meal your kids will love

I recently bought Marie Callender’s Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese (because it is my favorite – its easy to make & tastes fantastic…) A cheesy meal in a dish.

The kids love it, too.

She may be making a mess of it, but isn’t she cute, just the same?  haha!

(really all of Marie Callender’s homemade meals and desserts are awesome, because they are made with high-quality ingredients and signature special touches that your family can slow down and savor together.).

So, back to the story… when I was looking at the box I noticed something in the bottom right-hand corner

It is about the Comforts From Home Project, where they will be bringing the comforts of home to those who protect America’s homes every day: the brave men and women of the U.S. military.

How does it work?

It’s easy- Simply enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages of Marie Callender’s dinners and desserts online at, and they’ll send a donation to USO2GO. Each code entered equals a $0.50 donation to the USO2GO program.  They have a guaranteed minimum donation of $100,000 and a maximum donation of $250,000. Limit 5 code entries per person/computer each day. Valid in U.S. Only. 

(Here is our son entering the code for us, on the Ipad)…

What is USO2GO?

USO2GO is a USO program that brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world.

What is in the kit?

Each kit will contain the comforts of home, such as games, athletic equipment, books and furnishings. USO2GO kits help to transform a remote base into a place where troops can organize a pick-up football game, relax in beanbag chairs and swap stories, or send e-mails to loved ones back home.

I really just love this because it hits close to home.  We have several friends in the military and knowing that we can help to make things a little more like ‘home sweet home’ is so comforting.
