Do you ever find yourself wishing you could do more for your child's school but it isn't in your family budget? I felt like this a lot last year when Jude went to school. Jude attends a small Lutheran school that needs every penny it can get but with our medical bills that we are still paying off plus the extra cost of tuition at this school I felt strapped and helpless when it came to giving monetary donations to the school. I said something to Jude's classroom aid about this and she informed me of the Campbell's Labels for Education® . Since that day I make sure to look for the Labels for Education® on products we buy every week.
Labels for Education® is a great program that you can do with a scissors! It is that simple. Find any participating products with a Labels for Education® label and UPC and you can help the school of your choice start saving for items that the school needs and wants. From Campbell's soup, cereal and snacks to dairy products, beverages and food storage – your kitchen’s probably full of eligible Labels for Education® items. So what does that mean? Time to start looking for those labels.
Once you clip those labels you simply turn in the labels to your child's school and they begin to accumulate! You can even check in on the schools progress and see how many points the school has and what is on their wishlist. Pretty cool way to stay involved but not feel strapped financially.
One of our favorite family meals, Hash Brown Casserole, equals 7 points from the Labels for Education. I use both Campbell's potato soup and cream of celery soup for this yummy filling recipe plus I always pair it with some Pepperidge Farm® frozen cheesy garlic bread. All of those items are included in the program! If you pay attention to labels you will find yourself with a lot of them by the end of the week.

This recipe was one of the first recipes Jeremy and I made together in our first apartment after getting married. Since then we have loved making it and recently made it more filling by adding green beans and ham! So good and so filling! Perfect Sunday evening meal.
