When women get together for a good cause, great things can happen. Dallas mommy blogger Laura Thornquist turned her local women’s association meeting into a Child Hunger Ends Here Neighborhood Rally. In addition to collecting cans and funds, the group discussed the issue of child hunger within their local school district and came up with simple ways they could each make a difference. “This event was about food, fun, friendship and a community effort to help those in need,” said Thornquist. Sometimes just starting the conversation about ending child hunger can lead to actions that make a huge impact.

While the Child Hunger Ends Here Neighborhood Rally Campaign has come to a close, the fight against child hunger will continue both on this blog, through the ConAgra Foods Foundation and with the help of readers like you.
Every rally, every re-Tweet, every post and word of encouragement has brought us one step closer to ending child hunger. We appreciate all of the support and will continue the discussion to encourage even more people to help the smallest victims of hunger live better lives. We will share more on our results in the coming weeks.
The Child Hunger Ends Here Neighborhood Rally Campaign would like to personally thank our army of benevolent bloggers whose efforts both online and off have made this program a roaring success:
