Walmart’s “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” National Campaign is looking to make a big impact on hunger.
To raise awareness of the issue of hunger in America and help generate meals for those in need, Walmart wanted to create a campaign that got their customers involved in making a difference in a simple yet very impactful way. Walmart launched the “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, a nationwide initiative to encourage the public to join the fight against hunger.
In partnership with Feeding America and 18 large supplier partners, Walmart and Sam’s Club invite their 150 million weekly shoppers to help achieve Feeding America’s ambitious goal of securing 1 billion meals with easy ways to participate – purchasing a participating item in-store or online, a donation in one of the stores or clubs or donating on Feeding America’s website. feedingamerica.org/walmart
In the past five years of this event, Walmart has donated the equivalent of 749 million meals across the country. With equivalent of over 86,000 meals coming right here to Marion and Polk Counties.
We’re grateful to Walmart and its retailers for supporting our organization and the clients we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more.
Here’s How It Works
Now through May 20, 2019 for every participating product purchased at U.S. Walmart stores, Sam’s Club, on walmart.com or samsclub.com during the campaign, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.
