I #ShareAMeal because I care about ending hunger in the US…

IMG_5119.JPGLast week I shared Unilever Project Sunlight latest initiative, which focuses around ending child hunger in the US. As part of the post I shared their latest short documentary, titled Going to Bed Hungry: The Changing Face of Child Hunger. (Watch it, it’s only 4 minutes long and really important to see what’s happening in our own country — Click HERE to see the video).

16 Million Children are Struggling With Hunger in the US – What are we going to do about it?

I’ve written about Unilever Project Sunlight before, it’s a wonderful initiative focused on encouraging people to create a brighter future for children – by taking small steps to live sustainably, use less and share even more. This fallthey are focusing on child hunger today are premiering an original documentary, titled Going to Bed Hungry: The Changing Face of Child Hunger, which reveals the power and the promise of a shared meal for families across America. It’s only 4 minutes long, and so eye opening and inspiring to see how these families work together:

It’s hard to digest that in America, there are 16 million children struggling with hunger – that’s the
population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined. It’s heart breaking that this issue falls so under the radar and happens in ALL neighborhoods – rural, urban and suburban – with 1 in 5 children unaware where their next meal is coming from. It often goes so undetected and one of these children could be someone you know and from your community.

To help shed light on this issue and be a part of the solution, I’m partnering with Unilever Project Sunlight to help rally people across the country to “Share A Meal to Help Turn the Tables on Child Hunger in America”. Our hope is to inspire people to join this initiative and cook for their communities, start food drives or simply raise awareness by talking about what’s happening in our country. They have an amazing tool kit on their site that’s filled with the facts and ways you can help.

Please watch the documentary above and I encourage you share it and to get involved. Learn more on how you can make a difference at projectsunlight.us

Summer Sunlight Activity: Make an Herb Garden!

Earlier this month I so impressed by Unilever’s latest film for their Project Sunlight program, “The Way Kids See it,” which features kids from all over the world and how they make a difference. From wanting clean, trash-free beaches to helping bring food to members of their community, the video and Project Sunlight’s site is incredibly inspiring and the website features a bunch of different, fun activities and ways to live more sustainably.

Large corporations have so much that they can give and do for our communities that when one actually steps up to the plate, the way Unilever has, it’s nothing short of inspiring and what I hope will set an example for more brands to take initiative the way they are.


Unilever recently launched it’s latest film for their Project Sunlight program, “The Way Kids See it.” (Watch it above).  The short shows how kids of all ages care about this world and want to make a difference — many of which are. They are from all over the world and are tackling all sorts of environmental and social issues from wanting clean, trash-free beaches to helping bring food to members of their community.
