Hunger Action Month Way of the Day: “Fill the Barrel, Feed the Need”

September 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

At all Austin-area Randalls and select H-E-B stores you can “Fill the Barrel, Feed the Need.” Purchase and donate healthy, non-perishable food items in the barrels located at the store entrances at all Austin-area Randalls and select H-E-B stores. This is a great activity to do with your children. Some ideas:

  • Let your children choose healthy foods in the stores and have them place the food in the barrels.
  • Cook with the same food that you will be donating.  Have your children participate in the meal preparation. Discuss how a family in need may be enjoying a similar meal as your family.
  • Choose the cheapest non-perishable item and look at the ingredient list.  Have a discussion with your children about weather they would consider it to be healthy.
