While the financial crisis in the US is causing people to lose or be laid off from their jobs, stay at home more frequently due to gas prices, cut back on splurging and shopping more frugally and also causing people to cut back a bit on the upcoming holiday expenses, some people have been feeling a slight cut back to their financial futures and others have been far less fortunate, slipping into poverty and the already poverty-stricken continuing to be worse off than before. For more than 35 million Americans, the possibility of being without food and not knowing where their next meal is coming from is an unfortunate and constant reality. It is for that reason that V8 has recently partnered with Feeding America to donate over 30 million servings of fresh vegetables to local food banks throughout the country over the next six months.
V8 is committed to making the possibility of a meal a reality to someone in desperate need; just because someone is not able to buy vegetables themselves does not mean that they deserve a well-balanced, nutritious meal any less than someone who can. Growing up, I was told that a full belly stimulates the mind, but many Americans are not fortunate enough to know what a full belly feels like.
You can help V8 with their goal to donate over 30 million servings of fresh vegetables to local food banks throughout the country a few ways. By making V8 a part of your daily routine, you are not only helping yourself get the recommend daily dosage of fruit and vegetables with a variety of V8 juices and soups to choose from, but your purchase goes to help V8 spread the fruit and vegetable love and give to the people who need them most. You can also make a donation, which go directly to go to Feeding America, which is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charity. A donation of just $25 goes to goes to provide 850 servings of vegetables or 98 meals for a family of four or 19 weeks of food per person. You can purchase V8 juices and soups and then donate them and even volunteer at a local food bank.
Help V8 Make Every Serving Count for those who need it most.
