Fight Hunger with Walmart + Feeding America
Together, we can help fight hunger in communities across the US.
Did you know 1 in 8 Americans struggles with hunger? That means over 40 million people in the US don’t know when there next meal will be or where it’ll come from. What’s even more chilling is that over 12 million of those people are children and nearly 8 million are senior citizens.
As someone who spent years teaching and studying child psychology, child hunger has always weighed heavily on my heart. Nobody can thrive on an empty stomach.
That’s why I’ve partnered with Walmart, Feeding America® and ShopStyle to fight hunger and spark change.
Interested in making a difference? Helping is easy and even the smallest action can make a big impact.
Walmart is joining forces with their customers, suppliers and the Feeding America network to help fight hunger and spark change in communities across the country. From April 22 – May 20, 2019, the public can support the sixth annual Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign in multiple ways:
Each participating item purchased at Walmart or online will unlock a donation from the supplier equivalent to at least one meal or five meals*—donations will be directed to local food banks across the country
Customers can donate to their local Feeding America member food bank at the register of Walmart stores
Online donations to support local or national hunger relief efforts are accepted through Feeding America’s website
Since its inception, Fight Hunger. Spark Change. has helped secure the equivalent of 749 million meals.** This year, they hope to reach a cumulative goal of one billion meals by May 20, 2019.
Its easy to feel like ending hunger is an overwhelmingly tall order, but you can truly make a difference by simply picking up select items (that you’re probably buying anyway) at Walmart. Each of these snacks (and y’know your girl loves cereal) unlocked a donation by the manufacturer to Feeding America® to secure at least one meal at a local food bank.
