Support the Child Hunger Ends Here initiative with the Chicago Wolves and ConAgra Food


December 18, 2014

 For each ticket purchased through the Chicago Wolves’ youth hockey program, ConAgra will donate a meal to Feeding America — a program that has provided 15 million meals and counting.

One of the easiest ways to limit a child’s potential is to leave him hungry, to make it a struggle to find the next meal.

National studies indicate that children who endure even occasional issues with hunger can suffer serious and long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement.

And when the United States Department of Agriculture reports that 15.8 million Americans under the age of 18 are food-insecure and can’t access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life – that’s one in every 5 children – it makes the problem sound almost too big to solve.

This is what inspires the Child Hunger Ends Here program. The Chicago Wolves and ConAgra Foods are proud to partner this season on behalf of Child Hunger Ends Here.

For each ticket purchased through the Chicago Wolves’ youth hockey program, ConAgra Foods will donate a meal to Feeding America. Since Child Hunger Ends Here began in 2010, it has supplied enough donations to Feeding America (a 501 ©(3) non-profit organization) to provide more than 15 million meals.

To purchase tickets that trigger more donations, visit the team’s youth hockey page at ChicagoWolves.com/youth-hockey or contact Youth Hockey Coordinator Rob Newburg at rnewberg@chicagowolves.com or 847-832-1993.

There are additional ways to support Child Hunger Ends Here. Each time a ConAgra Foods product is purchased – popular brands include Marie Callender’s, Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Orville Redenbacher, Hunt’s Tomatoes, Reddi Wip, Snack Pack Pudding, Peter Pan Peanut Butter, PAM Cooking Spray, Manwich, Wolf Bran Chili and many others – a donation is made to Child Hunger Ends Here.

“Together, we can all do our part to end this issue,” said Chris Sinta, ConAgra Foods’ director for Sponsorship, Partnership and Licensing.
