Liza of Views From The ‘Ville and her family decided to include friends in taking the Make The Switch Challenge with Jennie-O and Champions For Kids. Liza created a healthy meal to share, using lean Jennie-O turkey in her lasagna recipe. The discussion topic for her dinner party: “helping to educate our family and friends on the needs of our community, and then making a donation to meet some of those needs.”
Over just a few weeks of giving up pre-made breakfasts and some sweets, Liza’s family was able to make a donation of healthy foods to help children in need in her community and is inspired to continue to reach out.
The results of her dinner party created an even greater impact. “Everyone was surprised to find out just how many children are at risk for hunger in our country on a daily basis. Once they heard just how great the need is everyone wanted to know how they could help. When I told them that we were collecting donations to take to the next LifeBridge Basic Needs Drive some people gave monetary donations and others asked if they could drop off food donations to go over with ours.”
