MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Forty-nine million people in America don’t know where their next meal will come from. So today, WCCO Radio and the Taste of the NFL are teaming up to end hunger.

This is the third annual “Let’s Kick Hunger Day” radiothon, which benefits Second Harvest Heartland and other Feeding America food banks through the Taste of the NFL.

All proceeds will go to feed those who rely on food banks.

Minnesota’s Second Harvest Heartland will receive 50 percent of the donation, with the other 50 percent going to food banks in other NFL cities around the country.

To make a donation, call 952-886-4376 or 877-866-4376 or visit www.letskickhungerday.com.

    Really? With all of our welfare programs…..and liberal money hand outs…..there are still 49 million people starving? We have 307 million people in the US…and nearly 50 million are starving? So I guess our liberal handouts are not working! I mean if 1 in 5 Americans are starving…….it has all been an epic fail!!!

    MN EBT cards are used in every state in the Nation and in 5 different countries. And you wonder why we are ranked 4th in the Nation for Income Tax.

        Not at all. I love paying the 4th highest income tax in the nation so our welfare can be enjoyed around the world. Dont you?
