Mario Lopez reveals an ingenious way to support nutrition

DENVER, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the prices of everyday items continue to rise with inflation and budgets tighten, many communities across the country face hunger. In November 2021, Ibotta, a leading digital rewards platform, was offering free Thanksgiving dinners and when its savers redeemed their offers, many turned around and generously donated their meals to others. From these acts of kindness, a new idea was born: a Big Game cashback offer that would benefit Feeding America®.

To make shopping even more rewarding, Ibotta is donating $1 to Feeding America for every frozen pizza deal redeemed, up to $50,000. Not only does this offer help users put food on their own table, but it also helps provide meals for families facing hunger.

The good news doesn’t end there, however – Ibotta will also be offering one lucky winner the chance to have Access Hollywood actor and host Mario Lopez “crash” their Big Game night via a special online appearance. .

“My wife, kids, and I have always been committed to helping families in need, so partnering with Ibotta to raise awareness of this Big Game offering and returning element for Feeding America felt like a natural extension of our values,” Lopez said. “The big game is to come together and spend quality time, and making that possible for families facing hunger makes this campaign even more meaningful. I am honored to help raise the profile of this fundraising effort.

To enter the contest and have the chance to welcome Mario to your Big Game party, you must be a user of the Ibotta app, which is free at or by downloading the app for free and by following the registration instructions.
