Pound for Pound Challenge

The North Texas Food Bank, Feeding America, General Mills and NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” are working together for the Pound for Pound Challenge, a weight-loss plan that allows you to lose weight while helping your neighbors in need. For those of you looking to start a New Year’s Resolution, this is the challenge for you! Participating is easy and free. Simply pledge to lose weight at Pound for Pound Challenge to help your community. For every pound pledged by North Texans, 14 cents will be donated to the North Texas Food Bank To help promote the Pound for Pound Challenge at the North Texas Food Bank, pop singer/songwriter Nick Jonas helped Close the Gap during a special volunteer event with Kroger and Chase where he surprised Food Bank staff with a gift of $25,000.

Check out “The Biggest Loser” episode featuring Nick and the North Texas Food Bank on February 2.

The North Texas Food Bank is the charity I hosted a food drive during the holidays. They were so grateful for the donation & so easy to work with. Please take a few mins and sign up for the challenge & help FEED AMERICA!
