For the second year, General Mills is kicking off its “Outnumber Hunger” Campaign. During April and May, you can help unlock 10 million meals for the nation’s food banks, including Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. General Mills products (from cereal to yogurt to boxed meals) with the Outnumber Hunger logo can trigger a donation to Feeding America and your local food bank. All you have to do is visit the Outnumber Hunger website and enter the participating product codes - a donation is that easy!

Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity.
Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.
Feeding America food banks will receive 65% of revenue generated by the Charity Miles app in their service area. So get movin' Pittsburgh!
