5 Food Sweepstakes for Charity You Can Enter Right Now
Even though it's devastating how the coronavirus pandemic has put much of the world on pause while we do our best to socially distance and stay out of public spaces as much as possible, it's important to look to the future. This will end and we will come out of this. Though the timeline might be uncertain now, staying hopeful is one way to remain positive during this difficult time.
Although we have all been impacted by COVID-19 in different ways and to varying degrees, we can't forget about those who are struggling even more. Those who rely on donations to provide food for themselves and their families need our help now more than ever. The All In Challenge is a platform for celebrities to post sweepstakes where all of the donations go toward providing food to kids, the elderly, and frontline heroes. All of the proceeds raised go to Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, American's Food Fund, Feeding America, and World Central Kitchen.
The All In Challenge provides a mechanism for you to look to the future (though none of the sweepstakes have dates, winners will be able to enjoy them as soon as it is safe), while also giving back to those most in need. There are currently over 100 different sweepstakes that you can enter to be "All In", but if you're a foodie, we've got your top five.
