The best way to lose weight is by doing it while help others! St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is asking everyone to participate in this year’s Pound For Pound Challenge. For every pound you pledge to lose, 11 cents will be donated to Feeding America and passed on to support local food banks, and is enough to secure one pound of food.
Visit www.PFPchallenge.com to sign up or to find more information. All Central Phoenix and West Valley zip codes are linked to St. Mary’s Food Bank, or you can use the Food Bank’s zip code (85009) to make sure the pledge comes here. You may pledge to maintain your current weight – Feeding America will still receive 55cents – or you can pledge to lose from five pounds up to 50 pounds! It will all be tracked on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, Tuesday nights at 8 p.m.
Last year, St. Mary’s Food Bank challengers lost a total of 77,389 pounds and raised nearly $11,000. That’s 77,000 meals just by getting in shape and losing weight! The goal is to lose even more and raise even more this time around, so visit www.PFPchallenge.com today.
