For many kids, lunch bags or lunch boxes are an integral part of their school experience. While some kids have a nutritious lunch every day, many school-aged children are food insecure. No Kid Hungry works towards the goal of eliminating childhood food security.
No Kid Hungry campaign is the Share Our Strength campaign to end childhood hunger. In addition to promoting the conversation about childhood hunger, No Kid Hungry creates events to raise funds for this worthy cause. While anyone can host a bake sale fundraiser for the campaign, celebrity-driven fundraisers help to promote the cause to a wide audience.
Did you know that a $1 donation to this charity can help to provide 10 meals to children in need? Truthfully, in today’s world, what can you honestly purchase for $1? For many people, their morning coffee stop costs five times as much. Just think how much giving up one-morning coffee could do to help end childhood hunger.

It’s hard to believe, but 1 in 6 children in the United States face hunger? (That’s not ok) I’ve teamed up with @NoKidHungry and @Motts to help “draw” attention to child hunger in a creative way. This is a cause near and dear to my heart, so please take the time to check out the eBay page to bid on the lunch bag I’ve designed! This one of a kind work of art will go to the highest bidder and all proceeds will go directly towards changing lives! A $1 donation can help provide 10 meals for children in need. #partner #hungercantwait https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mott-s-No-Kid-Hungry-Lunch-Bag-Sarah-Michelle-Gellar/113257624856?hash=item1a5eae3518:g:Uk8AAOSwvfBboTDb
Currently, Mott’s has partnered with No Kid Hungry and several celebrities to create lunch bags. These lunch bags are being auctioned off on Ebay, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. The charity auction runs through September 29.
The celebrities participating in this campaign are Sarah Michelle Gellar (actress), Landry Bender (actress), Jordana Brewster (actress), Gia Lopez (8-year-old daughter of Mario and Courtney Lopez), Danielle Monaro (Elvis Duran and the Morning Show) and Janice Dean (Fox News TV host and author).
Each celebrity has created her own lunch bag. From Sarah Michelle Gellar’s inspiration words to Jordana Brewster’s cheery sunflower, each lunch bag is cute. While I doubt that anyone will use these bags for a school lunch, it would be a fun conversation piece. More importantly, all the money goes to such a worthy charity.
If you want to bid on one of these lunch bags, don’t forget that the auction ends on September 29. Also, consider making a donation to No Kid Hungry. No child should feel food insecure.
