Two Minutes: We Timed It

Day 213
I don’t often shop at Walmart.  Today I’m glad I did.  Otherwise I wouldn’t have known about a new partnership between the superstore giant and General Mills.  Together, they hope to donate 15 million meals to food banks nationwide.   

On participating General Mills brands (including cereal, granola bars and side dishes), there’s a computer barcode you can type in to secure seven meals for your local food bank.  In Cincinnati, GM meals will be delivered to the Free Store in Over-the-Rhine.

It took less than two minutes (the boys and I timed it) to log in and enter our codes and send 21 meals to an empty pantry shelf and someone's empty stomach.  Isn't it funny how logging in filled us up?
