This post is a not for profit collaboration with Mealshare. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I could sit here and lecture you all about sharing, giving and ending youth hunger but lets be frank. The reality is most of us want to enjoy our first world lives…dinner out with friends and family. But I know We ALL Want to make a DIFFERENCE. Which is why the concept behind Mealshare is brilliant.
Mealshare is a not for profit group committed to ending youth hunger. Their concept is simple. Basically they partner with restaurants where the restaurant selects menu items to be a Mealshare item. Every time a dining guest orders a meal with the Mealshare symbol, Mealshare will provide a healthy a simple meal to a youth in need. Buy one-Give one. Simple, effective, charitable.
So far Mealshare has served 2,419,511 meals to hungry youths in need!
Please visit their website for more information and/or to find a restaurant participating in the Mealshare campaign. Or follow their digital channels.
Another way to contribute to this amazing cause is picking up a jar or two of Famoso’s Campania Tomato Sauce. Same concept. Buy a jar- give one meal to a hungry youth in need. With the holiday season around the corner, I’ve teamed up with Mealshare to come up with a holiday crostini with a Korean twist incorporating Famoso’s Campania Tomato Sauce. It’s spicy, crunchy, warm and a perfect starter for hungry bellies this holiday season.
