Help fight NC hunger (by simply buying cereal)!!

I heard this on the radio on my way to work this morning and just had to post about it...

As well all know, hunger is an issue that affects people far and wide. Unfortunately, it is also here in North Carolina.

According to the Malt-O-Meal website,

“Hunger affects 13% of area residents. That’s over a million children, seniors and adults who aren’t able to have even the basics of three meals a day.

Participating food banks provide food for an estimated 1,098,200 people annually through their network of partner agencies providing emergency food assistance. This includes children, adults, and seniors.”

Wow...   : (   

The good news? Malt-O-Meal is making it easy to help out. By simply buying their cereal, you can help feed those who are in need. Malt-O-Meal has already donated one million servings of cereal to area food banks! Now with our help they can reach their goal of providing two million servings of Malt-O-Meal cereals to children and adults in need. Helping out is easy - just purchase any Malt-O-Meal cold cereal products, then click Here to visit their website and register your purchase. For each bag you buy, 10 servings will be donated!
