Kroger Family of Stores' Pound For Pound Challenge and Giveaway



How many of us have watched the Biggest Loser on TV and thought about the weight we need to lose? I know I have. I gained 25-30 pounds over the past couple years and would love to lose a lot of that because my body fat percentage is very high. This is preventing me from getting some health insurance discounts at work, so I even have motivation.

The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, General Mills, NBC's hit TV Show "The Biggest Loser" and other key sponsors are partnering to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year.

Interested in helping with this? Here's what you can do.

Visit www.pfpchallenge.com/Kroger to make your pledge to lose weight and to get more information and to find tools to change your life for the better. It is free, easy and only takes a minute to make a change that can help you and help the hungry in your local community.

Through June 30, 2010, for every pound you pledge to lose, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America® - enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.


As the official supplier of the Biggest Loser Ranch and partner of the Pound for Pound Challenge, the Kroger Family of Stores wants to help you achieve your goals. If you´re a fan of the Biggest Loser, you may have seen several great General Mills products featured on the show. These products, including Yoplait Greek yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios, are available at your local Kroger Family of Stores and can help you stick to your weight management plan.

In case you are wondering, the Kroger Family of Stores includes Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillon's, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.

The Giveaway

The Kroger Family stores, along with MyBlogSpark have given me the opportunity to provide one of my readers $30 in Kroger family of stores' gift cards.

Note: Please be sure to leave an email address in your comment if it's not public on your blogger profile.
