Gallo Family Vineyards Gives Back to Meals On Wheels

'Every Cork Counts' campaign will donate $100,000 to hunger efforts

Add another to The Daily Meal's list of 44 ways to fight hunger in America: Gallo Family Vineyards is pairing up with Meals On Wheels for the third year in a row, to donate $100,000 to help the more than 8 million seniors facing hunger. 

And it really is as simple as uncorking a bottle of wine: in the "Every Cork Counts" campaign, all you have to do is send in your corks back to the winery, and a $5 donation will be made to Meals On Wheels. Gallo Family Vineyards will donate up to $90,000 to Meals On Wheels; an additional $10,000 will be donated from the Gallo interactive Facebook game (an excuse to be on Facebook during the work day).

"“For the third year in a row, the Every Cork Counts program allows our family to help the millions of seniors who needlessly face the threat of hunger every day," said third-generation Gallo family member Stephanie Gallo in a release. 

You can find the address for the winery at the Every Cork Counts website; so far, more than 5,000 corks have been donated. Now you have every reason to load up on Gallo Family wines this Thanksgiving. (And find more ways to fight hunger in your hometown.)
