unplugged week: No Kid Hungry

unpluggedThe purpose of Unplugged Week is to focus on our relationships and connection without those go-to distractions. In addition (for us) it seems that the more screen time our kids have the grumpier they are. As adults we can’t help but feel happiest when we’re helping others, and with our various projects over the years with Small Fry, the boys seem to be in the same boat. It just feels good! So, today our Unplugged Tip is to plan a project or outing that helps someone in need. For our project, we joined efforts with Earth’s Best and Ella’s Kitchen with the No Kid Hungry Campaign, an initiative that focuses on ending childhood hunger in America. Millions of kids go to school hungry everyday and that is heartbreaking. Two brands we love and use often, Ella’s Kitchen and Earth’s Best have already donated funds to help provide up to 1.5MM meals to kids in need and together we are encouraging our readership to donate whatever you can to the cause!No Kid Hungry InitiativeFirst, we started by making a list of foods that benefit us, that are healthful and non-perishable. Earth’s Best and Ella’s Kitchen were so nice to help us fill up our baskets so we could donate such amazing snacks that we know the kids will love, find specially marked products exclusively at select Walmarts.No Kid Hungry InitiativeNext, fill up your basket or box to donate to your local Food Pantry. You can source ways to help on their initiative page here. No Kid Hungry InitiativeWe sent off our basket and won’t lie, it was an emotional project to say the least. Talking with the boys about how kids in their own classrooms don’t have enough to eat was eye opening for them. We are always grateful for opportunities to open their (and our own!) eyes and reach outside of ourselves to help.No Kid Hungry Initiative  So for today’s Unplugged activity, find a way to help someone. The time will fly and you can’t help but feel happy and grateful! Be sure to share if you make a similar basket or think of other ways to help end childhood hunger today using the #NoKidHungry and #FeedKidsinNeed hashtags and tag us on Instagram (@smallfryblog.) We’ll select a winner to donate on their behalf in addition to the donations we’ve made to No Kid Hungry with Ella’s Kitchen and Earth’s Best!
