Teaming up with Feeding America (www.feedingamerica.org), the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, STOUFFER’S® will give away more than 10,000 meals to families at risk of hunger, and thousands more to winners via their Facebook page. STOUFFER’S® and Feeding America are launching Meal a Minute in recognition of Food Day, which brings together Americans from all walks of life to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.

Consumers can log on and like the STOUFFER’S® Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/stouffers) and register for a chance to win a coupon for a free SAUTES FOR TWO™ meal beginning Tuesday, November 1, 2011 through the Meal a Minute sweepstakes link.
