New Leaf Market Supports the Pound For Pound Challenge
America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend food bank is working harder every day to assist individuals and their families throughout Tallahassee and the Big Bend in these tough economic times. Fighting hunger is a daily challenge, and they are always looking for new ways to assist in their mission and meet it head on.
That’s why Second Harvest is so excited to announce their involvement in the Pound For Pound Challenge! Now in its third year, this proven fundraising program has partnered with NBC’s The Biggest Loser, General Mills, Larabar and Subway, to encourage Americans to “Lose Nationally, Feed Locally.” And we need your support to make our involvement a success!
Participating is easy and your impact can be huge. Simply sign up and pledge your weight loss goals at www.pfpchallange.com. For every pound you pledge, the Pound for Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to Second Harvest – enough to secure one pound of groceries for America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend.
The more sign ups and pledges a food bank has from its area, the more funds it receives. So please help us by signing up now and encouraging others to sign up and/or pledge!
