Bob the Builder Award: Macy's "Come+Together"

Wanna hit the world's largest dinner party on Tuesday? Head to the Macy's.

Macy's is sponsoring the "Come+Together" dinner party Tuesday night at 6 pm, across all it's stores in the United States. They are giving away a complimentary first course and the recipe.

Why is the clothing store giving away free food you ask? Good question.

Macy's will be matching all donations dollar for dollar to help provide up to 10 million meals for Feeding America and local food banks. Did you know $1 dollar provides 7 meals for familes in need? While I know the food banks love food stuff donations, I learned from my best food bank director friend, Nicholas, that the money donations get more done in the big picture of their work.

Macy's suggests three ways you can help them help the food bank:
1. Host a dinner party yourself to collect donations from your friends

2. Give a $1 donation at any Macy's

3. Shop for a Cause on October 17th
