The premiere of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” is this Tuesday, Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on NBC. The show is once again coordinating with Feeding America Food Banks around the country for the “Pound for Pound” Challenge.

Ready to make good on that New Year’s resolution? For every pound you pledge to St. Mary’s Food Bank, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to St. Mary’s. Even if you  are trying to maintain your current weight, a 55-cent pledge will be made just for signing up! St. Mary’s Food Bank raised nearly $11,000 last year and we’re looking to do even better in 2011. More than $1 million is available to Food Banks in 2011. That’s 7 MILLION MEALS!

Sign up at http://www.pfpchallenge.com/. You can join the St Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Team or start your own teams benefiting St Mary’s or your favorite Food Bank.

Looking for encouragement or someone going through the same trials of weight loss? Please check out the entertaining daily blog penned by St Mary’s Community Relations Coordinator Elizabeth Wunsch at  http://wunschwomancantweight.blogspot.com/. It’s a great way to share the experience.

Please spread the word. You’re going to lose that weight. You’re going to be more healthy. You’re going to feel better. Why not make someone else feel better too? Pound for pound, it’s a great program and a great way to help.
