In August 2009, more than 80 bloggers teamed up with General Mills and ShopRite Partners In Caring and took the initiative in spreading the word about food insecurity within the United States. The combined effort was in hopes of inspiring readers to join the fight against hunger and bring about awareness that there is people in need right here in our own country. The campaign resulted in a donation of 3,000 boxes of cereal to local food banks in ShopRite’s trading area of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland. I had the unique opportunity to be apart of this special selected group of bloggers who participated and was featured in a photo mosaic on a special-edition Honey Nut Cheerios box. More importantly, I felt wonderful to be able to do a small part in bringing attention to such a good cause!
Well this year I’m proud to be back again to tell you about the ShopRite´s “Shop Once. Give Twice.” program and how you can do your part in supporting local participating schools through Box Tops for Education plus donate to ShopRite´s Partners in Caring simply by doing everyday food shopping. How cool is that?
