You will want to delete all the food pics from your Instagram after reading this
Shooting the perfect foodstagram is no easy feat. Between lighting issues, having to stand on your chair to nail a good composition, and the fact that you're probably distracting everyone else in the restaurant from the peaceful enjoyment of their own meals, capturing the perfect food pic is harder than it looks. But if you're anything like us, you've probably racked up quite a few food pics on your Instagram. And thanks to a new initiative, deleting those pics can make a real difference for people who can only dream of eating at the kinds of places that populate the Explore page.
Through Delete to Feed, a new campaign by Land O'Lakes, Instagram users are encouraged to delete their food pics in an effort to fight hunger in the U.S., as Grubstreet reports. For every avocado toast and birds eye brunch photo you delete, the butter company will donate 11 meals to Feeding America. All you have to do is sign up at the campaign's website by authorizing a connection to your Instagram. Then, when the website pulls up your feed, you just select the food pics you're ready to part with. When you delete them via the Instagram app, the website awards you with a badge and donates the meals. Naturally, the website allows you to brag about it on social media after.
You have to take 'em to delete them, right? Here are some of our favorite food Instagrams from last year:
"Instagram is full of food posts, but millions of Americans go hungry each year," the Delete to Feed site says. "You can make a difference. Turn your food posts into real meals."
You have until mid-October — aka when the campaign hits 2.75 million donated meals — to get deleting. Who knows, you might even gain some new followers, too.
