Fiesta to Feed Families Simple Service Project #Fiesta4Kids

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

This weekend my family and I partnered with Champions for Kids to serve our local food pantry in our first Simple Service Project.  What is a Simple Service Project?  Simple Service Projects are simple ways for people to help children in your community.  Knowing that for millions of children, the end of the school year means no more access to school breakfasts, lunches or after-school snack, we decided to help by putting together a Fiesta to collect non-perishables for local students facing hunger.

Every SIMPLE Service Project has 4 basic steps:

  • GATHER your friends, family, and co-workers.
  • LEARN about the needs of children in your community.
  • GIVE items to help kids enjoy happier & healthier lives.
  • SHARE your story with us to inspire others.

We asked family and friends to come to our Fiesta to Feed Families Party and help our cause by bringing a couple of  non-perishable items for us to donate.  I made things super easy by putting together a taco bar with supplies to create their own Jennie-O Turkey Tacos.  I also made yummy Taco Salad also using Jennie-O Turkey.

The non-perishable items we collected will be going  to Three Square, one of my favorite Las Vegas charities.  Their mission is: “To provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger free community.”  They are an amazing organization and are the only food bank providing food assistance to residents in Southern Nevada.

  2. Great little party idea.We always donate a lot of food products to our local food banks.

  3. we try to always support endeavours to feed hungry kids. this is such a great campaign!

  4. I love this party fiesta idea! We donate foods to the USPS drive a few times a year and it’s so much that our mail lady has to get out of her truck and haul it in!

  5. Looks like you put on quite the spread and it looked very easy to do! Thanks for sharing.

  6. I’m always looking for service projects to do with the kids. Thanks!

  10. This would be a great party idea. I’m often trying to gather non-perishables for our food bank. It’s a great cause to give to!

  11. What an excellent cause and idea! We live in a fairly poor and rural area. We do donate often, but posts like this make me want to donate more! Thanks!

  12. What a great idea. Have a donating party and treat everyone with tex-mex!

  16. Love this! Sounds YUMMY! I am a total fan of Mexican food!

  17. This is a cause that I can get behind. I think it would be fun to have a get-together every so often and have friends bring their donations. I feel so inspired.

  18. That is such a great cause. And who doesn’t love Mexican food!

  19. I love this campaign! Such a great way to spread awareness & gather donations while having a good meal!

  20. Breaks my heart to think of the joy that summertime brings, but that some kids don’t experience the same joy because it means they’re hungry. :( Always happy to hear of companies and programs helping to bring awareness and make a difference!

  21. I love the idea behind this! What a great way to get everyone involved. I also love your cute party idea.

  22. Love this idea!Mexican food is my fav!

  31. What a great idea!tacos are amazing. It’s so sad that so many kids don’t get to experience fun summers. This is so awesome!

  32. This is a great idea and great cause. I think many people forget that there are kids that really rely on those school meals!
