Shedds Spread is donating money to help feed the poor. They have a site to 'share' an action or recipe that will add to the amount they give. Up to one million plates of food they have promised to give.

When I was just there, they are only on 8,226 plates. They need a LOT more people 'clicking on the plate' to send an action they have taken, or a recipe. You are not limited to one click on the plate--so lets help those people in need get more to eat!

These people are way short of their goal. Surely (don't call me surely) people can share a recipe or a time they helped someone out.

The site is slow, but if they are willing to donate up to one millioin plates of food, surely we can help them out with a story or two? There are less than 18,000 so far.

Quote:
Every year my church supplies meal baskets to those in the community that have none. However in later years the amount of meals has increased immensely and so has the demand and yet every year a church that has nothing somehow is able to give a full turkey and everything in between to feed an 8 person family. It never amazes me that people that have nothing, give everything, and those that have everything give next to nothing.


Just a sample response to the question, have you shared? Yes, those who have little give more than those who have everything.

As I tried to tell BB in another thread--it is all about attitude!

Please help folks. I would love to have Country Crock donate all million plates as they said they would. Hungry people need the help. If you don't want to share an experience, share a recipe.

Please.

Less than 25,000 donated out of 1 Million proposed. I hope people will give them some recipes soon.

Never dreamed they would have so few sharing people donate.

Only 25,416. I would like to see the Country Crock people give the entire one million meals--but they are still asking for stories of sharing, or recipes.

Guess I will look up some of my mother's recipes. They are generally pretty interesting.

link is in first post...

Thanks for constantly reminding us about this, Dori. I add recipes whenever I think of something.

275,024. Way short of the one million they aimed for.

Hard to believe...
