CAMDEN, N.J., Nov 4, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- With a simple mouse click, NFL fans across the country can help direct much-needed donations to help feed America's hungry. Campbell's(R) Chunky soup has officially launched Click for Cans(TM), which is part of Campbell's season-long Tackling Hunger 2003 effort. The program aims to raise awareness for the issue of hunger and provide a significant donations to food banks nationwide.

Click for Cans is a unique on-line food drive on the Chunky soup website, www.chunky.com. To participate, fans simply need to click on the helmet logo of their favorite NFL team. For every click, Campbell Soup Company will make a donation of one can of Campbell's soup in the name of the fan's designated team to food banks across the country. The Click for Cans website intends to raise a 5,000,000 can soup donation.

Click for Cans donations are made over the course of the year to a variety of hunger relief charities across the country, in NFL cities and in many of the 30,000 communities of Campbell retail partners. Click for Cans will run until the 5,000,000 can goal is reached.

A Serious Issue

Hunger continues to be a very serious problem in the United States. According to the USDA, more than 33 million Americans do not always know where their next meal will come from, including 13 million children who are affected by hunger.

"We are very excited to again offer consumers the opportunity to Click for Cans," said Jeremy Fingerman, President, U.S. Soup - Campbell Soup Company. "This program offers an immediate and impactful way for Americans to join us in making a difference in communities across the country."

Campbell and the NFL have been working together to tackle hunger across the country since 1997, with a six-season total donation of more than 32 million pounds of food that have been donated to hunger-relief charities across the country. Last season alone, the Chunky/NFL Tackling Hunger program donated more than 6 million cans of soup. This season, the goal is to surpass that impressive total.
