GOOD CAUSE: Make Bread Art, Help Hungry Children
Bread art: tops in toast. Here, “The Card-
|Nearly 17 million children in America—almost one in four—struggle with hunger. Their families have a hard time putting food on the table.
The non-profit Grain Foods Foundation has teamed up with food show host Melissa d’Arabian and Share Our Strength, a non-profit organization hoping to end childhood hunger in America by 2015, to help give hungry children access to nutritious meals.
The Bread Art Project was created in 2009 by the Grain Foods Foundation to help increase awareness of the growing hunger problem in our country. Last year, visitors to BreadArtProject.com created more than 25,000 pieces of Bread Art to raise more than $25,000 for hunger relief. This year, the Foundation hopes to double that amount in its support of Share Our Strength.
How You Can Help @ No Cost!
Now through June 30, 2010, just create a personalized piece of bread art by uploading a favorite drawing or photo, or designing a new one using a digital slice of bread as the canvas. For each piece of bread art created, the Grain Foods Foundation will donate $1 to Share Our Strength.
|There’s no cost to you—just create a fun piece of bread art. That $1 dollar donated by the Grain Foods Foundation on behalf of your piece can help provide three nutritious meals to a hungry child. Not-for-profit companies know how to stretch a dollar: $25 can help feed one child three healthy meals every day for a month; $100 can help provide 25 children facing hunger backpacks full of healthy food to feed them and their families over the weekend.
