ShopRite Partners in Caring has teamed up with General Mills to launch a new video contest called Expressions of Hunger. This local video contest encourages every day people -- from classrooms to choirs, families to friends -- to creatively share their perspective on the issue of hunger through song, dance, poetry or dramatic reading.
Residents of New York (only residents of six states are eligible to enter) will have the chance to be one of six (individuals or groups) to be featured on a limited-edition Cheerios box and have their video featured on the ShopRite Partners In Caring website (http://www.shopritepartnersincaring.org). Entries will be accepted from now through March 1, 2010.
