I was just contacted to participate in a wonderful event being held by ShopRite's Partners in Caring program called "Blog it Forward to Fight Hunger". ShopRite's Partners in Caring program was created by ShopRite back in 1999 to help fight hunger in our local communities--not just during the holidays, but year-round. Since its inception, ShopRite Partners in Caring has donated over $20 million towards the fight against hunger!

Now ShopRite Partners in Caring has teamed up with General Mills to create the "Blog it Forward to Fight Hunger" initiative to spread the word about this program and encourage community participation. As an incentive for bloggers to spread the word, General Mills and ShopRite will donate one box of cereal to an area food bank for the first 30 people who comment on my post!

All I'm asking for is 30 comments, and ShopRite & General Mills will donate 30 boxes of cereal because of my efforts! It can't get much easier than just leaving a comment here on this post! :)

My church has a local food pantry & I've been able to see first-hand just how food distributions benefit the hungry in our area. ShopRite Partners In Caring program supports 23 regional food banks and more than 1,400 charitable agencies. One easy way that you can support this program is to purchase products in the store with the ShopRite Partners In Caring shelf tag. That way, each time you are shopping for your own family, you are helping to feed other hungry families in our community.

So many people don't have enough money to buy food. It is truly saddening. My one comment will buy a box of cereal and I think that's great!!! I am glad I can help.
