** CLOSED ** Giveaway: Huddle to Fight Hunger with Kraft Foods #KraftFightHunger

 

Now that we've gotten through the whole "eating frenzy" of the holidays, we can concentrate on the next one… SUPERBOWL 2012! Woot, woot!! I know I for one am ready for some football.. and munchies, of course. We love a good game in our household.. even better if you can make it to a live game, but that's not always so easy with our large brood.

So, we do the next best thing.. have our own "tailgate party" at home. :)

Thanks to Kraft Foods, we received this fab package to get us started: a Weber Smokey Mini Grill, a Coleman 3-in-1 Blanket, a Charcoal Companion 4-piece Chef BBQ Tool Set, and a copy of The Neeley's Celebration Cookbook.

We are grillin' fools, and will do it come rain, snow, or shine… or dark of night. The hubby and I decided to cook up some yummy chicken breasts and cheeseburgers for our tailgate party last week. The kids always have alot of fun helping us prepare everything, and well… you already know they love to eat too.

The hubby thoroughly enjoyed his outdoor 3-in-1 blanket that kept him warm while he played chef (which he just happens to be), and I am mesmerized by all of the delish recipes from The Neeley's cookbook — two of my FAVORITE TV chefs!! And as you can see from the grill under the new Weber grill, it was time for a new one! lol

Doesn't this look like fun?!

Sharing delicious foods with the people you love is a wonderful time, but sad to say, we have people living right here in America that don't always have enough to eat.. on a daily basis! That's where Kraft Foods' "Huddle to Fight Hunger" tailgate campaign comes into play. Unfortunately, I "dropped the ball" and didn't get this post up in time, but I wanted to share the wonderful works that Kraft does to help fight hunger.

Huddle to Fight Hunger builds upon Kraft Foods’ nearly 30-year relationship with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, to help fight hunger in the United States. Unfortunately, hunger remains a quiet but prominent issue in this nation, as more than 50 million Americans – one in six of our neighbors – live in food insecure households.

Their goal was to give away 25 million meals to Feed America, which was surpassed! Kraft had set a 3-year commitment to this program, with 2010 being their first year. Kraft Foods donated nearly 21 million just at the first inaugural Kraft Fight Hunger bowl game held on January 9, 2011.

Many fans participated in the 2-Minute Trivia Drill on the Kraft Fight Hunger facebook page this past year… helping to donate up to 4,000,000 meals via online games and activities. Kraft enlisted high profile partners and personalities to champion the cause and get the word out, including American Youth Football (the nation’s largest youth football organization), football legend Joe Montana, celebrity chefs Pat and Gina Neely, as well as several former football greats.

Also joining Kraft Foods’ huddle are some of our biggest brand superstars including Planters nuts, Oreo cookies, Ritz crackers, Capri Sun beverages, Oscar Mayer meats, Maxwell House coffee, Kraft Real Mayo Mayonnaise, Miracle Whip Dressing, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Kraft cheese.

Please stop by to "like" Kraft Fight Hunger on Facebook and get more info on the program. Show your support for this awesome cause!! We ALL know someone that can benefit from this very worthy program!

So, who wants to WIN their own tailgate kit valued at $110 courtesy of Kraft?! Just complete the mandatory entry in the Rafflecopter form below and do as many of the optional entries as you'd like for more chances to win!!

DISCLAIMER: Kraft Foods is providing the prize for this program at no cost to me and I received a prize pack of equal value for my time. This program is not administered or sponsored by Kraft Foods or its affiliates, but solely by me.

  1. I fight hunger in my hometown by donating to my local food bank. This year, we plan to donate extra produce from our home garden.

  2. Our store has a program where at the checkout stand, you can buy a small bag of groceries that they send to the local soup kitchen. I try to buy at least one or two a month.

  3. I’ve donated to the local food shelf. Glad to know I can give on occasion.

  4. I donate my baked goods to the library and think this is a fantastic program!

  5. We do food drives and baby food drive at my work. Additionally we have 50/50 raffles and half the money goes to a family assistance fund that has been used to help families pay bills and purchase food. I like the program, what a great way to help.

  6. We always donate canned goods when we have a canned food drive in our town!!

  7. I fight hunger in my hometown by volunteering at a distribution center of our local food bank. I help unload the truck, separate the food, and hand it out to needy people in our area. It makes you feel good to make a difference in someone elses life.

  8. Alicia Zirjacks says:

    when I find good deals on food or personal items, I buy extra and donate it to the food bank in town.

  9. We donate canned goods to the soup kitchen in my town!

  10. I know a church who accepts canned food as donations, and that would help others with hunger in my town.

  11. I think this is a great program!

  12. Laura Jacobson says:

    We donate to the food shelves whenever we can.

  13. I like to donate when we can to the food banks in my area.I also like the way that companies give back to the communities like Kraft is with the fight hunger campaign.

  14. bah! this is making me think about BBQ meats! grrrr now im hungry :-)

  15. april yedinak says:

    I think this is a great program. I help fight hunger by feeding a large amount of neighborhood kids. Sad to say that between parents gone working all the time (so no one is there to feed them and then too tired to make nutritious meals when they are home) and/or simple negligence, there are a lot of kids going hungry. So, my house and kitchen are always open and I feed whoever shows up. There are some kids that are so grateful for a cupcake or a cookie because they never get them. The kids have even learned that if they show up to help me carry stuff in after I grocery shop that there will be candy for them, so I never have to carry anything in myself. Pretty good trade if you ask me! Over the last two years my open kitchen policy has not only helped my children gain lots of new friends, but also brought them a greater appreciation for the blessings they have.

  16. I donate to the local shelter!

  17. NiCole Lynn says:

    We donate canned goods to the schools food drive.

  18. Jill A. Collins says:

  23. I am always taking food to our local Food Bank once a month I use the coupons I win or get for surveys to help those in need. I love that Kraft is helping fight hunger and wish other big companies would too.

    I love what Kraft does to help the hungry. Wish other companies were even a little generous.

  27. Cheryl Abdelnour says:

    I donate to the food pantry.

  28. donate to the City Union Mission

  29. My local newspaper has a section in the paper every Wednesday saying what the local shelters are short on that particular week. Using coupons and the local sales, I try and buy the things they most need. I used to help out at local food shelters a lot, especially in college. So I was able to see first hand, what a difference that food makes.

  30. Mechele Johnson says:

    I think the program is magnificent! In my own town, our tribe has their own foodbank. I help by volunteering every Thursday and by donating when I can!

  31. melissa williams says:

    It’s great that Kraft is helping out the community. We haven’t donated recently for financial reasons and just being able to get enough for our family, but we used to donate nonperishable food items to food bank. I can’t wait to be financially fit to help out with that again.

    We use to give food to our local food pantry. I’m not proud to say that we have slacked off on this… we just didn’t have the extra money while my husband was laid off from work, we haven’t quite caught up on our bills yet, so after that I’m hoping to get back to donating!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!!!
