The Super Bowl is Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012 and is the United States’ second highest day of food consumption.
Time out—after the holidays, food banks are usually low on food and, people are still hungry. So what can we do?
Make a Substitution: Instead of asking your guests to bring chips and dip to your Super Bowl party, ask them to bring canned food to donate.
Team Up: Compete with friends, neighbors, classrooms, or towns to see who can donate the most food. Get a mascot, write some cheers and recognize the MVP. Competitions and goals amp up the fun and encourage people to make giving a tradition.
Draft: While everyone’s gathered together, draft a hunger team and make a commitment to fight hunger year round. Start planning a community garden; make a food drive calendar; or huddle up and think of other ways to help.
