It’s the season of giving. I’m happy to tell you about an initiative to end child hunger. ConAgra Foods Foundation and Sandra Lee, of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade, in partnership with Share Our Strength®, are launching the Champions Against Child Hunger contest. Their mission is to recognize those who are doing great work to help end child hunger in their communities across the country.
Do you know someone who fits the bill? Who in your community should be recognized for their work and compassion?
- It’s easy to enter -have a family member or friend that you would like to nominate? – or even yourself? Enter your nomination at the Champions Against Child Hunger Web site, http://www.ChampionsAgainstChildHunger.org, through Jan. 22.
- For each submission, ConAgra Foods Foundation will donate $10 to Share Our Strength. Then, you’ll have a chance to vote on finalists to raise even more funds. And, the finalists and winner both receive grants for their hunger relief organization of choice.
o Each of the top five finalists will receive a cash prize of $500 as a reward for their advocacy and passion for ending child hunger, and a matching donation of $500 to Share Our Strength or their hunger relief organization of choice.
o The grand prize winner will receive a trip to New York City, a tour of The Food Network studios, and a cash prize of $1,500, as well as a donation of $5,000 to Share Our Strength or their hunger relief organization of choice.
ConAgra Foods Foundation has committed an incremental donation of up to $100,000 to Share Our Strength. The Champions Against Child Hunger contest builds on the ConAgra Foods Foundation’s partnership with Share Our Strength and our commitment to building a community of people passionate about ending child hunger.
