According to the USDA, an estimated 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, making the issue a growing reality in every community. By simply entering codes from specially-marked General Mills products at OutnumberHunger.com, Americans can help make a difference in their local communities at a time when it matters most.

“Hunger is a year-round issue but it can be especially critical in the spring, so Feeding America food banks need help now,” said Vicki B. Escarra, president and CEO, Feeding America. “The combined reach that General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s artists bring to the hunger crisis will help provide critical resources at this key time.”

This powerful group of partners is using its collective voice to rally Americans for the cause. Codes will appear on millions of specially-marked packages of General Mills products to give people the chance to help Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of their local food banks. For every code entered by March 1, 2013, General Mills will donate $0.65 to Feeding America – enough to secure five meals on behalf of local food banks – up to a total maximum donation of $2,100,000. General Mills has already donated $700,000 and will donate up to an additional $1,400,000 based on online code entry and other consumer actions.
