Weight Watchers will help the hungry as members lose


Weight Watchers helps the hungry as members lose

Weight Watchers has launched Lose for Good, a campaign to empower people to get healthier while also giving back to those in need.

For every pound lost by Weight Watchers members in St. Petersburg, Weight Watchers will donate the cost of 1 pound of food — up to $1-million. The six-week campaign kicked off Sept. 7 and ends Oct. 18. The proceeds will go to Share Our Strength, which works to make sure no child in America grows up hungry, and Action Against Hunger, which helps feed people in troubled parts of the world.

In St. Petersburg, the food collected will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul.
