Mario Lopez Reveals an Ingenious Way To Support Feeding America® Simply By Earning Cash Back on Party Snacks

Lopez plans to crash the Big Game Bash of one lucky fan

DENVER, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As prices for everyday items continue to rise with inflation and budgets become tighter, many communities across the country are facing hunger. In November 2021, Ibotta, a leading digital rewards platform, offered free Thanksgiving dinners and when its Savers redeemed their offers, many turned around and generously donated their meals to others. From those acts of kindness, a new idea was born: a cash back offer for the Big Game that would benefit Feeding America®.

Through February 13, 2022, Ibotta is offering its first-ever Big Game savings bundle, where shoppers can earn 100% cash back rewards on popular game day staples including frozen pizza, non-alcoholic beverages, chips, cheese, dips, and chocolate chip cookies.

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

The good news doesn’t stop there, though – Ibotta will also be giving away the chance for one lucky winner to have actor and Access Hollywood host, Mario Lopez “crash” their Big Game party via an online special appearance.

“My wife, children and I have always been committed to helping families in need, so partnering with Ibotta to spread the word about this Big Game offer and its give-back element for Feeding America felt like a natural extension of our values,” said Lopez. “The Big Game is about coming together and spending quality time, and making that possible for families facing hunger gives this campaign even more meaning. I’m honored to help raise the visibility of this fundraising effort.”

To enter the giveaway and have the chance to welcome Mario into your Big Game party, you must be a user of the Ibotta app, which is free to join at or by downloading the App for free and following the registration instructions. Once registered, users can earn one (1) entry into the Giveaway when they redeem the Big Game frozen pizza offer. Contest ends Feb 8, 2022 at 11:59pm MST.
