Soft and fluffy crescent rolls brimming with the cozy flavor combination of sweet potato and nutmeg, and smothered with honey butter — in partnership with Red Star Yeast and Stop Hunger Now as part of World Hunger Action Month.
I was very fortunate to grow up in a home where I never had to go to bed hungry. We always had food on our table, almost all of which was healthy and homemade by my mother. Casseroles, roasted chicken, vegetables straight from our garden, baked bread and sweet treats are just a few examples of the wonderful food that filled our bellies every day.
I don’t often think about my good fortune, or about how many children and adults in the world don’t have it near as good. But it’s a sad fact that hunger is all around us.
Poor nutrition is responsible for the deaths of over three million children each year.
One in eight people will go to bed hungry tonight.
Nearly one billion people suffer from chronic hunger worldwide.
These are sobering statistics that make me grateful for every meal.
Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization which focuses on bringing about long-term, sustainable change to areas of the world most impacted by hunger and malnutrition. Since 2005 volunteers working with Stop Hunger Now have provided millions of families, schools, orphanages and clinics with nutritious meals. Each six-serving meal contains rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, flavorings and 21 essential vitamins and nutrients.
These meals are saving lives and changing communities.
What can we do?
The amount of need in the world can seem daunting, but there are lots of ways— big and small— that we can help. A portion of proceeds from Red Star Yeast purchases will be donated to Stop Hunger Now, so use this BOGO coupon and feel good about it!
Also, consider getting involved in your local community to work to end hunger in your area. This could mean contacting your local food bank, or be as simple as sharing some baked rolls with a neighbor in need.
