Kroger & Biggest Loser Pound-for-Pound Challenge:CLOSED

CLOSED!


You´ve seen the Biggest Loser on TV, watched contestant´s struggles and achievements, and may have even thought, "Hey, I can do that!"
Instead of waiting for the BBQs to be over and your schedule to open up, put all excuses aside and make a pledge to live healthier with the Pound For Pound Challenge.

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.

Here´s how you can help:

*Visit the Kroger Pound For Pound Challenge. 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.


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 Kroger Co. Family of Stores and My Blog Spark have generously donated a $30 Gift Card to give to one of our lucky readers!
You can use this card to buy General Mills products to kick-start your weight loss!
