Neighbors unite to help end hunger
for our kids.
When having your Christmas and holiday parties, ask each guest to bring a few items to fill a bin for donation to KidsEat! People love to donate during the giving season. Lynda Brown has done this for many years with her neighborhood ladies' group. Instead of exchanging a gift, each lady brings a sack full of food. If you are a business, make a Christmas Tree of the collected food and then donate it to KidsEat! Program.
If you have a talent or gift of speaking you can sponsor an event featuring your skill or talent. If you have a band, are a dancing club or other performing group, have a performance and have the price of admission be food. Jeremy Holm is an example of making this work ! He presented a wonderful motivational seminar.
We'll take non-perishable and unexpired food that kids love. The healthier, the better! Remember we are filling backpacks so no oversized items please.

Departments within a company or business can have an inter-departmental challenge. The winning department
gets a reward. The Utah Department of Corrections is a great example of a successful “Challenge”. The winning
Department got a pancake breakfast with the Chief and with Lynda Brown and Bob Dunn, VP, B&G Club of
Greater Salt Lake. Murray City Employees did a similar drive as well to help feed our kids !
