Hello and welcome to Mommy Tell All Monday, where we share all things related to motherhood. Today I am going to be sharing ways we can help to End Hunger + Simple Acts of Service.
While I was grocery shopping at Walmart the other day, I was thinking about how grateful I am for the women in my life who display simple acts of service on a regular basis. Being around those who serve others influences you to serve others as well. One friend in particular (though I have many) came to mind, and right there in the grocery store I decided I was going to serve her. Whether she is serving her family, her friends, her church, or even complete strangers, my friend Brit is always thinking of others. So I picked up some yummy ingredients to make my family and her family a tasty summer dinner.
I purchased Tyson Grilled and Ready Fajita Chicken Strips, spring greens mix, black beans, corn, avocado, cheddar cheese, tortilla strips, Ranch dressing, and salsa. I was so excited to get home to whip up this quick, healthy, summer meal!
It only took me about 15 minutes to put this yummy Fajita Chicken Summer Salad together for both my family and my friend’s family (you can find the recipe at the bottom of this post). The chicken is grilled and ready so you just have to heat it up prior to eating it. I also made a cute Random Acts of Kindness tag that I attached to the meal to encourage more simple acts of service (you can print off the tags HERE), and drove it over to Brit’s house to surprise her and her family.
LOL! Aren’t they the cutest? And Brit confirmed that not only did she have 2 bowls of salad, the kids gobbled it down for dinner too! Talk about a WIN for this girl!
How can we provide simple acts of service and help end hunger? Tyson makes it that much easier for us! They have partnered with Champions for Kids for a program called #SummerofGiving. Ending hunger is a very important initiative to Tyson Foods. The Tyson Family Foundation initiative, KNOW Hunger, is a project designed to encourage people to KNOW the scope of hunger in their own communities and get involved in relief efforts, so that someday there will be NO hunger in our country. Find out more about this initiative HERE.
So… where do we come in? For every bag of Tyson product purchased from Walmart by you and me, one meal will be donated to a child in need by Tyson! Isn’t that amazing? Wait…it gets better. Walmart has promised to feed 5 million kids this summer as well! I love when companies give back and promote doing good. So head to your local Walmart and pick up a bag of Tyson’s Grilled and Ready Chicken Fajita Chicken so that you can make this yummy salad for your family and a family you’d like to serve….plus help end hunger by purchasing these products. It’s a win-win my friends!
