Let’s Make this a #SummerofGiving & Easy Cold Veggie Salad Recipe

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Summer has arrived and some of us might be ready to enjoy a couple of months of fun times with our kiddos.  I want to share a bit of an eye opener today. 10% of children in the U.S. live in “food insecure homes”.

This means that while we might be planning a picnic at the park with ice cream today

About 1 in every 10 kids might not even get dinner tonight. 

While we’re spending more time with the kids while they are out of school, it’s the perfect time to make a lasting difference together.  I’m excited to share about Champions for Kids and the Summer of Giving program which makes it easy for you and I to help local families in need. We can make a difference by taking part to donate 5 million meals THIS SUMMER!

It’s not hard to do, let’s learn about the simple ways to get involved together, will you join me?  There are two very simple ways to help!

Plus, creating something yummy and simple for your own family! It’s so easy to make and very affordable too!
