Kraft Macaroni & Cheese is one of America's classic comfort foods – kids love it and it's a go-to dish for moms that won't break the bank. Knowing the comfort that a simple dish like macaroni and cheese can bring to tables across the country, the maker of the popular Kraft"Blue Box" is sharing that feeling with those in need with its new"Share a Little Comfort" campaign.
Now, with the simple click of a mouse, anyone who visits www.ShareALittleComfort.com1 can contribute a box of"The Cheesiest" to Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger relief organization. Every click means that one box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese will help feed the hungry … up to one million boxes! Kraft will also be donating $100,000 in cash to the organization.
"We are so grateful to receive this generous donation from Kraft Foods, which will help stock our food banks across the country," said Vicki Escarra, President and CEO of Feeding America."Items like Kraft Macaroni & Cheese are always in demand at our food banks, so it is very exciting for us to meet that need."
"We are ecstatic about partnering with Feeding America to share a little comfort with those in need," says Todd Hjermstad, Brand Manager, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinners."Even better, this campaign is actively engaging Americans to take part in the fight against hunger."
In addition to the website, Kraft Foods is offering another way to share a little comfort. Every"Tweet" on Twitter.com that uses the Share a Little Comfort hash tag (#BlueBox) will count toward the up to one million boxes donation.
