Each time you redeem a coupon from the November 2nd P&G coupon booklet, Proctor and Gamble will donate one meal to a person in need. Proctor and Gamble has partnered with Feeding America, formerly known as America’s Second Harvest. Feeding America, “provides assistance to more than 25 million people in need, secures and distributes more than 2 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products, and supports feeding programs at approximately 63,000 local charitable agencies.”
According to the Give a Meal website:
- 36 million Americans are food insecure, hungry or at risk of hunger
- According to the USDA, 13.3 million children live in households that suffer from hunger or live on the edge of hunger
- One in four people in a soup-kitchen line is a child
If you aren’t planning on using all of your coupons, perhaps you can share them with a friend, family or neighbor who might redeem them. Spread the word and help P&G provide meals to those in need.
