FDA Homeless Shelter Donations

Claim:   The FDA is donating $1 to homeless shelters for every person who changes their Facebook profile picture to their favorite food.

FALSE

Example:   [Collected via e-mail, January 2011]

It's National Hunger Awareness Month and for every person who changes their profile picture to their favorite food, the (FDA) food and drug administration will donate $1 to homeless shelters nationwide. Let's feed our fellow American's!! Re-post this as your status and change your pic.

 

Origins:   This is the same old hoax it always is: neither the FDA nor any other government agency is donating money to homeless shelters based on the number of people who change their Facebook profile pictures.
