Guest post by Challenge Champion Patti Anderson: The Pound For Pound Challenge is a partnership among The Biggest Loser, Feeding America, General Mills & Subway to help Feeding America secure millions of pounds of groceries on behalf of local food banks across the U.S.
The Biggest Loser motivates millions of viewers to lose weight and this made a great partner for The Pound For Pound Challenge, which seeks to inspire weight loss as well as provide hunger relief for America.
As a Season 9 contestant on The Biggest Loser, I am honored to be the Challenge Champion for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano and our message has been heard by so many within our communities. To date, our Food Bank is ranked number one in California with 960 team members who have pledged 26,727 pounds!
Although the Pound For Pound Challenge ends this year on May 31st, our journey to health & fitness continues as does the help needed at our Food Banks across the country to provide hunger-relief to low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive.
