Are you involved in any kind of hunger-fighting work this fall? If you are, please take a second and connect your school with Schools Fight Hunger and the Fall 2011 Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. It's completely free for schools and PTOs and PTAs, and you'll get:

  • One of the best program planning kits (for any kind of program!) we've seen. The vinyl banner alone will bring your food drive up about 6 notches.

  • Info on how you can make your fall food drive so much more through what amounts to a matching donation program from ConAgra Foods. Very cool.

  • The ability to make sure your school gets full, public credit in the national tally of schools doing this good work. (See the national register.)

It's awesome for schools that already do this kind of work (makes it easier and better) and it's a perfect start if you've been thinking about starting a food drive at your school. Get connected here.

Finally, if you know the student council president or the National Honor Society adviser or if you have a sister in Topeka who's involved with a school food drive somehow, could you please forward this note? We're pretty passionate about getting schools connected to this good work. Hope you can tell.
