All of the proceeds will be donated to Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks that helps fed millions of people through food pantries and shelters.

“The more we all slurp, the more money that goes toward the amazing cause of feeding those in need,” 7-Eleven wrote on its Facebook page. “Invite your friends and mark your calendars. Together, we can freeze out hunger!
