate to a local church food pantry. I think we all can do something, no matter how little.

We participate in the post office's "stamp out hunger".

When I find a great deal, I buy a few extra and have my hubby drop it by our local gospel mission.

We donate to and help with the Children's Hunger Fund. Our family has "adopted" one family in the poorest section of our city to be-friend and bring boxes of food to. A nice relationship is building with this family.

We have food drives as well. It is always good to donate something that you know you won't eat. I always manage to get things I don't eat when they are in the deep discount cart!
