For every Land O'Lakes recipe pinned or repinned on Pinterest, the Land O'Lakes Foundation donates $1 (up to $300,000) to Feeding America®. This commitment equals a donation of 2.7 million meals, with $1 helping to provide 9 meals.
The Land O'Lakes Pin A Meal, Give A Meal Pinterest board, Facebook page, Twitter page and website will feature recipes visitors can share on Pinterest. The pins and repins will be tracked, and the donation will be made directly to Feeding America ®.
Those who don't use Pinterest can donate to Feeding America® by visiting www.feedingamerica.org/landolakes.
