Trigger Donations to Feeding America With a Simple Click

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2011) - Nearly 49 million Americans, or one in six, don't always know where their next meal will come from.

Hunger is a problem we can tackle with the right team, right plays and right focus.

This football season, Kraft Foods has been on a mission to make an impact with the second year of its Huddle to Fight Hunger campaign, the larger hunger relief effort of its kind, to help donate the monetary equivalent of 25 million meals to Feeding America.

"I'm honored to have teamed up with Kraft Foods to help fight hunger," says former football great Joe Montana. "We're close to our meal donation goal, but still need your help. It's easy to make a difference. I challenge you to 'like' Kraft Fight Hunger at Facebook and you will trigger a one meal donation to Feeding America."

Join the huddle and help. And, tune-in to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl to watch UCLA take on the University of Illinois on ESPN at 12:30pm PT on New Year's Eve. Great seats are still available. Visit www.kraftbowl.org for ticket info.
