Do it Yourself

Easy Summer Lunch Food Donation Idea

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This #SummerofGiving shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.

Growing up in the inner city of New York, I at times along with friends experienced during the summer months what’s now called “food deficit”. 
I’m sure my community involvement, with food pantries is a result of my childhood experiences.
I believe children should never be without three nutritious meals a day, but the sad fact is that many kids do go with meals, especially during the summer months when school breakfast and lunch is not readily available. 
To help with the “food deficit” issue in our nation, I’m reaching out to kids in my own community and providing lunches. 
I’ve teamed up with Walmart and Tyson, who have partnered with Champion for Kids to provide 5 million meals to kids this summer. 
Because I bought this bag of Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken strips at Walmart, one meal will be donated to a child in need.

Their food donation efforts are on a much larger scale than mine, but I’m going to show you how simple it is to put together a simple service project, that will feed a few more kids this summer. 
What I’m doing is just the tip of the iceberg. You can get tons more simple service ideas from the Champion For Kids website and learn about companies that give back.
For my service project, I’m making lunches for kids in our area who have shown signs of “food deficit”.
Using the Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken strips, I’m putting together some simple grilled chicken wraps.
Each lunch will include (1) protein, (1) grain, (1) fruit, (3) vegetables and (1) beverage.
These little lunch boxes are the perfect size to hold everything.
To get involved and support food donations, be sure to grab the specially marked Tyson Day Starts, Grilled & Ready, Any’tizers and chicken nugget products at your local Walmart.
