I recently had the chance to work on a project with ConAgra Foods - you might know them from labels such as Hunts, Banquet, Marie Callender's, Chef Boyardee, and Orville Redenbacher. Because giving back to the community is important to both ConAgra Foods and Mom of 2 Boys, Wife of 1 a donation to the Atlanta Community Food Bank of $500 was given in my name. I was also given a bunch of coupons for free products (like those pictured below) and was thrilled to be able to donate them all to local flood victims this past month.
I encourage all bloggers to give back to your communities whenever you have the chance. Here is what the Development Director had to say:
Lisa and Candy (ConAgra Foods),
Thank you so much for your generosity! We're so honored to be chosen by you and Conagra. Demand for food assistance is at some of the highest levels we've seen in our 30 year history and this gift will make an incredible difference. Conagra is a national partner in the fight against hunger, and Lisa, you have helped the Atlanta Community Food Bank serve more than 800 local, grassroots organizations feed more people in need. This gift will help provide 1,500 meals to those in need. Thank you so much and please let me know if you ever have any questions.

Working with great companies such as ConAgra Foods and getting emails such as the one from Atlanta Community Food Bank not only sets a great example for my children, but makes me feel great that 1,500 people in my community went to sleep with a full belly.
Thank you ConAgra Foods for such a wonderful opportunity.
