Titled “Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger”, it encourages a small contribution to a worthy cause. We know how the political winds have been blowing fiercely; as the Republicans and Democrats trade charges over the worthiness of programs like food stamps, the good folks at City Harvest are actually trying to do something about it.

To make giving more fun and enticing, the promotion includes prizes if you want to give it a shot – literally!  Simply follow @cityharvest on Twitter, snap a “selfie” of yourself in front of the Big Lunch Bag, and tweet your pic at “@cityharvest” with the hashtag #skiplunchfighthunger.
