Champions For Kids Wants You to Become a #HungerHero

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

What is one of the most important things I teach my kids? To give back to others. To me, this is just as important as learning the alphabet or how to add and subtract. Moral education is something seriously lacking these days and I can only hope that my children will grow into adults who genuinely strive to make the world a better place for themselves and others. I am excited to be partnering with Champions for Kids, an organization started in 2004 that aims to foster a love for giving in today’s youth.


Champions for Kids helps children in communities gain access to the things they need to grow, develop, and thrive. Do you know how many children go to school hungry or cold because their families can’t afford food or clothing? The statistics are frightening, actually. 16.8 million children in America lack access to basic necessities needed to thrive. That means children in your own child’s classroom may be going to school hungry. Champions For Kids believes “All children should have: Someone who cares; a Place to belong; Hope for tomorrow and provisions for their journey. All children.

Become a Hunger Hero!

How can you help the fight against poverty in your own community and become a Hunger Hero? Champions for Kids, Tyson Foods, and KRAFT Foods are teaming up to provide meals to children in need. But, they need your help! Have a Sam’s Club near you and want to help in this effort? Head to Sam’s Club and purchase any of the following products:

  • Tyson® Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. bag
  • KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner 7.25 oz., 12 pack
  • CAPRI SUN Juice Drink Variety Pack, 40 pouches

When you do, a child in need will receive:

  • 4 oz. of protein,
  • 6 fl. oz. of CAPRI SUN,
  • and/or 2.5 oz. of KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinners

Get Your Family Involved!

The Be a Hunger Hero campaign is the perfect chance to get your children and other family members involved in giving back to others. Bring your children with you to Sam’s Club and show them the “Be a Hunger Hero” displays, explaining that children in their own classrooms may be less fortunate than they are. Doing so opens up the lines of communication to discuss the reality of the lives of many children in our country. Involving them also shows that they absolutely can make a difference in the lives of children just like them!
