If You Delete Your Food Porn Posts, This Company Will Donate To The Hungry

I have no shame in admitting I have an Instagram account dedicated to food.

Yeah, I appreciate food so much that I have to take pictures of everything I eat. It's bad. But it's also become a pretty normal thing to do, no matter where you are.

Unfortunately, the fact is, hunger is a huge issue in our country.

That's why Land O' Lakes partnered with Feeding America to start the Delete To Feed campaign, which encourages foodstagrammers everywhere to delete an upload of food porn to donate 11 meals to those in need.

This campaign gives #eatingfortheinsta a whole new meaning.

After deleting a picture of food on your Instagram page, the company sends you a badge for your account that looks like this:

According to the Delete To Feed site, one in six kids might not know where their next meal is coming from.

It doesn't get better from there, either. About 13 percent of American households struggle with food insecurity.

According to the Department of Agriculture, food insecurity is "limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways," like walking into a store and buying it.

Can you imagine not knowing if you can feed yourself for the next week? Or even your family?

Donating a meal through Delete To Feed is actually really simple and takes just a minute to do.

You start by linking your Instagram account here. Then, you select a food post to delete. That's it!

After that, Delete to Feed donates 11 meals. Of course, you're encouraged to share the badge on social media as well.

So far, over 22,000 meals have been donated.

Doing a good deed and giving people the gift of grub has never been so easy, you guys.

How much does a picture of food porn mean to you, anyway? Probably not as much as feeding someone who actually needs food.
