Nuggetiers today I bring you all a great opportunity to do something to help the thousands of American families who go hungry everyday. ShopRite has created “Blog It Forward To Fight Hunger” to engage others in the fight against hunger through blogging. They’ve enlisted my help to get the word out. Bloggers In Caring, is a program that is part of ShopRite’s continuing efforts to raise awareness about the issue of hunger. For the past 10 years, the ShopRite Partners In Caring program has donated $2 million annually to local food banks – $20 million to date. In these troubled economic times, there is more need for food assistance than ever in our communities. Here in Maryland alone the need has become almost epidemic. In my native state of California food banks are falling far short of the stock they need to fill the demands of an ever growing need.
ShopRite has teamed up with bloggers and General Mills to provide boxes for comments. They will donate 30 boxes of cereal to a food bank in the ShopRite trading area if I can get at least 30 comments on this post by August 13th. Let’s show them that we can AND TRIPLE that! If I can get 90 comments I will personally donate 10 boxes of cereal to my local food bank. To sweeten the deal Cheerios will be featuring the bloggers who meet their goals on the back of a Honey Nut Cheerios box. If my mug makes it there I will give 5 of those boxes away to Nuggetiers. With the understanding that you’ll circle my picture and get it custom framed in a gilt mirror made of petrified Chicken Nuggets. Okay so maybe that’s a little too gross. But bloggers helping families in need is a great thing and I hope that The Nuggetiers will answer the call.
Do your part in your community too. Contact your local food bank to see how you can help.
