As we’re all planning and prepping for our holiday meals, it’s easy to forget that so many others in our world struggle to find their next meal. In fact…
“Right here in the United States, 1 out of every 5 children do not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s 16 million suffering from child hunger.”
It’s heartbreaking to think how this means my kids are probably sitting next to more than one child in their own classrooms who are struggling with hunger.
Commit a Random Act of Kindness by Sharing a Meal!
So I’m partnering with Unilever Project Sunlight to spread awareness and encourage YOU and your kids to “Share A Meal to Help Turn the Tables on Child Hunger in America.”
Here’s one easy way to do it…
#ShareAMeal with this EASY Random Act of Kindness
One simple way to share a meal is through a simple “Dinner’s On Us!” random act of kindness.
Get the kids involved in choosing a meal and shopping for the ingredients. We chose a meal of spaghetti since it didn’t have any perishable ingredients, which meant that we could just leave it at a random door.
Print and attach one of our (FREE!) “Dinner’s On Us” gift tags. And drop it on the doorstep of any home in your neighborhood.

Since hunger has such a stigma in our culture, it’s sometimes hard to identify a particular family in need. You could try “investigating” by asking your pastor or church leader if they know of a family in need. Or choose a random house in a lower income area of your community.
