Outnumber Hunger

Now - January 31, 2018

Help generate meals with Outnumber Hunger.


Outnumber Hunger is a partnership between General Mills, Feeding America® and Big Machine Label Group to help Feeding America secure millions of meals on behalf of local food banks.


For every code you enter by January 31, 2018, General Mills will donate 45¢ to Feeding America® – enough to secure 5 meals on behalf of local food banks.* To say thanks for helping, you’ll get access to stream an exclusive Pandora Mixtape from multi-platinum, singer-songwriter Thomas Rhett and his friends at Big Machine Label Group, and a free Pandora Plus trial.

*Maximum total donation of $700,000. General Mills has already donated $500,000 and will donate up to an additional $200,000 based on online code entry and other consumer actions. Look for more information about the program at



Adopt-A-Dairy-CowMilk is a protein-rich product that is rarely donated to Second Harvest. On average, we can only provide approximately 1/3 of the milk that is requested by our partner agencies.

But you can help! This June, to celebrate June Dairy Month, we're looking for 650 "adopters" to adopt the milk production of a cow for a day for just $36.  If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please email Laura Gaffney or call 608.216.7205.

Beyond feeling good about helping those facing hunger this Summer, each adopter will receive an Adoption Certificate that features the "sassy" bovine beauty of their choice. 

What are you waiting for? With your help we can turn June Dairy Month into June Dairy Summer! Adopt-A-Dairy-Cow now!
