Huddle to Fight Hunger

Making a difference can be easy when great companies get behind great causes. You can make a difference just by clicking on the link below. Kraft is donating one meal for every click to their page or text. It won't take much effort on your part, but it will make a big difference for someone.

Here is a copy of the email I received with the link. Since I live in Southeast Michigan it is directed to the local food bank near me, but this is a national program. Please click today. The program ends on January 9th.

Kraft Foods has teamed up with Feeding America and Gleaners for the HUDDLE TO FIGHT HUNGER!

What is "Huddle to Fight Hunger"? Huddle to Fight Hunger is Kraft Foods' biggest-ever multi-brand integrated program. The program features many celebrities and the college football Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl game, all designed to help give Feeding America 20 million meals – or more – during this year's football season.

How does Huddle to Fight Hunger work? The program features a number of ways to help Kraft Foods meet and exceed their 20 million meal donation goal.  Here are a few of the easy ways to help:

  • Go to www.HuddletoFightHunger.com, and click "Join the Huddle" (just one simple click!). When you do, Kraft Foods will donate one meal. It's that easy: one person, one click, one meal donated to Gleaners.
  • Text the word "MEALS" and your zip code to 71717 – Kraft Foods will make a one meal donation to Gleaners for each text.
  • Play the Kraft Foods HUDDLE TO FIGHT HUNGER Game on Facebook! In the Fight Hunger Facebook Game, you pass the ball to a friend. For every pass thrown, Kraft Foods will donate 1 meal. If you and your friends can keep the drive alive for 4 passes, a touchdown will be scored and Kraft Foods will donate 7 bonus meals, for a total of 10!

As a member of the Feeding America network, Gleaners benefits from initiatives like this that raise awareness and funding for the important work we do every day. Millions of Americans are faced with food insecurity – and we're working harder every day to assist individuals and their families right here in Southeast Michigan. It's a daily challenge, and we are always looking for new ways to meet it head on – ways like the Huddle to Fight Hunger initiative!
