Child Hunger Ends Here:
Making a difference together
Did you know? More than 1 in 5 children in the United States don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And nearly 17 million* children in the U.S. are food insecure, meaning they don’t know how long the food they have will last — or whether they’ll have money to buy more.
Thanks to caring people from across the country who entered codes from their favorite ConAgra Foods brands, you helped us toward our yearlong goal of donating the monetary equivalent of 5 million meals** to Feeding America®. Among those meals, 80,000 were targeted to local food banks in each of the top-10 code-redeeming ZIP codes.
ConAgra Foods and the USA TODAY Charitable Foundation have partnered to create the Child Hunger Ends Here Project-Based Learning Experience. This dynamic educational tool helps students in grades 7 to 12 learn about child hunger, create a cause-marketing plan to activate their communities and submit the results for a chance to win a national competition. Students can make a difference!

This spring, ConAgra Foods is partnering with generationOn to launch What Will You Bring to the Table? This initiative to mobilize youth across the country will address child hunger in America by gathering around tables to create service projects that raise awareness and bring collective action to this critical issue. In the spirit of building a community of people who are passionate about this issue, we are proud to collaborate with generationOn, motivating our employees and consumers to action!
